PTC News Desk: Ahead of the highly anticipated clash between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at Mumbai's iconic Wankhede Stadium on April 14, Sunday, Rohit Sharma, the skipper of MI, took on an unconventional role – that of the team's bus driver. As the MI squad arrived from their practice session at the team hotel, Rohit Sharma seized the opportunity to entertain his teammates and fans alike.

In a heartwarming viral video, Rohit Sharma is seen assuming the driver's seat of the MI team bus, much to the delight of onlooking fans. The sight of their beloved captain behind the wheel sent fans into a frenzy, with cheers and applause echoing as Rohit navigated the bus. Amidst the excitement, Rohit's teammates couldn't contain their laughter, thoroughly enjoying the lighthearted moment. Capturing the camaraderie on video, Rohit Sharma immortalized the memorable occasion on his phone.

Interestingly, Rohit Sharma had arrived at the Wankhede Stadium earlier in his luxurious Range Rover, adorned with a special number plate – "0264," a nod to his monumental achievement of scoring 264 runs, the highest-ever individual score in One Day International (ODI) cricket. This historic feat was achieved during Rohit's stellar double century innings against Sri Lanka at the Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata.

Accompanying Rohit Sharma was Akash Ambani, the co-owner of the MI franchise. The duo indulged in a leisurely drive around the streets of Mumbai, with Akash taking the wheel of the opulent car, while Rohit enjoyed the ride as a passenger.

Despite the luxury at his disposal, Rohit Sharma's choice to take charge of the team bus reflects the spirited atmosphere within the MI camp ahead of their crucial encounter against CSK. With the stage set for a riveting showdown between the two powerhouse teams, dubbed as the "El Clasico" of the Indian Premier League (IPL), fans can expect an electrifying contest as MI, led by Rohit Sharma, takes on MS Dhoni's CSK.

Notably, this season marks a historic moment as both MI and CSK have witnessed changes in leadership, with Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni assuming captaincy roles for their respective franchises. As the two cricketing giants prepare to face each other on the field, fans eagerly anticipate witnessing the clash of titans between Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni, a spectacle that promises to be a highlight of the IPL season.
