Hardik Pandya remains motivated despite Mumbai Indians’ struggles in IPL 2024. “Obviously, we couldn’t form partnerships and kept losing wickets. There are a lot of questions that will take time to answer,” Pandya said.

The Mumbai Indians suffered another setback in their most recent IPL (Indian Premier League) 2024 match. The loss occurred against the Kolkata Knight Riders. On Friday, May 3, both teams faced off in the tournament’s 51st game in Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium.

The battle saw Kolkata bat first and score 169 runs in the first innings, and despite attempting to chase down the goal, Mumbai Indians’ batters once again failed to complete the job. MI was bundled out for 145 runs, and the side lost by 24 runs.

After the game, MI captain Hardik Pandya took the stage and discussed his team’s performance against KKR. Despite a spate of poor outcomes, the star all-rounder believes he is not yet ready to leave the game.

“Obviously, we struggled to create partnerships and kept losing wickets. There are many questions that will require time to answer. But for now, there isn’t much to say. “The bowlers did an excellent job on this track,” Pandya stated at the post-match presentation ceremony.

“The wicket improved, if I am not mistaken. Dew appeared in the second inning. We’ll go over the game and evaluate what we can do better. I tell myself to keep fighting and never quit the battlefield. Tough days happen, but so do good ones. “It’s difficult, but challenges make you stronger,” he added.

KKR dominates as MI face eighth loss of the season

Aiming to chase down a goal of 170 runs, the Mumbai Indians got off to a slow start, with openers Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma dismissed for 13 and 11 runs, respectively. Naman Dhir added 11 runs to the total, while Tilak Varma and Nehal Wadhera scored four and six, respectively.

Suryakumar Yadav was the leading run-getter, scoring 56 runs in 35 deliveries; nevertheless, his performance was insufficient to propel MI to victory, as the five-time winners finally lost by 24 runs.
