IPL Delhi Match Prediction : Sourav Ganguly and Delhi Capitals Express Interest in Trading for Rohit Sharma from Mumbai Indians

Rumors Surrounding Rohit Sharma’s Departure from Mumbai Indians and Alleged Interest from Delhi Capitals

The speculation surrounding Rohit Sharma’s potential departure from the Mumbai Indians has been generating significant buzz on social media, particularly since he was named the new skipper for the upcoming IPL 2023 season. Among the major rumors circulating is the possibility of Rohit joining the Delhi Capitals.

A viral quote attributed to Sourav Ganguly, the mentor of Delhi Capitals, suggests, “Mumbai Indians messed with Rohit Sharma. He made that franchise famous. We are ready to trade Rohit Sharma in our team.” However, India.com has debunked this quote as fake, clarifying that neither Sourav Ganguly nor anyone from the Delhi Capitals’ management has made such a statement. While there were reports of Delhi Capitals approaching Mumbai Indians for a trade during the window, no remarks against the Mumbai-based franchise or a potential trade of the Indian skipper have been officially confirmed.

During the IPL 2024 Auction, a senior Mumbai Indians official confirmed that Rohit Sharma would be staying with the team. The official dismissed the rumors as false, stating, “Rohit is not going anywhere, nor will any player. The news reports are totally fake and false. No MI player will be leaving us, nor will be traded by us.”

The decision to continue with Rohit Sharma was made after consulting every player, including Rohit himself. Despite the end of Rohit’s ten-year captaincy reign, during which Mumbai Indians secured five IPL trophies, the official emphasized that Rohit remains an integral part of the decision-making process.

Rohit Sharma, known for his astute leadership, quick strategic decisions, and impressive win record, captained in 158 IPL matches, winning 87 games with a win percentage of 55.06. While Mumbai Indians bid farewell to Rohit’s captaincy, the franchise had a successful outing at the IPL 2024 Auction, adding notable names like Gerald Coetzee, Dilshan Madushanka, and Mohammad Nabi to their squad, along with promising young talent.

The Mumbai Indians’ IPL 2024 Squad includes Rohit Sharma, Dewald Brevis, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Tilak Varma, Tim David, Vishnu Vinod, Arjun Tendulkar, Shams Mulani, Nehal Wadhera, Jasprit Bumrah, Kumar Kartikeya, Piyush Chawla, Akash Madhwal, Jason Behrendorff, Gerald Coetzee, Dilshan Madushanka, Shreyas Gopal, Nuwan Thushara, Naman Dhir, Anshul Kamboj, Mohammad Nabi, Shivalik Sharma.
