Mumbai Indian captain Rohit Sharma gave his best wishes to his former teammate Hardik Pandya for his new role as the captain of the Gujarat Titans in the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League 2022.

Rohit appreciated Hardik, saying that the he had a great impact and played a big role in Mumbai Indians’ success, but it will be a different challenge for him to be captain of another franchise.

“Hardik Pandya’s contribution can’t be ignored by Mumbai Indians. He did the job perfectly for us. He’s now the captain of one of the IPL franchises, best wishes to him,” Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma said in a virtual press conference.
