A Mumbai Indians' girl fan brutally trolled skipper Hardik Pandya for his cheap dismissal during the IPL 2024 clash against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Friday, May 3.

Chasing a target of 170, Mumbai Indians lost an early wicket in Ishan Kishan for 13, bowled out by Mitchell Starc at 16/1. Rohit Sharma (11), Naman Dir (11), Tilak Varma (4) and Nehal Wadhera (6) failed to deliver their best as the hosts were reduced to 70/5 in 10.5 overs.

Hardik Pandya walked out to bat at No.7 and many would have hoped him to step up for the team in crunch situations. However, much to the disappointment of the team and the crowd, the 30-year-old was dismissed for just 1 run at 71/6. Pandya attempted a strange shot across the line off on-stumps delivery off Andre Russell but it looped straight up and Manish Pandya took the catch at mid-wicket.

Following his dismissal, Hardik Pandya has been subjected to heavy trolling by Mumbai Indians' fans for his failure to step up for the team in crunch situations. A girl who was watching the match from one of the stands at the Wankhede Stadium brutally trolled MI skipper. In a video that went viral on social media, girl can be heard chanting 'Hardik ka Baap Rohit Sharma (Hardik's Father Is Rohit Sharma.' while the all-rounder was walking back to the dressing room after his dismissal.

Hardik Pandya has been struggling with the bat in the ongoing IPL season. The 31-year-old hasn't yet come up with an impactful performance for Mumbai Indians. In 11 matches, Hardik has managed to score only 198 runs at an average of 19.80 and a strike rate of 147.76.

Mumbai Indians out of playoffs race after defeat vs KKR

Mumbai Indians' hopes to qualify for the playoffs have been dashed after suffering their 8th defeat of the season against Kolkata Knight Riders.

With a target of 170, MI were bundled out for 145 in 18.5 overs. Suryakumar Yadav was the top-scorer for the hosts as he played a valiant innings of 56 off 35 balls. However, his dismissal turned the tables on Mumbai Indians.

The middle-order batter Tim David failed to step in a crucial situation as he was dismissed for 24 by Mitchell Starc. Apart from Suryakumar Yadav, none of the batters showed the fight or resilience to turn the game around for Mumbai Indians.

It was a do-or-die match for Mumbai Indians to remain in contention for the playoffs. With the defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders, Mumbai Indians had to wait for another season to win an IPL trophy again.
