Rohit Sharma Will Play For MS Dhoni In The IPL 2024? CEO Of CSK Makes A Significant Assertion

The IPL 2024 auction was held in Dubai on Tuesday, December 19, and as of right now, the tournament’s planning is on its way. It is slated to take place in March or May. But in the midst of all of this planning, the Mumbai Indians’ five-time winning skipper, Rohit Sharma, is stirring up a lot of conversation.

Hardik Pandya, the Mumbai Indians’ new captain, took Rohit’s place. As a result, it is now unclear whether Rohit would quit the Mumbai squad during the trade window. While all of this is going on, some supporters and media publications have speculated that Rohit would sign a trade window deal to join the Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

The MS Dhoni-led CSK, however, has brushed off any such rumors. During the auction, Kashi Vishwanathan, the franchise’s CEO, said that Rohit Sharma would not be joining their squad.

“We don’t trade players as a principle and we don’t have players to trade with Mumbai Indians,” Vishwanathan said. He was reported by Cricbuzz as saying, “We haven’t approached them and we don’t intend to either,” during the IPL auction.

He emphasized that the Chennai club is trying to develop with its current MI players and rejected media claims as unfounded.

Additionally, a Mumbai Indians official referred to the rumors that Suryakumar Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, and Rohit Sharma were quitting the squad as unfounded rumors.

In addition, the official said that all players, including Rohit, gave their consent before Hardik Pandya was named captain. Consequently, all other conjectures are baseless. All participants have agreed with this choice.

Over the last two IPL seasons, Rohit Sharma, who captained Mumbai in 2013 and guided them to five IPL championships, has seen his form deteriorate. Rohit participated in 16 IPL games in 2023, amassing 332 runs with a strike rate of 132.80 and an average of 20.75. Likewise, in 2022, he amassed 268 runs in 14 games with a strike rate of 120.18 and an average of 19.14. Rohit’s average has significantly declined, which raises questions about how well he will play in the next several seasons.
