Indian cricket team captain Rohit Sharma revealed that he does not keep up with his Mumbai Indians teammates during home matches in the ongoing IPL 2024. During a recent conversation, Rohit said that he stays at home when there is a match at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium. And whenever there is a team meeting, he reaches an hour before. Otherwise, he revealed that he is spending time with his family and commuting from his home to the ground. “I'm actually staying at home. The last four matches that Mumbai Indians played here (Wankhede), I was at home. I'm just going an hour early when we have a team meeting. It's been good, a little Different but good,” Rohit said on the Club Prairie FirePodcast.

Earlier, Rohit also spoke about the influence rule in the IPL and how he believes it can affect the young all-rounders in a negative way.

“I really feel it will hinder the development of all-rounders because ultimately cricket is played by 11 players, not 12. So I'm not a big fan of the impact player rule because you're taking too much out of the game.” To make it a little more entertaining for people around me, but in the cricket aspect of it, I think guys like Washington Sundar and Shivam Dubey are not getting a chance to bowl, which is important for us (India). It is not a good thing. “I'm not sure what you can do about it, but I'm not a fan of it,” Rohit said on the Club Prairie Fire podcast.

“It's entertaining though, because there are 12 players to select from and whoever that impact player is, he can see how the game is going and change it depending on what you need, and how the pitch is behaving. If you bat well and don't lose too many wickets, you can add a bowler, giving you the option of having 6-7 bowlers, you don't need that extra batsman because there are a lot of wickets up front. Teams are batting well and you rarely see No. 7 or No. 8 coming in to bat,” the right-handed batsman added.
