Reports suggest Delhi Capitals aimed to trade for Rohit Sharma in IPL 2024, yet Mumbai Indians rejected the proposal, while Sports Today notes DC’s pursuit for a veteran leader.

With the IPL 2024 auction approaching, the cricketing world buzzes with franchise activities. The recent headline-making move revolved around Hardik Pandya taking the reins as Mumbai Indians’ captain, stepping into the shoes of Rohit Sharma. Pandya returned to MI after two years, swapping with Gujarat Titans. To facilitate Hardik’s return, MI traded all-rounder Cameron Green to Royal Challengers Bangalore in a whopping INR 17.50 crore all-cash deal.

After rejoining his former team, Pandya took over captaincy from Rohit, who secured Mumbai Indians’ five IPL titles during his 11-year captaincy. However, recent reports from Sports Today suggest that Delhi Capitals sought to trade for Rohit, aiming for an experienced leader, considering regular skipper Rishabh Pant’s status as an Impact Player. Despite Delhi’s offer, MI declined. According to the reports, the trade fell through due to the three-year contract inked by the Indian skipper with the Mumbai Indians.

With one century and 42 half-centuries, he holds the second-highest tally of sixes in tournament history at 257.
