In a Friday statement, Mumbai Indians announced the leadership change as a strategic move for future planning, expressing gratitude to Rohit for his outstanding service to the franchise.

Under Rohit’s captaincy, Mumbai Indians secured titles in 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2020, with a playoff appearance in IPL 2023. Mahela Jayawardene, MI’s Global Head of Performance, expressed gratitude, acknowledging Rohit Sharma’s exceptional leadership. Since 2013, Rohit’s tenure as Mumbai Indians’ captain has been nothing short of extraordinary. He said-

“We express our gratitude to Rohit Sharma for his exceptional leadership; his tenure as the captain of the Mumbai Indians since 2013 has been nothing short of extraordinary.”

Intriguingly, Rohit and Virat Kohli have not featured for India in the T20 format since the World Cup semifinal exit in Australia last year.
