CLT20: Captaincy conundrum for MI as Rohit Sharma ruled out due to injury

New Delhi: In what was a major blow for Mumbai Indians, skipper Rohit Sharma was ruled out of the forthcoming Champions League Twenty20 as a result of multiple injuries.

Rohit has been diagnosed with a shoulder problem in addition to the fracture to his finger that he sustained during the second ODI against England at Cardiff.

The 27-year-old has led from the front ever since taking charge from Ricky Ponting midway through the 2013 IPL.

The challenge ahead of the Mumbai thinktank is to appoint a new skipper for the team. While Kieron Pollard looks a likely candidate to lead the popular T20 franchise, Harbhajan Singh and Lasith Malinga too are formidable names.

Mumbai Indians will open their CLT20 campaign with a Qualifiers' game against Lahore Lions on September 13.
