Nothing seems to be going right for Mumbai Indians before IPL 2024. First, the fans have been disappointed with the management of Mumbai Indians since the removal of Rohit Sharma from the captaincy. Now a big update has come out regarding the new captain of the team Hardik Pandya. According to which, it seems difficult for Hardik to play in IPL 2024. After this update regarding Hardik Pandya, the fans are hopeful that Rohit Sharma can take over the captaincy of the team again.
Why Pandya can miss IPL 2024
Hardik Pandya has been in the news for the last several days due to getting the captaincy. Now a big update regarding him has again intensified the discussion about him. Actually, Hardik Pandya was out of the entire tournament due to injury during the ODI World Cup 2023. Hardik had to be out of the team due to ankle injury. He has not yet fully recovered from that injury. He was last seen in action during the World Cup match against Bangladesh and was injured in the same match.
Hardik was expected to recover before the Afghanistan T20 series, but according to a PTI report, it is difficult for the all-rounder to be a part of both the T20 series and even the IPL. PTI quoted a BCCI source as saying that there is no update on Hardik’s fitness status yet and it is difficult to say when he will be able to make a comeback.
All eyes on Rohit
Hardik was recently appointed captain of the Mumbai Indians team for the IPL, ending Rohit Sharma’s captaincy legacy. After Rohit’s exit from this format, Hardik had also led the Indian team in T20 International. But since he is not fit, Suryakumar Yadav is the captain of India’s T20 team. However, there is a big update on Surya too. He was injured during the T20 match against South Africa. In such a situation, it is being said that Rohit Sharma can once again be seen handling the captaincy of the team.
