When the Mumbai Indians played the Gujarat Titans in Ahmedabad's Narendra Modi Stadium, captain Hardik Pandya had to endure a lot of jeers from the fans. When the all-rounder moved bases to make room for Gujarat Titans captain Shubhman Gill in the now-viral video of the event, the crowd gave Gill a thunderous round of applause.

This is what transpired

There has been a substantial online distribution of the incident's footage. The Gujarat Titans (GT) won the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2022 with Hardik Pandya leading them. After that, he went back to the Mumbai Indians, the team he began his career with. The franchise owners responded favourably to his request.

MI VS GT match

In Hardik Pandya's debut game as captain, the Mumbai Indians had earlier won the toss and elected to bowl first. It appeared as though GT would score near or beyond 200, but Jasprit Bumrah's skill limited them to a score of 168/6. Pandya decided to lead the MI assault himself, and he scored 11 runs in his opening over. Interestingly, after Luke Wood bowled the second over and gave up nine runs, he returned for the third over rather than giving the ball to Bumrah.  Then, Bumrah entered the game and used his signature yorker to get Wriddhiman Saha, the first wicket for MI. 

Then, spinners Piyush Chawla and Shams Mulani further halted GT's promising start, with the former dismissing captain Shubman Gill on 31 off 22. Then, Sai Sudharsan, who scored 45 off 39 along with David Miller and Azmatullah Omarzai, gave GT some hard blows. In the 17th over, Bumrah made a comeback and dismissed Miller and Sudharsan.
