Rohit Sharma’s Message to Ritika Sajdeh Amid MI Coach’s Comments

Four days after Ritika Sajdeh garnered attention for refuting Mumbai Indians head coach Mark Boucher’s reasoning behind removing Rohit Sharma as the captain, the Indian skipper responded on social media with a post that intensified the controversy surrounding the IPL franchise.

Rohit lost his position as the captain of the Mumbai team in December last year, and Hardik Pandya, who was acquired by the management via a trade with Gujarat Titans in late November, was appointed as the new leader. However, Boucher, speaking on the SmashSports podcast, justified the captaincy change as a purely “cricketing decision,” citing Rohit’s declining performance with the bat in recent IPL seasons.

Not swayed by the reasoning, Rohit’s wife Ritika commented, “So many flaws with this,” on the SmashSports podcast’s Instagram post. In his first response since Ritika’s comment, Rohit shared a photo of his wife on his social media account with the caption: “Always by my side @ritssajdeh.”

Rohit Sharma’s reaction has further ignited the debate, with fans and experts speculating about the simmering tensions within the Mumbai Indians camp. As the IPL season approaches, the controversy surrounding the team’s captaincy remains unresolved, leaving everyone eager to see how the franchise and its players handle this challenging period.
