Breaking News: Mumbai Indians Considering Release of Star Captain Rohit Sharma



The IPL Auction for the 2024 season is set to take place in Dubai on 19 December, 2023. The upcoming IPL season is scheduled to start from March 23, 2024, and will continue till May 29, 2024.

Following the disappointing World Cup performance, there are rumors circulating on the internet that Rohit Sharma, the star player who led Mumbai Indians to five IPL triumphs, may be released from the franchise.

There is speculation that Hardik Pandya could make a return to Mumbai Indians and be traded for Rohit Sharma to take over the leadership of the franchise.

Under Rohit’s captaincy, Mumbai Indians achieved success in the IPL, winning in 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2020. However, the team’s performance has suffered since the departure of Hardik and other key players.

In 2023, the Rohit Sharma-led side managed to qualify for the playoffs. Considering Rohit Sharma’s track record with Mumbai Indians, it will be a tough decision for the franchise to part ways with one of their best and most experienced players.

Rohit Sharma captained the Indian team for the first time in the 2023 ODI World Cup. His leadership skills and batting abilities helped India reach the finals, but their hopes of winning the trophy on home ground were dashed by Australia in a shocking defeat.

Franchises will convene in Dubai for the IPL Auction on 19 December, 2023, in preparation for the upcoming IPL season.
