Five-time champions Mumbai Indians have had one of the worst IPL seasons this year since the inception of the tournament. The Hardik Pandya-led team is already out of the race for the playoffs. Right from the beginning, when Hardik Pandya was made the captain, things went wrong for the team. Meanwhile, former Indian cricket team star Virender Sehwag has given an interesting advice to the MI management ahead of the IPL 2025 mega-auction. He picked two names who should be top priority for MI to retain. And this is not Hardik Pandya and Rohit Sharma.

“If you get Shahrukh Khan, Aamir Khan and Salman Khan for a film, it doesn't mean it will be a hit. You have to perform. There has to be something in the script. Look at these big names… They all have to perform. Rohit scored a century and it led to the defeat. In the remaining matches, Ishan Kishan has not been able to carry on in the powerplay throughout the season, so we will see,” Sehwag said. said on Cricbuzz.

Manoj Tiwari, who was part of the panel along with Sehwag, said, “I don't think Rohit Sharma wants to retain himself.” On this the anchor said jokingly, 'I think someone has seen the viral video.'

The discussion then turned towards a video related to Rohit Sharma and KKR assistant coach Abhishek Nair. In the video, Rohit and Nair can be heard talking about 'changing things'. At the end of the video, the former Mumbai Indians captain also said that “this is his last”. Although the context of the conversation is not known, fans suggested that the two should have talked about the current situation of Mumbai Indians, especially the appointment of Hardik Pandya as captain.

“Every single thing is changing…it is up to them…whatever is there is my house brother, that temple is there, I have built it.” Whatever it may be, but this is my house brother, this is that. There is a temple which I have built).”

The last line that could be heard in the video was: “Bhai mera kya mera to ye aakhri hai.”

The video has been removed by KKR from its handle but has gone viral.
