DC vs MI IPL 2024: Hardik Pandya furious outburst on ground as Jake Fraser-McGurk, Porel wreak havoc | Watch

DC vs MI IPL 2024: Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi, witnessed a lot of fireworks on Saturday as Delhi Capitals batters punished Mumbai Indians left, right and centre. DC opener Jake Fraser-McGurk and Abhishek Porel gave their team a dream start, and the home team began with a 114-run opening partnership. Hardik Pandya, who suffered from poor form in IPL 2024, leaked 41 runs in just two overs and was losing his cool at different points in the match.

Hardik Pandya, who is already facing severe backlash for replacing Rohit Sharma as the Mumbai Indians captain and leading the MI’s poor run in IPL 2024, faced more trolling on Saturday after a video of his outrage went viral on social media. Fans questioned his audacity after he leaked so many runs in just two overs.

Mumbai Indians are having a tough time at IPL 2024. The team continues its losing run and is lingering on the second-last position on the IPL 2024 points table with just three wins in the eight matches they played. Against DC, Mumbai is chasing 258 runs, and Tilak Varma is again proving to be valuable for the Hardik Pandya-led team as he is leading the chase with Tim David. 

Irfan Pathan’s warning for Hardik Pandya

Amid a poor run in IPL 2024, India’s veteran pacer Irfan Pathan lashed out at Mumbai Indians pacer Hardik Pandya and asked the Indian cricket not to give him that much priority. Irfan Pathan said that the all-rounder has yet to make much impact in international cricket and must play throughout the year to prove his worth. 

“What I feel about Hardik Pandya is that Indian cricket needs to clarify that they should not give him as much priority as they have given him so far because we still haven’t won the World Cup. And if you think you are a primary all-rounder, you need to make that kind of an impact at the international level. As far as the all-rounder is concerned, he has yet to make that impact internationally; we are only thinking about the potential. We need clarification on the IPL performances and the international performances. That’s a big difference,” Irfan Pathan said on Star Sports Press Room Show.
