Why was Rohit Sharma against the selection of Hardik Pandya in T20 WC 2024?

Mumbai Indians (MI)’s IPL 2024 hopes have ended disappointingly. The team under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya became the first team to be eliminated from the tournament this season. The team’s performance was poor and an atmosphere of disappointment was seen among their fans and management.

This dissatisfaction increased further in the camp of Mumbai Indians when Rohit Sharma was removed from the captaincy even before the beginning of the season.

There are four players in the Mumbai Indians camp who will play for the Indian team in the 2024 T20 World Cup: captain Rohit Sharma, vice-captain Hardik Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah. These four players are important pillars of the Indian team and there are high expectations from them that they will lead the team to success in the upcoming World Cup. The Indian team’s first match will be against Ireland, which will begin the team’s World Cup journey.

Hardik Pandya’s selection and controversy

Recently a report has surfaced claiming that some BCCI selectors, especially captain Rohit Sharma and chief selector Ajit Agarkar, were not in favor of Hardik Pandya’s inclusion in the T20 World Cup squad. The controversy started when Hardik’s IPL performance was not up to the expected level. However, he scored 200 runs in 13 games at a strike-rate of 144.93 and took 11 wickets at an economy of 10.59.

According to the report, Hardik was included in the T20 World Cup squad ‘under pressure’. Sources also say that Rohit Sharma may say goodbye to this format after the T20 World Cup, due to which there is a possibility of major changes in the team.

Press conference and Agarkar’s statement

In a press conference after the announcement of the T20 World Cup squad, when chief selector Ajit Agarkar was questioned on the selection of Hardik Pandya, he informed that there is no alternative to Hardik in the current talent pool. Agarkar said that Hardik has been selected because of his experience and versatile ability. He admitted that Hardik’s form was a matter of concern, but the selection committee had no other option available at this time.

Everyone will have their eyes on the performance of the Indian team in the upcoming T20 World Cup. There will be special pressure especially on Hardik Pandya, whose selection has been so controversial. The team management and selectors hope that Hardik will play an important role in helping the team win by using his experience and talent properly.

There is also a question mark over the future of Rohit Sharma. If he retires from the T20 format, the Indian team will need a new captain. In this situation, Hardik Pandya can be considered as the future captain, but it will depend on his present form and performance.
