Sachin Tendulkar and Mumbai Indians -

Sachin Tendulkar has been associated with the Mumbai Indians since the beginning of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and served as the team's captain in IPL 2011 and 2012, demonstrating his exceptional leadership skills. However, in 2012, Sachin chose to step down as captain and focus solely on his batting skills for the next two seasons. Despite rumors suggesting otherwise, Sachin Tendulkar remains an integral part of the Mumbai Indians franchise and continues to hold the position of the team's icon and mentor.

Fans Outrage -

The decision to appoint Hardik Pandya as the new captain of Mumbai Indians for the IPL 2024 season has sparked rumors that Sachin Tendulkar has left the team due to the captaincy change. This decision was made after Hardik's return to the franchise from the Gujarat Titans, and it has generated significant attention on social media. Some fans have expressed disappointment and anger over the replacement of Rohit Sharma with Hardik Pandya as the team's captain, with a few going to the extent of burning Mumbai Indians' jerseys and caps in protest against the leadership change.

The Truth -

There have been speculations circulating on X (formerly Twitter) about Sachin Tendulkar parting ways with Mumbai Indians following Rohit Sharma's removal as the team captain. But these rumors remain baseless as this news is neither confirmed by the club nor by the legend himself. Various famous personalities confirmed this news about Tendulkar being associated with MI, they hammered the fake news by clarifying on social media.
