‘If there’s one thing you should know…’: Mumbai Indians skipper Hardik Pandya after defeat to Rajasthan Royals | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Mumbai Indians skipper Hardik Pandya emphasized the team’s resilience amidst a challenging phase in the ongoing IPL. Following the defeat to Rajasthan Royals, the former IPL-winning captain with Gujarat Titans shared a few words of motivation on X, asserting, “If there’s one thing you should know about this team, we never give up. We’ll keep fighting, we’ll keep going.”
Facing criticism from fans following his appointment as captain in place of Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya has encountered hostility from the crowds in recent matches.Despite the adversity, he remains steadfast in his commitment to lead the team through difficult times.

MI’s campaign in the 2024 IPL has suffered a setback with three consecutive losses, placing them at the bottom of the table. However, history suggests that the franchise has often started slowly in previous seasons, only to bounce back strongly, as seen in their title-winning campaign in 2015.

Questions have arisen regarding Hardik’s captaincy decisions, including the handling of key players like Jasprit Bumrah and the batting order, exemplified by sending Tim David ahead of himself in a recent match against Gujarat Titans.

The change in leadership has led to divided sentiments among Mumbai Indians supporters, evident from chants of “Rohit Rohit” echoing at the Wankhede Stadium during the team’s home game.
