Have to come out of the IPL 2024 disappointment

Hardik Pandya's debut season as the captain of Mumbai Indians was nothing short of a nightmare. The team struggled for results throughout the season and finished at the bottom of the table with just 4 wins in 14 matches. Pandya's performance also led the team down. In the 14 matches, the all-rounder could only cumulate 216 runs with the bat and took 11 wickets in the tournament.

However, Hardik Pandya would quickly have to put the disappointment behind, as a bigger trophy is up for grabs. As the vice-captain of Team India, it would be Pandya's first major assignment, and all eyes would be on him, as he would be required to deliver for India with both bat and ball.
