MI vs. LSG Hardik Pandya: Mumbai Indians captain Hardik Pandya criticized the team’s disappointing performance

The reason for the performance has been attributed to not playing quality cricket. MI had to face a defeat by 18 runs at the hands of Luthe Lucknowuper Giants in the last match of the IPL 2024. This is Mumbai’s 10th defeat in 14 matches this season. MI’s poor season can be gauged from the fact that the team is in the bottom 10th position in the points table. This is only the second time in the history of the IPL that the Mumbai Indians have ended the season at the bottom of the points table; before this, it happened with the team in 2022.

Hardik Pandya stated after the match, “It has been quite difficult… We did not play great cricket, and that cost us the entire season. This is the professional world. You must constantly come out and do your best. But, yes.” As a group, we did not play quality or smart cricket. It is too early to determine what went wrong. “The entire season went wrong.”

I think my captaincy is ordinary. It’s like Hardik Pandya playing with his ten office teammates. My mantra is clear: take care of the players; give them confidence and love. He will go and give more than his 110 percent. This is what I want from the players. I am not a person who worries too much about results. But of course, I worry about the approach. What kind of approach is he showing? And if I feel it suits the team, then it definitely helps the team.

How was the Mumbai vs. Lucknow match?

After losing the toss and opting to bat first, the Lucknow Super Giants put 214 runs on the board in the stipulated 20 overs on the basis of half-centuries from captains KL Rahul and Nicholas Puran. Rahul played a quick inning of 55 runs, while Puran played a quick inning of 75 runs. Chasing this score, Rohit Sharma gave a good start to the team by playing a stormy innings of 68 runs, but he did not get any support from the other end. In the end, Naman Dhir scored an unbeaten 62 runs on 28 balls, but he could not lead the team to victory. MI got stuck at 196 runs only.
