Mumbai Indians, the most successful franchise in the long history of the Indian Premier League (IPL), is currently enduring the worst ever season for them as they finds themselves at the rock-bottom in the IPL 2022 League Table.

Captain Rohit Sharma has also looked out of form, not really being able to contribute the way he had been contributing for the team. That led to people even question the batter's future as Mumbai's captain.
With Rohit Sharma now aged 34-years-old, Mumbai Indians would also be looking forward to having a long term plan for their next captain. The headache for which, was made easy by the former Mumbai player Harbhajan Singh.
