In the first encounter of the season, Mumbai Indians faced yet another setback, this time succumbing to a narrow 6-run defeat against Gujarat Titans. The match marked a significant transition for Mumbai, with Hardik Pandya assuming leadership duties from the seasoned Rohit Sharma. However, amidst the disappointment of defeat, Rohit was seen engaging in a visibly intense conversation with Hardik on the field, with team owner Akash Ambani observing closely.

Despite relinquishing the captaincy, Rohit Sharma remained a central figure throughout the game, actively communicating with players including Hardik, presumably to contribute to strategic decisions.

A circulating video on social media captures a moment where Hardik attempts to embrace Rohit from behind, only to be met with a frustrated expression as Rohit initiates a serious discussion with his successor.

Following the match, Hardik Pandya maintained composure, emphasizing that Mumbai Indians have ample opportunities ahead with 13 more games to rectify their performance.

“Although we were confident in chasing those 42 runs required in the last five overs, it was one of those days where we lost momentum, resulting in a lower score,” Pandya remarked during the post-match presentation. He also expressed his pleasure at returning to the lively atmosphere of the stadium, acknowledging the enthusiastic crowd.

Responding to queries regarding Tilak Varma’s decision to decline a single, Hardik supported his teammate’s judgment, stating, “I believe Tilak deemed it the best option at that moment. I fully support his decision. We have 13 games remaining, so it’s not a concern.”
