Newly appointed Mumbai Indians skipper Hardik Pandya is likely to miss the IPL 2024 due to injury.

According to reports, Hardik, who was bought by Mumbai Indians in an all cash deal ahead of the IPL 2024 season from Gujarat Titans is suffering from an ankle injury that might see the all-rounder skip the season as well.

Hardik had picked up the injury during Team India’s ODI World Cup match against Bangladesh and has been out of action since then.

Hardik’s absence could come to the delight of many Mumbai fans who wanted their former captain Rohit Sharma to be given the captaincy again after he was replaced by Hardik.

With the news of Rohit Sharma being replaced as captain causing a social media stir, fans started to use hashtags like #BoycottSlice, #RohitLeaveMI etc. in order to show their disappointment with the decision.

However, reports had earlier suggested that the Team India skipper was already informed about the change and had reportedly agreed to play under his Indian teammate in the Indian Premier League.

Hardik Pandya had been brought back to his old team Mumbai Indians after he successfully led his Gujarat Titans team to their maiden IPL title in the sides’ first season itself. He also led the team which finished as runner-ups last year after losing to MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings.

Rohit Sharma has led Mumbai Indians to 5 IPL titles so far and could be seen leading the team once again in IPL 2024.
