Mumbai Indians' performance in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has not been one to forget as the five-time champions have lost three consecutive matches. Currently at the bottom of the points table, MI's newly appointed captain Hardik Pandya has also been facing severe criticism from the fans ever since he replaced Rohit Sharma as the captain. MI's latest defeat came against Rajasthan Royals, who restricted them to 125/9 and then chased the target in just 15.3 overs.

After the defeat against RR, a very emotional moment was captured when Hardik was seen sitting in the dugout and chatting with Ambati Rayudu. Hardik placed his hand on Rayudu's shoulder and the former MI batsman was seen consoling him.

“A tough night, we didn't start the way we wanted to start. I wanted to compete, we were in a good position to get to around 150-160, but my wickets helped them get back into the game. “Allowed, I need to do a lot. It's okay, we didn't expect such a surface, but you can't always have it as a batsman, sometimes it's good for the bowlers to have their say.” It's all about doing the right things, the (right) results sometimes happen, sometimes they don't. As a group, we believe we can do much better, but We need to be a little more disciplined and show a lot more courage,” Hardik said. After MI's defeat.

Earlier, former India cricketer turned commentator Navjot Singh Sidhu echoed the sentiments of thousands of Rohit Sharma fans as he asked what wrong the hitman did to deserve his removal as Mumbai captain.

“Nobody can digest the fact that the hero of India, the captain of India, is not the captain of our franchise. 'What has he done wrong?' That's what fans of the franchise must be thinking,” Navjot Sidhu said on Star Sports.

He added, “But what does he have to do? Nothing is more important than success. If he had won these two matches, there would have been no noise.”
