Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma participated in a funny Twitter exchange with his Indian Premier League (IPL) club, saying that he was not aware of the ‘new faces’ in the team.

After the three-times champions Mumbai Indians told their fans on Twitter to be prepared to welcome new faces in the team, Rohit Sharma started a friendly Twitter banter asking his club why they didn’t inform him about this update.

Mumbai Indians posted from their official Twitter account, “Paltan, an exciting update is heading your way. Prepare yourself to welcome new faces in our team. Stay tuned!”

Rohit Sharma replied on the thread saying, “What do you mean by new faces? Why don’t you guys inform me?” To that, MI pleaded their skipper to shift the conversation to private messages.” An “angry” Rohit replied with a gif, “I’ve checked my DMs. I am fine with these new faces and it’s really cool. But where are my bullets?”

At the service of their captain, MI replied to the thread with another cool gif in which he is shooting bullets. Rohit then took Hardik Pandya’s case asking MI why his hair was on fire. To that, Pandya joined in and said that he is always on fire.

Looks like the defending champions are more than excited for the upcoming season of IPL.
