Something big coming? Akash Ambani drives Rohit Sharma to Wankhede ahead of MI vs RCB clash

A video of Akash Ambani, co-owner of the Mumbai Indians, driving with former skipper Rohit Sharma has gone viral.

Akash Ambani, co-owner of the Mumbai Indians (MI) and son of Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani, was filmed alongside former skipper Rohit Sharma in a viral social media video. The clip shows Rohit in the passenger seat of Ambani’s Bentley Bentayga SUV outside the Wankhede Stadium.

This sighting comes amidst a season of change for the Mumbai Indians. Earlier this year, the team’s management made a surprising decision to remove Rohit Sharma from his captaincy role. The reins were handed over to Hardik Pandya. The new MI skipper was brought back into the team via a trade with the Gujarat Titans.

The move sparked debate among fans, with many questioning the rationale behind removing Rohit, a highly successful captain who led MI to five IPL titles. While the details of the conversation in the video remain unknown, the sighting has fueled speculation online.

The viral video has certainly ignited the cricket fraternity’s curiosity about the future of the MI franchise. Adding another layer to the story, both Akash and Rohit were also spotted having a chat after MI’s league game against Sunrisers Hyderabad earlier this season.

How has Rohit Sharma fared in IPL 2024 so far?

Rohit Sharma’s IPL 2024 is a tale of two sides. Freed from captaincy duties, he’s batting with a strike rate of 171.01, punishing bowlers in the powerplay. However, a half-century remains elusive as he has scored 118 runs in four outings.

While his intent is clear, converting those starts into big scores is crucial for both Rohit and Mumbai’s success. Can he find that consistency when MI hosts the Royal Challengers Bengaluru on Thursday, April 11?
