Video featuring Hardik Pandya and Lasith Malinga sparks a new storm among Mumbai Indians | Cricket News

Everything going well in the Mumbai Indians camp? The appointment of Hardik Pandya as captain of the franchise, in place of Rohit Sharma, would not have gone down well with everyone. After Mumbai suffered back-to-back defeats in their first two matches of the 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL) campaign, the situation seems to have gotten worse. A video has emerged on social media, making fans wonder if Hardik and Malinga’s relationship has deteriorated. In the video, the MI captain could be seen pushing away the legendary Sri Lankan.

Malinga, who is a legend in Mumbai Indians, currently working as a coach, came to hug Hardik after the conclusion of the match but the skipper did not seem in the mood and pulled the Lankan aside after a brief handshake. Here is the video:

Hardik Pandya was upbeat despite Mumbai losing their second consecutive match of the season, against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

“The toughest soldiers face the toughest test; we are the toughest team in the competition, anyone who could have come close to where we have reached as a batting group or simply we are in the whole – let’s make sure that we will help each other; bad or bad, we will be together,” Hardik said.

Summing up the match, Sunrisers Hyderabad were put into bat first by Mumbai Indians. Fiery hits came from Travis Head (62 in 24 balls, with nine fours and three sixes) and Abhishek Sharma (63 in 23 balls with three fours and seven sixes) who propelled SRH to 148/2 in their 10 overs.

A brief 48-run stand between Abhishek and Aiden Markram (42* in 28 balls, with two fours and a six), Heinrich Klaasen (80* in 34 balls, with four boundaries and seven sixes) formed a 116-run stand in 54 balls to take SRH to 277/3 in their 20 overs, the highest IPL total ever.

MI had been well controlled by the SRH bowlers and restricted to a commendable 246/5 ​​in 20 overs, losing by 31 runs.
