Mumbai Indians will be facing the high-flying Rajasthan Royals at MI’s home ground, Wankhede Stadium on April 1. Fans would be flocking to the stadium to see their heroes take the field. However, one player would be getting a lot of unwanted attention at Mumbai’s fortress as well.

Newly appointed skipper Hardik Pandya will be facing his home crowd for the first time after replacing former captain Rohit Sharma ahead of the new season. With 2 losses from 2 in the tournament, it’s debatable whether the Indian all-rounder will be getting a warm welcome or not. How Mumbai lost the high-scoring thriller to SunRisers Hyderabad has stuck to the fans who saw their team concede a record total in front of them.

Wankhede Ultimatum For Hardik

With rumours flying around the captaincy role of Mumbai Indians, many people think Hardik’s first home game for Mumbai this season, could well be his last one as MI captain if things go south for him in the encounter.

Mumbai’s record at Wankhede has been good as well. They have played 78 games over the years and have won 49 of them. MI has lost only 29 games with one game ending as a tie.

Hardik Pandya himself has not performed up to the mark this season, Having picked a single wicket so far, Hardik has managed to get only 35 runs in the 2 matches Mumbai have played.

Hardik ‘Clueless’ vs SRH

Hardik added fuel to the fire when he was seen asking for instructions from Rohit Sharma in the middle against the Sunrisers. People took to their social media accounts as well to show how clueless Pandya made himself look at that point. Additionally, the serious talk between MI owner Anant Ambani and Rohit Sharma after the game made people think that Hardik’s time may well be up sooner than he expected it to be.
