Before IPL 2024, Mumbai Indians snatched the captaincy from Rohit Sharma and handed it over to Hardik Pandya. Many questions were raised regarding this. Many veterans raised their voices against this while some justified this decision. At the same time, some players also protested against making Hardik Pandya the captain through gestures. Under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, Mumbai Indians have won the Indian Premier League title five times. At the same time, now the team's head coach Mark Boucher has made a big revelation in this matter.
Mumbai Indians head coach Mark Boucher said in an interview that this decision was taken for better cricket because the team is in a period of change. Boucher said on the Smash Sports podcast that we saw the window period for Hardik Pandya's return. This is a phase of change. In India, people become very emotional about cricket. I think this is a cricket-related decision only. This will bring out the best in Rohit Sharma as a player.
Boucher further said that one thing I have understood about Rohit is that he is a wonderful person. Rohit has been captaining MI for a long time. He has performed brilliantly for Mumbai Indians. But, he has been very busy and in the last few seasons, perhaps the best has not come from Rohit's bat, but he has done a great job as a captain.
At the same time, on making Hardik Pandya the new captain, Mark Boucher said that he belongs to Mumbai Indians. From there he went to another franchise and made the team win the title in the very first year. Then he was runner-up in the second year. He has shown that he has amazing captaincy skills.
