However, there were rumours that he left the franchise after Hardik Pandya replaced Rohit Sharma as the captain.

However, the news doesn’t seem to be the case. There is still an emblem with Sachin Tendulkar’s name on the support staff of the Mumbai Indians website. The addition of Hardik’s name and the captain’s tag to the squad was the sole modification done.
