Rumor Control: The Truth Behind Sachin Tendulkar’s Role with MI after Rohit Sharma’s Captaincy Change



Sachin Tendulkar’s association with Mumbai Indians dates back to the inception of the IPL, where he led the team in IPL 2011 and 2012. Mumbai Indians made a significant decision ahead of the IPL 2024 mini-auction by appointing Hardik Pandya as their new captain. Hardik took over from Rohit Sharma, who had been leading the team since 2013. However, rumors claimed that Sachin Tendulkar had left Mumbai Indians due to the captaincy change. These rumors are false, as Sachin Tendulkar remains associated with Mumbai Indians as their icon. Sachin has been associated with the Mumbai Indians since the inception of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and remains loyal to the team. He served as the captain of MI from IPL 2011 to 2012. Following his retirement from international cricket, Sachin assumed the role of MI’s icon, starting from IPL 2014. It is important to note that Sachin’s role as the team’s icon is a part-time commitment, and he does not travel for every game. Interestingly, Sachin’s son, Arjun Tendulkar, has been retained by MI for IPL 2024.
