New Delhi: Captain of Mumbai Indians hardik pandya He could not hide his disappointment and pressure after the team's fourth defeat in six matches. Disappointment was clearly visible on his face as he struggled to control his emotions.

“This line about Dhoni is interesting. It shows that maybe he is feeling lonely at the moment. Maybe all this is having a bit of an impact because he feels that he is not getting support around him But what he believes about the opposition is that he (Gaikwad) has got support there, obviously this is what tells me about Hardik's mindset and the hesitation in the MI dugout. Tells something.” Gilchrist said on Cricbuzz.
“High-profile teams are victims of their own success. Often there are deals that suddenly come out, and fans feel like, 'Well, we're not invested in this.' He feels he is part of the bigger picture and that's why I feel amazed the way Hardik did business came out of nowhere and the change from Rohit to Hardik…whether Rohit was happy or not. Thought about or not, that's where the sentiment is coming from,'' Gilchrist said.
Mumbai Indians will now face Punjab Kings on Thursday.
