Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma is arguably one of the most successful skippers in the Indian Premier League. Ever since he took over the job, Mumbai’s fate changed for the good. They have won four titles under his leadership – the most by any franchise. Recently, during an online chat, Rohit revealed the name of one retired cricketer he wants to bring back in the Mumbai Indians set-up.
Amid the ongoing break due to COVID-19 outbreak, cricketers are attending question-answer sessions on social media to stay connected with the fans. Recently, Rohit Sharma organised one such session where fans bombarded him with questions from all sphere of life.
Rohit name retired cricketer he wants back in Mumbai Indians
“If you could bring one retired MI player back, who would it be?” a fan asked on Twitter.
Rohit Sharma didn’t waste much of a time to name the cricketer. He picked Sachin Tendulkar and Shaun Pollock as the retired cricketers he wants to bring back in the Mumbai Indians set up. Rohit and Tendulkar have worked in close quarters in the IPL taking Mumbai cricket forward.
“I would actually pick two cricketers; Sachin Tendulkar and Shaun Pollock. I would like to want them back in the Mumbai Indians team,” Rohit Sharma said.

Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar was quick to respond to Rohit Sharma. The former India cricketer said that he would love to open with Rohit Sharma. It would have made a great pair if Tendulkar and Rohit opened and would give nightmares to the bowlers.
“Would be fun to open with you @ImRo45,” Sachin Tendulkar responded.
Would be fun to open with you @ImRo45. 😊
