The jeers continue for Hardik

Pat Cummins speaks

Looks like a good wicket. Not too upset. It’s a tough tournament, the crowd and conditions will help. A couple of changes. Head comes in for Jansen. Natarajan has a niggle, Unadkat comes in. We got a great squad, the players playing tonight got to give their everything.

Hardik Pandya speaks

We are going to bowl first. Looks like a good track, we were solid in the last game. Didn’t plan properly, that cost us the game. 13 games to go, we need to keep doing the right things. We are positive and looking forward to the challenge. Just trying to spend time with all the players. Getting to know them better. One change, Luke misses out, Maphaka comes in.

Maphaka makes MI debut

Toss Update

Hardik Pandya has won the toss and opted to bowl against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Pitch Report

The shorter boundaries in Hyderabad will help. On the leg side, it’s 66m and on the off side it’s 63m. The straight boundary is 76m. As per Brian Lara, it’s a great batting pitch and against new ball, batters will have a go. But spinners will come into the pitcure in the middle overs.

Hardik under fire

The captaincy switch from Rohit Sharma to Hardik Pandya has not gone down well with fans. Hardik was jeered throughout the GT vs MI clash. And in Hyderabad where Rohit Sharma won IPL title with Deccan Chargers, he is adored. Hence, Hardik Pandya may also face hostility.
