VIDEO: Rohit Sharma Took Leadership Charge From Hardik Pandya, Asked All-rounder To Move At The Boundary Rope

Despite being given the captaincy, Pandya has not lived up to expectations for Mumbai Indians and fans at least in the first two matches of the league, and on Wednesday in the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Rohit Sharma was seen taking the charge.

In the first match against Gujarat Titans, Pandya was seen directing Rohit to the field near the boundary rope. However, the dynamic shifted during Mumbai’s match against Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium on Wednesday.

Rohit Sharma took charge of arranging the field placements and guiding the bowlers, reflecting his previous leadership approach, while Hardik Pandya encountered challenges in handling the aggressive batting onslaught from the Sunrisers Hyderabad players.

When SRH scored 81 runs in the powerplay, on the back of sixes from Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma, Rohit Sharma took charge to lead the five-time champions. Rohit Sharma was the captain of Mumbai Indians until IPL 2023 and was seen providing instructions to Hardik Pandya. This video of Rohit asking Pandya to field at the boundary rope has been captured.

In this match, while batting first, Heinrich Klaasen, Travis Head, and Abhishek Sharma came with scintillating fifties and helped the team put on a record score of 277 runs in the allotted 20 overs.

Mumbai Indians in response could only manage 246 runs, losing 5 wickets. For Mumbai Indians, Tilak Varma got 64 runs while Tim David got 42. This is the second consecutive loss of Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2024 edition.
