Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma is likely to miss a few games for MI in IPL 2023 in order to manage his workload. Hence, MI will need someone to take over the leadership duties.
Here are 3 players who could lead Mumbai Indians if Rohit misses a few games:
1. Suryakumar Yadav
Suryakumar Yadav is the front-runner to take over MI’s captaincy if Rohit misses a few games as he is not a senior player of the team and has done very well at the international level. Recently, SKY was also picked as the vice-captain of the Indian Cricket Team.
2. Ishan Kishan
Ishan Kishan has been an important member of the Mumbai Indians for a few years now and he is someone whom the management really believes in. Kishan earlier led India to the ICC U-19 World Cup final in 2016, making him one of the strongest contenders to lead the Mumbai Indians.
3. Tim David
Having played 160 games, Tim David has enormous experience of T20 Cricket. He has played in T20 leagues all around the globe and knows how things work. Mumbai Indians may make use of his observations and experiences.
