“So many things wrong with this,” cryptic response emerges from Rohit Sharma’s wife amid Mumbai Indians captaincy controversy

After Mumbai Indians coach Mark Boucher explained in a podcast why the franchise decided to elevate Hardik Pandya to team captaincy over longtime skipper Rohit Sharma, a cryptic comment from Rohit’s wife, Ritika Sajdeh, on Instagram has emerged.

Ritika responded to a clip on Instagram of Boucher offering his explanation for why the think tank chose to replace Rohit with Pandya, who led the Gujarat Titans to an IPL title in the first season and to the final in the second year.

“So many things wrong with this,” wrote Ritika as a comment to the clip.

In the clip, Boucher discussed the decision, emphasizing that it was a cricketing one and aimed at allowing Rohit to focus on his batting performance without the added pressure of captaincy.

Boucher’s comments suggested that the burden of captaincy might have been affecting Rohit’s batting form in recent seasons.

He highlighted Rohit’s leadership qualities but suggested that stepping down from the captaincy could potentially bring out the best in Rohit as a player.

The emergence of Ritika’s cryptic comment adds another layer to the ongoing controversy surrounding Mumbai Indians’ leadership transition.
