Boucher stated that the decision was made to free Rohit Sharma from Captaincy to enjoy his batting in the upcoming seasons.

“I think it was purely a cricketing decision. We saw the window period to get Hardik back as a player. For me, it’s a transition phase. A lot of people don’t understand in India, people get quite emotional, but you know you take the emotions away from it.

I think it’s just more of a cricketing decision that was made and I do think it is going to bring the best out of Rohit as a person as a player. Just let him go out and enjoy and score some good runs,” Mark Boucher said on a podcast.

Rohit scored 268 at a strike rate of 120.18 in 2022 when his team finished bottom of the table. In IPL 2023, he did better with 332 runs at 132.80, and his team lost in the second qualifier.

Under Rohit’s captaincy, Mumbai Indians managed to qualify for the IPL 2023 playoff but failed to beat Gujarat Titans in the Qualifier 2.
