Hardik Pandya

MI captain Hardik Pandya urged his team to be more disciplined and courageous after their third consecutive loss in the IPL 2024 season.

Mumbai Indians (MI) captain Hardik Pandya addressed his team’s struggles after their third consecutive defeat in the IPL 2024 season. Playing their first home game at the Wankhede Stadium, MI fell short against the Rajasthan Royals, losing by six wickets.

Following a disappointing batting performance where they could only put up 125 runs on the board, Pandya acknowledged the team’s shortcomings. “We didn’t start the way we wanted to; tough night tonight,” Hardik told in a post-match interview, as quoted by News18.

Despite the string of losses, Pandya maintained a sense of optimism. “Results: sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn’t. I don’t think much surprises me anymore. But as a group, we believe we can pull off a lot of better things going forward, and we just need to be more disciplined and show more courage,” he added.

The MI skipper also recognised a missed opportunity during his own batting, stating, “I think we were in a decent position to give us a chance to get to 150 or 160, but I think my wicket changed the game and brought them more into the game, and I think I could have done better.”

Further, he acknowledged the challenges faced by the bowlers. “It’s good to have something for the bowlers as well. The game is quite cruel to the bowlers. But it was unexpected. It’s all about doing the right thing,” concluded Pandya.

MI currently sits at the bottom of the table as they have suffered three losses out of the three matches they have played. Looking to bounce back from their slump in their upcoming matches, Hardik Pandya and co. will face the Delhi Capitals on April 7th at Wankhede.
