Today Mumbai Indians is playing its last match in IPL 2024. This season has been very bad for Mumbai. The team was out of the playoff race for the first time this season. This season, the performance of current team captain Hardik Pandya and former captain Rohit Sharma has also not been anything special. Although Rohit has scored good runs this season, Hardik has disappointed the team with both bat and ball. Now Team India’s former explosive batsmen Virender Sehwag and Manoj Tiwari have given a big statement about Rohit and Hardik.

Will Rohit-Hardik pair be released?

Before the IPL 2024 auction, Mumbai Indians had appointed Hardik Pandya as the new captain of the team. But the team’s performance deteriorated under Hardik’s captaincy. The team could not even reach the playoffs. Now, former Team India cricketer Manoj Tiwary said on Cricbuzz that in my view, Suryakumar Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah are two players whom Mumbai Indians can retain in the IPL mega auction 2025 and I have this advice for Mumbai as well. I am not keeping Rohit because looking at Rohit it does not seem that he wants to stay. Apart from this, the captain of the team should be made between Surya and Bumrah.

Sehwag gave a special example

Regarding this, Team India’s former explosive opener Virender Sehwag said that there is no guarantee that if Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan are in the same film then the film will be a hit. There should be a good script for this. Similarly, all the big names of Mumbai Indians will have to perform together on the field. We saw that Rohit scored a century against CSK but the team lost the match because the performance of all the players was not that good.

MI proved unsuccessful in season 17

The performance of Mumbai Indians under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya has been very poor in season 17. Out of 13 matches, the team has won only 4 matches. Rohit certainly batted well in the beginning of the season, then the hitman flopped. Captain Hardik Pandya struggled with poor form throughout the season. Additionally, Suryakumar Yadav joined the team at the end of the season. The performance of Team David and Ishan Kishan was also nothing special.
