IPL 2023: Mumbai Indians to dedicate their game against RR to skipper Rohit Sharma for completing 10 years as captain
Mumbai Indians will now lock horns against Rajasthan Royals (RR) in their next game on Sunday (30th April). It’ll be also their skipper Rohit Sharma’s birthday and they learned that they will dedicate their game to him for completing 10 years as captain.
Rohit Sharma joined Mumbai Indians in 2011 and for two years played as a batter in the team. During the mid-season in 2013, he was handed the captaincy and since then he didn’t look back. He left the mark immediately as he guided his team to the trophy in that year only.
Rohit has made Mumbai Indians the most successful team in the IPL after leading them to a record five titles. After 2013, he won IPL as a skipper in 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2020. Apart from this he also won two champions league as well.

Rohit Sharma would be hoping to set the stage on fire on his birthday and guide his team to the win. If they have to fancy their chances of winning the tournament this year, the skipper has to take responsibility and lead from the front. So far he has scored 181 runs in 7 games.
