Mumbai Indians (MI) skipper Hardik Pandya is unable to deliver goods with his leadership in the ongoing game against Delhi Capitals (DC) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. The 43rd game of the tournament between the teams is taking place at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. 

Delhi Capitals (DC) batters have unleashed themselves on the batting friend Arun Jaitley Stadium pitch and have put Mumbai Indians bowlers under tremendous pressure. Skipper Hardik Pandya has made quite a few bowling changes but that didn't seem to work. 

With the kind of batting display Delhi Capitals batters have shown, it seems that there aren't any fielders on the ground as the ball has been sailing over them.  The field placements by Mumbai Indians skipper Hardik Pandya seemed to be under scanner as well. 

With things not going in Mumbai Indians' way, Nehal Wadhera amidst all stole the limelight. During the second over of the game ahead of the 5th ball, the young batter went running to the team's former skipper Rohit Sharma, seemingly asking him to set the field. 

What caught the attention of many was both Nehal Wadhera and Rohit Sharma didn't consider taking Hardik Pandya's advice, who is the captain of the team. The all-rounder was standing behind the duo and watched it all happening.

This came when Jake Fraser-McGurk was going great guns with the bat right from the start. He took attack to the bowlers right from the start and took his team off the brutal start with the bat at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. 

Jake Fraser-McGurk made Mumbai Indians bowlers look clueless and with the way he was batting, it seemed that he would slam a brutal century. The batter played a sensational innings of 84 runs off just 27 balls. He batted with a strike rate of over 311 and also hit 11 fours and 6 sixes in his innings at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. 

Hardik Pandya has another miserable outing with the ball again in IPL 2024 

Hardik Pandya yet again has a torrid outing with the ball in the ongoing IPL 2024. The all-rounder yet again bowled poor lines and lengths and was taken a lot of runs at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. The DC batters showed no mercy on him. 

Hardik Pandya bowled two overs in the game and gave away 41 runs. He had an economy rate of over 20, which speaks about the kind of torrid outing he had with the ball in the ongoing game against Delhi Capitals in the 43rd game of IPL 2024. 

Jasprit Bumrah yet again was the pick of the bowlers for Mumbai Indians. He gave away just 35 runs in the 4 overs that he bowled and also picked the wicket of Rishabh Pant (29). The home side posted a gigantic total of 257 runs on the board.
