Did Delhi Capitals approach Mumbai Indians for Rohit Sharma?

In IPL 2024, Delhi Capitals wanted a senior player to lead their team. As soon as it came to light that Mumbai Indians had expressed their desire to include Hardik Pandya, Delhi Capitals approached Mumbai Indians for Rohit Sharma. Delhi Capitals wanted to add Rohit Sharma through trade, but this was not possible. You should also know the reason behind this.

Actually, the deal between Delhi Capitals and Rohit Sharma could not be done because there is a contract between Rohit Sharma and Mumbai Indians, due to which he was not available for trade. Sports Today has reported that Delhi Capitals had decided to hand over the captaincy to Rishabh Pant with the aim of making him an impact player. However, when their deal with Rohit did not work out, they had to choose Rishabh Pant as the captain.

Now Hardik Pandya will be the new captain of MI

Whereas, if we talk about Rohit Sharma, he has been removed from the captaincy by Mumbai Indians. He will be seen playing for the team only as a player. Rohit Sharma will play under the captaincy of Hardi Pandya in IPL 2024. Mumbai has taken Hardik in trade from Gujarat Titans. He was the captain of the Gujarat team in the last two seasons and he returned to Mumbai on the condition that he would get the captaincy. Mumbai Indians have officially made Hardik their captain.

Let us tell you that Hardik Pandya's return to Mumbai was possible because Mumbai Indians have given Cameron Green to RCB in trade. This was the reason why Mumbai Indians could add this expensive player, because they had bought Cameron Green for Rs 17.5 crores. If he was handed over to RCB, then this much amount was left in his purse, with which he can give money to Hardik Pandya. MI also had to pay some transfer fees.
