Newly appointed Mumbai Indians captain Hardik Pandya’s equation with the fans is worsening by the day. From the on-field issues to off-field issues, the MI all-rounder is being targeted for every move of his and Mumbai Indians’ sub-par performance in IPL 2024 is adding to his woes with T20 WC selection at stake.

Pandya, who was seen at the Mumbai Aiport after the CSK loss met with a lot of criticism and jeering for his choice of outfit. The MI batter was seen in a very casual, breezy avatar in grey sweat pants and a black tank prompting the fans to call him all sorts of things.

With the T20 World Cup selection looming, Pandya’s resurgence will be closely watched. India’s provisional squad announcement is anticipated in early May. To reclaim his spot in the national team, the all-rounder must improve his bowling consistency and deliver impactful performances with the bat.

It remains to be seen if Pandya can rise to the occasion and revive his form amid mounting pressure and scrutiny.
