The Mumbai Indians, under Hardik Pandya, have once again made a slow start to their Indian Premier League (IPL 2024) campaign. Fans have been unfair to Hardik since Rohit Sharma was stripped of the captaincy role, which has paralleled the team’s poor performance.

There has been a history of Mumbai Indians starting slowly in the IPL. Their priorities are finishing strongly, and they have often done so in impressive fashion. In the past, MI struggled in the league games, but eventually won it. Their five IPL triumphs demonstrate their resilience and ability to cope with pressure.

“All these years, this has been the story of Mumbai Indians, where we start slow and then things start to change…,” Rohit said.

In the IPL 2024, they currently rank No.9 in points, following three consecutive losses followed by two wins before losing to Chennai Super Kings in their last match. It would be a mistake for most IPL fans to overlook one of the tournament’s strongest teams.

Rohit Sharma Opens Up On Captaincy Change

As Rohit Sharma, the architect of many of MI’s turnarounds, no longer leads the team, their comeback may face additional challenges this year. For the 17th season, MI appointed Hardik Pandya as their captain. Many MI fans were critical of this decision, evident in the reactions seen during matches, where Hardik faced boos and trolls, even at their home ground.

He said he had been working with the support staff for the past decade to foster a winning culture when asked about MI’s trend of starting slowly and improving as the tournament progresses. In order to succeed in the IPL, he said he wanted to shape the squad according to his vision.

“The captain for the last 10 years was stagnant. The coaches have changed but the captain has been the same. I went in with some sort of thought process… The new people who come in (to the squad), I wanted to get them to (follow) my thought process because I know how IPL works and what it takes to be a successful team. It takes time to take everyone on board and make them do something which they are not used to,” he added.
