"MI Lost 5 Straight Games Under Rohit Sharma": On Hardik Pandya's Sacking Speculation, Sehwag Speaks Out | Cricket News

The Mumbai Indians captaincy is a topic dominating the discussions during the IPL 2024. After Hardik Pandya replaced Rohit Sharma, there has been a lot of debate on whether the decision was right or not. Moreover, the start of IPL 2024 has been nothing short of disastrous for Mumbai Indians. With three consecutive losses, MI are at the bottom of the IPL 2024 points table. Hardik Pandya has also been booed a lot during matches, even at the Wankhede Stadium, MI’s home ground.

After MI’s recent defeat against RR, former Indian cricket team batsman Manoj Towary said that Pandya might be sacked before the side’s next match. To which Virender Sehwag made an interesting comment.

“I think this statement has been made hastily. This team had also lost five consecutive matches under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy; 5-0. Then they were champions (lost in the play-offs). So they will have to be patient with Hardik also. These are statistics. They are also trailing 0-3. But if this extends further, it could test the patience of the team management,” Sehwag said. Itch.

“Two-three franchises have done that. Punjab did that, Chennai did that when they handed over the captaincy to Jadeja, and then Dhoni took over the captaincy again. But it happened mid-season. I don’t think MI will think about it is being changed now. You can’t change a captain after three games, that doesn’t send the right message to the team. But after seven games, when the season is in the middle of the season, they can take a call. based on how the achievements.”

Former England captain Michael Vaughan recently spoke on the subject and said it was “mind-boggling” to see the cricket-mad Indian fanbase booing one of their own.

“The big debate is whether Rohit Sharma will become captain again. That has created a lot of drama here in India. The booing… I must say the Indian crowd loves cricket. I have never heard them booing. I have they certainly never heard any of them abuse. I get the booing when he played in (Ahmedabad) against the Gujarat Titans. He left them and joined Mumbai. He took them to a title. So I understand that in a pantomime kind of way.”

“But for him to go to Hyderabad and be booed and then come to Wankhede and be booed by the Mumbai Indians fans while he’s playing for them, that blows my mind. I’ve never seen the Indian crowd be one of their own name calling.” It’s remarkable,” Vaughan said on the Club Prairie Fire podcast with former Australian wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist.
