MI vs LSG: Strong Wall Forms Between Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya; All Indian Players Leave the Captain Alone

In a recent development, it was revealed that the Mumbai Indians The camp was divided into two groups: Rohit Sharma and captain Hardik Pandya.

This huge update came just 24 hours before the Mumbai Indians final IPL League game 2024 against Lucknow Super Giants. MI have already been eliminated from the tournament and tomorrow’s game will give them the chance to spoil the party for LSG on the points table. But the news about Hardik Pandya’s team’s camp division comes as a major setback in the final days of the season.

Local players are on Rohit Sharma’s side while foreigners are on Hardik Pandya’s side

Reports from our trusted sources suggest that there is a lot of indifference growing within the MI camp, which is sure to end up in the bottom half. As they struggled to win games regularly throughout the season, instead of standing strong as a unit, the MI players became divided. Half the players parted ways with Rohit and the rest joined forces for Hardik Pandya.

According to reports, most of the local senior and junior players want Rohit Sharma to be made captain of Mumbai again in IPL 2025. Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma and Akash Madhwal are among some notable names who are frustrated with the captaincy tactics of Hardik Pandya, whose decision to leave the Gujarat Titans is proving to be very costly.

Reports of a possible fight between Tilak Varma and Hardik Pandya in the dressing room also emerged. If these reports are anything but true, it will be a major headache for the management of the MI team led by head coach Mark Boucher.

But while the Indian players have sided with Rohit Sharma, the foreign recruits have sided with their captain Hardik Pandya. Although there aren’t too many big foreign names in the team, they want Pandya to continue leading the way. Tim David, Dewald Brevis and Luke Wood, among others, have expressed their support for the all-rounder.

Tim David had described Hardik Pandya as the glue that held the Mumbai Indians team together despite the off-season in the IPL 2024. The Australian had also claimed that it was Pandya who told the players to act freely and play with freedom in the end stages of the league.

“Hardik was the glue that held us together and gave us the chance to play with freedom in defense. Hardik was phenomenal in the way he played for the team.” – David had told media reporters.

Local players were even reluctant to train with Pandya

The same source also stated that players like Surya and Tilak are the two names who are not at all willing to train with Hardik Pandya by their side. During a nets session for MI’s previous game at Eden Gardens, both batsmen could be seen leaving the nets as soon as Pandya arrived.

The same goes for Rohit Sharma as he has rarely trained with Pandya this season. In such a case, MI management must find a way to resolve the matter. It will also be a headache for the Indian team as Rohit and Pandya will be the captain and vice-captain of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. What happens next remains to be seen.
