<p>The Mumbai Indians, an IPL team, have released a video showing their new captain Hardik Pandya giving a hearty embrace to his former skipper, Rohit Sharma, during a Wankhede Stadium pre-season training.</p>

<p>With Pandya’s selection, Rohit’s very successful tenure as MI captain came to an end. The team is hopeful that Pandya’s Midas touch will help them win a record-tying sixth IPL championship, having last won the trophy in 2020.</p>
<p>In the video, MI coach Mark Boucher is seen supervising the training session as Pandya approaches Rohit and the two greet each other.</p>
<p>Pandya had denied rumors earlier in the week that he and former captain Rohit would not get along.</p>
<p>“It helps because I play under Rohit Sharma, the captain of the Indian team. I know he will always be there to support me, and I simply continue on from what he has accomplished with this squad. It wouldn’t seem strange or unusual, in my opinion,” Pandya said on Monday.</p>
<p>After being selected as MI’s captain in 2013, Rohit led the team to five IPL championships.</p>
<p>But after their last good season in 2020, MI had a string of disappointing seasons, culminating in its first-ever bottom-of-the-table result in 2022.</p>

<p>However, Pandya moved from MI to the Gujarat Titans before the team’s 2022 IPL debut, and he is well-known for leading them to a championship.</p>
<p>In order to demonstrate that the outcome wasn’t a fluke, Pandya managed GT to another fantastic season in which they advanced to the second consecutive final but lost to the Chennai Super Kings in the end.</p>
<p>The 30-year-old Pandya hasn’t played since his participation in the 2023 ODI World Cup was cut short due to an unusual injury sustained during a match.</p>
<p>It was an unusual wound. My ankle felt and looked like a typical ache when I twisted it. The next day, I went directly to the National Cricket Academy to begin the procedure after getting a scan. I pushed myself to be back on the squad at that time, but I ended up making my injuries worse,” Hardik added.</p>
<p>Pandya also said that he was fully fit again in January.</p>
<p>MI’s IPL 2024 campaign will kick off in Ahmedabad on March 24 when they take on GT.</p>
