Ahead of the toss, former India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar asked the Mumbai Indians crowd to welcome the newly appointed Hardik Pandya with applauds however, the crowd resorted to boos and jeering to express their dissatisfaction with Rohit Sharma‘s replacement and Mumbai Indian’s poor start to the season.

Hardik Pandya faces an uphill task in MI vs RR:

Hardik Pandya’s first game as captain of the Mumbai Indians (MI) has not gone well. After completing a surprise transfer to Mumbai for the 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL), Hardik’s MI suffered back-to-back losses. Hardik failed to pass the leadership test against his previous club, as the Gujarat Titans (GT) outperformed the Rohit Sharma-led team in their IPL 2024 debut.

Hardik and his teammates were then outplayed by Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in a match in which the 2016 winners scored the greatest total in IPL history. Hardik’s MI team, known as perpetual sluggish starts in the cash-rich league, has arrived in Mumbai for their first home game of the new season.
