Addressing the media at a Mumbai Indians pre-season press conference, Rohit Sharma was asked to share his views about MS Dhoni’s retirement rumours.

“I’ve been hearing for the last 2-3 years that this is going to be MS Dhoni’s last season. I think he is fit enough to play a few more seasons,” Rohit told the reporter during the press conference.

Rohit Sharma also admitted that their speedster Jasprit Bumrah will be a big miss for Mumbai Indians in the upcoming season of the cash-rich league as well. Recovering from a back injury, Bumrah is ruled out of the entire IPL 2023. He had also missed the Asia Cup and T20 World Cup due to a back injury last year. However, in the absence of pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah, England pace bowler Jofra Archer is all set to lead the pace attack of Rohit’s Mumbai Indians at the IPL 2023 as well.

“He (Bumrah) is a big miss. But it’s an opportunity for the youngsters in the team.I don’t want to put too much pressure on the youngsters. Leading up to the first game, guys know what their role is, the last thing we want to do is put pressure on them. For guys who haven’t played the IPL before, there are quite a few guys, and if they get an opportunity, I would love to keep it simple for them,” Rohit Sharma concluded.
