Mumbai Indians' fans displayed their anger towards the franchise after they slumped to their 3rd consecutive loss in IPL 2024 on Monday against the Rajasthan Royals at the Wankhede Stadium. With Hardik Pandya receiving boos during the toss, the loss didn't do him any good as fans called for Rohit Sharma to return in the role more strongly than ever.

In a video going viral on social media, fans have called for Rohit Sharma to return as captain, citing that the veteran opener's comeback in the role will make Mumbai Indians a successful side again. A few fans also lashed out at Hardik Pandya's attitude, accusing him to be too casual and want him to step down.

Mumbai Indians scored the lowest total in IPL 2024 thus far when they managed only 125-9 in 20 overs against the Rajasthan Royals on Monday at the Wankhede Stadium. 3 Mumbai Indians batters, including Rohit Sharma perished for golden ducks, while Pandya was the highest scorer with 34.

What Hardik Pandya said after the defeat?

Speaking at the post-match presentation, Hardik admitted that they needed at least 150-160 on that pitch an felt he should've gone on to make it big.

"Yes, a tough night, we didn't start the way we wanted to start. I wanted to counter, we were in a decent position to get us around 150-160, but my wicket allowed them to get back more into the game, I needed to do a lot more. It's okay, we didn't expect such a surface, but you can't always have it as a batter, it's nice at times for the bowlers to have a say. It's all about doing the right things, (correct) results happen at times, at some other times it doesn't."

Mumbai Indians will next face the Delhi Capitals on Sunday.
