Power Struggle at MI: Team is divided into Rohit vs Hardik group

Reportedly, Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya are having some power struggle in the MI team

Mumbai Indians are struggling badly at the start of IPL 2024. They've lost their first two matches against the Gujarat Titans and Sunrisers Hyderabad.

The team failed to chase down a competitive total of 169 in their season's opener against Gujarat Titans, and following that, in the second match, SRH put on a record 277 runs in front of them. While they showed the intent to touch the unprecedented but eventually MI lost the contest by 31 runs. After two consecutive losses a striking report has emerged stating all is not well in the Mumbai camp.

There are 2 sides in the Mumbai Indians team currently.

  • Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Tilak Verma and others.
  • Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan and others.
  • Hardik has the backing from the owners.

Why Mumbai Indians is drifting in two different groups between players

Hardik Pandya's success with Gujarat Titans didn't translate to his new role as Mumbai Indians captain. His appointment, replacing legend Rohit Sharma, ignited a firestorm of fan backlash. Pandya faced jeers and "boos" in his first two matches, with crowds chanting Rohit's name. More disturbingly, reports of violence against Pandya's supporters have emerged. Could this fan unrest and potential team division be behind Mumbai's dismal start?

MI squad divided between Hardik and Rohit camp

Pandya's appointment and Rohit's sacking have not only divided fans, but the tensions have permeated the Mumbai Indians dressing room as well. According to a Dainik Jagran report, the MI squad is being split between Hardik and Rohit camp. The report went on to claim that players like, Jasprit Bumrah, Suryakumar Yadav, and Tilak Varma have sided with Rohit, whereas Ishan Kishan is in the opposite group.

Though the report might be an assertion, considering what has transpired on the field, with multiple instances of both players engaging in acrimonious demeanors, it could be gauged all is indeed not well in the Mumbai Indians camp.
