The continuation process for the Indian Premier League 2024 is over. All 10 teams negotiated well for players. Before the upcoming season, the franchise released some players from the team, retained some and had many players traded. The biggest name among the sold players is Hardik Pandya. Hardik was joined by Mumbai Indians from Gujarat Titans. Hardik was sold in Mumbai for all in cash. With this trade of Hardik Pandya, Mumbai Indians fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah also came into limelight. In fact, Mumbai Indians are looking for an upcoming captain as an alternative to Rohit Sharma. Jasprit Bumrah’s name was also included in the race for the captaincy, but with Hardik’s arrival, the chances were slim. When Hardik went from Mumbai to Gujarat Titans, he was the captain there. Hardik’s performance as captain was strong and the team became the champion in the debut season itself. Apart from this, the team reached the finals last season as well. In such a situation, keeping in mind Hardik’s record, he was the first choice of Mumbai Indians as the captain.
On the other hand, Bumrah has been with Mumbai Indians since his IPL debut. He gave his all for this team and continues to stay with the team. If anyone follows Rohit in the current team, Bumrah is a strong contender for the captaincy, but now it is not very likely that he will get the command of the team.
Although Jasprit Bumrah has not said anything about this process, he certainly expressed his grief in a cryptic message on social media.
