Sreesanth gives thoughts on Sharma-Pandya controversy

Sharma’s 10-year reign as captain came to an end after he was succeeded by Hardik Pandya.

However, it was a decision that left fans caught off guard.

To add salt to the wound, the Indians have suffered three consecutive defeats in the IPL 2024, leading to fans booing Pandya.

Sreesanth, 41, analyzed the dynamic between Sharma and Pandya within the squad, stating that there is no friction between both parties

According to Sreesanth, not being the team captain will enable Sharma to play more freely.

    “We have seen the God of cricket, the great Sachin Tendulkar play under Mahi bhai (MS Dhoni). We won the World Cup too. A lot of stories are being told about Rohit Sharma playing under new captain Hardik Pandya but Rohit would love to play freely,” Sreesanth told The Times of India

    Without the captaincy burden, Sreesanth said that Sharma will aim fort the Orange Cup — the highest run-getter of the tournament.

    “As far as I know Rohit, he would look to bat freely, without any captaincy burden, and may take the Orange Cap too. He is going to have a great season. He has led Mumbai Indians from the front. But I am sure Rohit is going to lead Mumbai Indians from the back,” added Sreesanth.

    “I would say let’s be ready for the change and accept the change. For whatever franchisee he will play, Rohit is going to be the same. I am sure he must be going through difficult times personally but I am very confident that he will take it in his stride and will come out as a champ. Rohit is going to score heavily this season.”
