Hardik Pandya, the captain of the Mumbai Indians, says, “We never give up, we’ll keep fighting.”

Despite suffering a hat-trick of losses, Mumbai Indians captain Hardik Pandya said on Tuesday that his team would not give up and will keep fighting in the present IPL.

One thing about our squad that you should know is that we never give up. We’re not going to give up; we’ll keep battling,” Hardik wrote on X.

Since Hardik took over as MI captain in place of Rohit Sharma, the fan base has been furious with him. In the team’s first two games, the all-rounder was jeered, and on Monday, when MI played its first home game of the season, the level of fan animosity peaked.

To make matters worse, MI’s 2024 IPL campaign had a terrible start under his leadership, and after three straight defeats, they now lie at the bottom of the table.

MI, however, has a reputation for always starting slowly. They had to lose their first four games in 2015 before winning the championship.

It has also been questioned if Hardik made the right leadership decisions in not handing Bumrah the ball or by putting Tim David ahead of himself against the Gujarat Titans.

The hordes of MI fans are not pleased with the leadership move. The Wankhede was filled with shouts of “Rohit Rohit” on Monday, and the Indian skipper himself asked the throng not to make fun of Hardik.

The Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians will play at home on Sunday.
