Five-time champions Mumbai Indians recorded their worst-ever performance in an Indian Premier League (IPL) edition in 2024. The Hardik Pandya led team finished at the bottom of the table with just four wins in 14 matches.

While Pandya’s captaincy will be in focus as the franchise looks ahead to the mega auction for the 2025 IPL season, the major question revolves around the future of veteran batsman Rohit Sharma in MI colours.

Discussions around Rohit’s potential exit from Mumbai Indians began when he was shockingly removed from captaincy ahead of IPL 2024. Subsequently, MI named Hardik as his replacement. Moreover, making things worse, reports claimed that all was not well between Hardik and Rohit in the dressing room.

Rohit added fuel to the discussions after he shared a no-word post on Mumbai Indians. It only had four pictures - MI fans, him at the training nets, one where he is signing autographs at the Wankhede and one with the entire squad. The caption only had an emoticon of a blue heart.

In response to Rohit’s tweet, several fans have flooded the comment box about their predictions.

“The last walk in Mumbai Indians jersey..,” wrote a fan on social media account X (earlier known as Twitter).

“@ImRo45 I know you are emotional and hurt too, but self respect should be above anything, so the temple you have built is already destroyed and let it be, next year you will build a new temple at a new place,” another fan tweeted.

Responding to the post, a third user commented, “What we should understand from this post?...R u leaving or staying?”
