Hardik Pandya will not be captaining the T20I series, against Afghanistan while Hardik Pandya will be absent due to an injury. There is speculation that Rohit Sharma might return as the captain in his absence. However, it is expected that Hardik Pandya will recover in time for the 2024 edition of the IPL. In a change of leadership, Rohit Sharma has been replaced by Hardik Pandya as the captain of Mumbai Indians for the 2024 season. This announcement was made on December 16 2023 after Pandya was traded from Gujarat Titans to Mumbai Indians.

This shift in leadership at MI has led to discussions about its impact on the captaincy of the Indian T20I team. Hardik Pandya has already captained India in 13 out of its 25 games. The decision to appoint him as Mumbai Indians captain came as a surprise to some since it meant an end to Rohit Sharma's captaincy reign. Rohit Sharma, who led MI to five IPL titles will now pass on the responsibility to Hardik Pandya for the season, in 2024.
