Watch: Rohit Sharma asks fans to stop chanting Rohit, Rohit as Hardik Pandya gets booed

Pandya has been welcomed by fans with boos at all three venues he's been to (Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, and Mumbai). 

All the rumors of a rift between former and new Mumbai Indians captains have been quashed. Being the senior, Rohit Sharma has decided to take matters into his own hands. Fielding at the boundary during the MI vs RR, the opener decided to urge the crowd to stop chanting his name, taking in mind that they had earlier been jeering at Hardik Pandya.

Already getting a lot of hate, both online and offline, Rohit Sharma has given Pandya a helping hand. The all-rounder received a lot of flak from the crowd in Ahmedabad and Hyderabad. To stop him from getting harassed at the Wankhede in his first match as the Mumbai Indians captain at home, MI even enforced some stringent rules.

Those attempts failed, and Hardik Pandya was once again booed by the crowd. During the toss, when Sanjay Manjrekar announced his name, the crowd started jeering. The announcer then had to interfere, telling the crowd to ‘behave’.
