‘Great Timing Admin’- Fans Laud Mumbai Indians’ Admin As He Welcomes Rohit Sharma Moments After Virat Kohli Stepping Down As Indian Captain.
The world cricketing fraternity came under massive shock when Indian skipper Virat Kohli came up with an announcement on Thursday.
Notably, Virat Kohli announced that he will be stepping down as India’s T20I captain after the end of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.
Virat, re-instated that he will continue to lead the Men in Blue in the ODI and the Test format. He also mentioned that he will continue playing for India in the T20 format as a batsman only.
Now, Rohit Sharma’s appointment as the captain of India in the T20 format is nothing but a mere formality.
Mumbai Indians Welcome Rohit Sharma, Fans Laud The Admin For His Timing
Virat came up with the announcement later in the evening on September 16 via a Tweet. A few moments later, Mumbai Indians’ admin on Twitter, came up with a Tweet welcoming Rohit, the MI skipper, out of quarantine.
He took to Twitter and shared a video with the caption, “Dekho 𝐑𝐎 aa gaya!” which means, Rohit Sharma is finally here.
Fans on Twitter couldn’t hold back their emotions as they saw the tweet and found some sarcasm in it.
Reportedly, Virat and Rohit Sharma haven’t been on good terms personally after the ODI World Cup in 2019 and this has certainly created a divide among the fans.
Here are the fan tweets lauding MI admin:

Rohit Is The Front Runner To Lead The Indian T20 Team
Rohit Sharma, the current, Indian vice-captain is clearly the front-runner to captain team India after Virat’s departure as the T20 captain. He has led the Men in Blue in 19 T20Is and has won 15 of those matches.
He has also led team India to the Asia Cup trophy and the Nidahas trophy title in 2018.
As the captain of Mumbai Indians (MI) in the IPL, Rohit Sharma has won 5 IPL titles. He flew to the UAE alongside Suryakumar Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah on September 11 for the remainder of IPL 2021 which is all set to commence from September 19.
The first returning fixture will see Mumbai Indians taking on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the El-Classico of World Cricket.
