Mumbai: Mumbai Indians finally won their first IPL 2024 match on Sunday beating Delhi Capitals after losing their first three matches. Hardik Pandya who replaced Rohit Sharma as MI skipper was elated with the victory and shared a tweet saying, "We're up and running." MI fans advised Pandya to take a bath and touch the feet of his predecessor Rohit Sharma.

MI fans have not taken the change of guard in the right spirit and Pandya has been at the receiving end in every match Mumbai Indians has played in the short form tournament. From being booed to called names, Pandya has seen it all since the beginning of the tournament.

The Sunday victory was no exception. Some fans praised Pandya for his leadership skills.

One user said, "This team looks invincible now under Captain Hardik Pandya. Never seen a MI team stronger than this."

Some users also linked the victory to Pandya's visit to Somnath temple on April 5. A video of his visit to Somnath temple was shared on the social media site.

Another user reminded Hardik Pandya that he hit only three boundaries in his 39 off 33 balls, one less than the four pics he had shared on the social media platform.

Another user Dev attributed the win to Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah and advised Pandya to "wash their feet and drink the water daily 2 times if you have any shame left."

Another user Aarambh Sharma lauded Sharma and Bumrah for their contribution but flayed Pandya for his disappointing performance.

He said, "There's no denying that Bumrah's exceptional bowling and Rohit's explosive batting are what keep MI afloat. On the other hand, Pandya's performance was truly disappointing."

In post match comments Pandya said that all was well in the MI dressing room. There were reports that MI team members were yet to accept Pandya as their captain.
