KL Rahul was dismissed on the second ball of the eighth over, which was bowled by MI captain Hardik Pandya. The MI all-rounder bowled a hard long delivery outside off stump and KL Rahul tried to smash it down the leg side for a six.

After the match ended, former Indian national cricket team all-rounder Irfan Pathan took the official X from him to launch a fresh attack on Hardik Pandya. He said that Mumbai Indians had poor management on the field, which is why they failed in the Indian Premier League 2024.

“The Mumbai Indians team that qualified last year did not have Jasprit Bumrah, but this season they had his services. Still they are in this situation. Simply because the team was not managed well on the field. Too many mistakes by their captain Hardik Pandya, it’s the truth,” former Indian national cricket team all-rounder Irfan Pathan wrote on X.
