After eleven seasons and the team's ascent to the top of the IPL standings, the Mumbai Indians declared the end of Rohit Sharma's captaincy reign. Following Hardik Pandya's high-profile move from Gujarat Titans, the decision was made. Ritika Sajdeh, the spouse of Rohit Sharma, expressed her feelings on social media as soon as the news spread. It's interesting that the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), the Mumbai Indians' enduring rivals, posted anything in response to her initial statement.
Ritika was prompted to respond to CSK's Instagram post honouring Rohit Sharma's ten-year captainship. '2013–2023: A decade of passionate challenge! CSK said in their post. Much obliged, Rohit.' The colour yellow, which is associated with the Chennai Super Kings, was Ritika's response. The rumours of a possible CSK affiliation or a reference to the long-standing rivalry between the two teams were stoked by this subdued gesture.
On their official social media accounts, the Mumbai Indians wished Rohit Sharma a very fond goodbye. In addition to mentioning the six trophies and ten years of steadfast dedication, the article emphasized Rohit's leadership path. The team appreciated Rohit for his outstanding leadership in Blue & Gold since 2013.
In a moving homage video, the Chennai Super Kings honoured Rohit Sharma's legacy as a captain. The movie highlighted significant events during his time while highlighting the fierce obstacles the Mumbai Indians had to overcome. Ritika responded to this heartfelt homage with a yellow love emoji, which again raised questions regarding the surprising relationship that the Sajdeh-Sharma team had with CSK.
