Pandya was not present for the home series of five T20 internationals against Australia, nor for the three ODI and three T20I matches that made up the journey to South Africa. In Pandya’s absence, top-ranked T20I batsman Suryakumar Yadav donned the role of captain.

With players like Tilak Verma, Nehal Wadhera, Akash Madhwal, and Piyush Chawla, Pandya is in charge of a superstar-studded lineup. With Pandya leading the team, these players will play for MI.

However, Rohit Sharma will be captaining the team in the upcoming T20 World Cup, which is scheduled to take place in the USA and the West Indies in June, with the intention of putting an end to India’s ICC trophy drought.

Meanwhile, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah earlier announced that Rohit Sharma will lead the Men in Blue in the ICC T20 World Cup.
