According to Cricbuzz, Delhi Capitals or Chennai Super Kings approached Mumbai Indians for Rohit Sharma, but the management of the five-time champions rejected their offer. The outcome has been confirmed by the interested team.

“We would have given anything to trade Rohit Sharma from Mumbai Indians, but our offer was rejected and we are not longer in the race,” the franchise official told Cricbuzz.

Rohit was MI skipper for 10 years and won the five titles. But he hasn’t been able to perform in the last two years and the team also finished last in 2022. It made it to the play-offs in 2023.

Sunil Gavaskar backed Mumbai Indians’ decision to replace Rohit with Hardik. “There are no rights and wrongs. The decision is for the benefit of the team. In the last two years, Rohit’s contribution with the bat hasn’t been satisfactory and the team failed to win the league. They were No. 9 or 10 in 2022 and qualified for the playoffs in 2023,” Gavaskar said on Star Sports.
