How has IPL 2024 been for Hardik Pandya?

Hardik Pandya’s IPL 2024 has been a double-edged sword. On the leadership side, it’s been a challenging start. Taking over the reins of a five-time champion like Mumbai Indians comes with immense pressure. Unfortunately, success hasn’t followed immediately.

MI currently languish in ninth place, with only two wins from their first six games. This has understandably led to criticism from fans. It looks like they haven’t taken kindly to the change in captaincy after Rohit Sharma’s successful reign.

As a a player, he has fired on all cylinders as well. The premier all-rounder has scored 131 runs at a strike rate of 145.56 and at an average of 26.2. With the ball, he has taken four wickets but has leaked runs at an alarming economy rate of 12.00.
