On his recent Instagram story, Jasprit Bumrah wrote “Silence is sometimes the best answer” which instantly ignited multiple questions in the minds of the cricket fans especially the Mumbai Indians team franchise supporters if everything is alright between Bumrah and Mumbai Indians team management. Since the trade window is still open till the IPL auction, some were even worried that Bumrah would decide to leave Mumbai Indians and join some other team ahead of IPL 2024.

Look how the fans reacted-
I mean Bumrah doesn't look like someone who cares for captaincy. The guy is a gem. So this story is not related to news of him not getting captaincy, he is just hurt after the world Cup loses.

Bumrah is not happy it seems. Captaincy?
Hardik Pandya came, SKY is also there
When Deepak Chahar gone for 14Cr he laughed and he might have gone for higher price if MI released him instead of Hardik Pandya in that auction
