Rohit Sharma's unfiltered chat with KKR coach breaks internet

Mumbai Indians had a forgettable IPL 2024. A few months before the start of the season, the franchise found itself in controversy after Hardik Pandya was named the new captain and five-time champion Rohit Sharma was replaced. The team's own fans were also unhappy with this move and booed Hardik in a few games at the start of the season. The reaction to Hardik was similar at other stadiums too: MI faced the anger of their fans for unceremoniously sacking Rohit as captain. As a result, MI failed to develop as a unit and performed poorly as they became the first team to be eliminated from the play-off race earlier this week. But if you thought this was the end of MI's campaign this season, you were completely wrong. Ahead of the game against Kolkata Knight Riders, a video went viral featuring Rohit Sharma and KKR assistant coach Abhishek Nayyar expressing his displeasure over Mumbai Indians' performance in the last few months.

Although Rohit did not reveal the name of his franchise, his words seemed to indicate that he was talking about MI. “Ek ek chiz chang ho raha hai... (everything changes little by little)”. Rohit is heard saying to Nayar while fans keep shouting, "Oh Opar hai, the main dates depend on them, I don't care." Rohit also said to Nayar, "Jo bhi hai var mera ghar hai beh, temple jang jo hai na main banwai hai.” Actually, it was the Mumbai Indians he was talking about. A fan also claimed to have heard Rohit. At the end of the chat, Rohit said: He says, "Bhai mera kiya, mera tak akher hai (this is the last time anyway)." However, according to reports earlier this week, there were also a number of senior MI players including Rohit, Jasprit Bumrah and Suryakumar Yadav spoke about the reasons behind the team's poor performance this season. Some selected players were also given one-on-one meetings with the MI leadership to discuss possible changes in the franchise's strategy and approach going forward.
