Mumbai Indians' ex-captain Rohit Sharma was reportedly seen stopping the spectators from booing Hardik Pandya in a video that has gone viral on social media. The right-handed batter was seen making some gestures with his hand when fielding near the boundary, urging fans to calm down and watch the proceedings.

Since replacing Rohit Sharma as the skipper of the Mumbai Indians, Hardik has been facing backlash repeatedly. The booing of the crowd has especially been jarring as the spectators booed him uncontrollably during the first two games at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad and the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.

The booing also continued when the 30-year-old all-rounder appeared at the toss at the Wankhede Stadium as Sanjay Manjrekar forced himself to urge the crowd to stay silent.

Rohit Sharma departs for a golden duck as Mumbai Indians slump to 3rd consecutive loss:

Meanwhile, Rohit had a match to forget with the bat as he perished for a golden duck, dismissed by left-arm seamer Trent Boult. Boult also removed Dewald Brevis and Naman Dhir for golden ducks in a fiery opening spell as the hosts struggled to recover from that blow.

Hardik Pandya and Tilak Varma passed 30 runs before departing, but the lower-order batters struggled to kick on and failed to give their bowlers a competitive total. Although Akash Madhwal took three scalps, Riyan Parag struck an unbeaten 54 to maintain Rajasthan's winning streak.
