hardik pandya

Michael Vaughan strictly condemned the treatment that Hardik Pandya received during MI’s home game at Wankhede and urged the fans to support him ahead of the T20 World Cup.

In a recent development, questions emerged about the treatment of captain Hardik Pandya by the home crowd at Wankhede Stadium. Former England captain Michael Vaughan opined on the Ranveer Show on YouTube that he was surprised at the booing directed towards Pandya by Indian fans.

“I don’t understand booing. I kind of got it in the first game in Gujarat, because he played for them for two years and did not do well as a captain. But then, when he went to Hyderabad, I was like, ‘What’s going on?’ Then, when he came back to Wankhede, his own home support was booing him. I did not understand that,” said Vaughan, as quoted by the Times of India.

Vaughan acknowledged that some initial booing in Gujarat might be linked to Pandya’s stint with the Gujarat Titans. However, he expressed strong disapproval of the treatment Pandya received in other matches, especially at his home ground.

Looking ahead to the T20 World Cup in June, Vaughan emphasised Pandya’s crucial role in India’s success. “What Indian cricket fans need to understand is that Mumbai Indians are Indian fans, and for India to win the T20 World Cup, they need Hardik Pandya. They need him to play well. So somehow, over the next few weeks, they need him to get that confidence level right up to the top level, because with India having Hardik flying, they have a great chance of lifting that trophy,” concluded the 49-year-old.

Moreover, Vaughan urged the Indian fans to speak in support of Pandya, as he understood that the player must not lose his morale before the World Cup. He believes that a well-performing Pandya can significantly improve India’s chances of winning the T20 World Cup trophy.
