Mumbai: It was another disappointing night for the Mumbai Indians as they lost their final match of the season by 18 runs against the Lucknow Super Giants on Friday at the Wankhede Stadium. Despite the defeat, Rohit Sharma’s impressive 68 off 38 balls provided a silver lining. Following his performance, Rohit received a standing ovation from fans, who speculated it might have been his last game for Mumbai Indians at Wankhede.

What really captured the attention of fans on social media was a lengthy conversation between MI owner Nita Ambani and Rohit after the match. Many believe Nita was trying to persuade Rohit to stay with the Mumbai Indians, but there is no audio to confirm their discussion.

Here is the viral clip:

There have been several reports suggesting tension between captain Hardik Pandya and Rohit Sharma. Recently, a video of Rohit talking with Abhishek Nayar went viral, in which Rohit discussed the team’s dressing-room environment and hinted at his future plans with the franchise.

Hardik Pandya admitted that it has been a tough season and acknowledged that it’s too early to pinpoint exactly what went wrong against LSG.

“It’s quite difficult. We did not play good quality cricket, which ultimately cost us the season. In this professional world, we always have to come out and put our best foot forward. But as a group, we failed to play quality or smart cricket. It’s too early to identify specific mistakes. The entire season was problematic. We can consider this game as just another one that went wrong,” Hardik said during the post-match presentation.

The loss certainly stung, but the focus now shifts to the future of key players like Rohit Sharma and how the team will address the challenges they faced this season. Fans and analysts alike are eagerly awaiting more details about the conversations and decisions that will shape the Mumbai Indians’ next steps.
