‘Behave’: Ex-India Star Sanjay Manjrekar Schools Crowd As MI Captain Hardik Pandya Comes For Toss vs RR. Watch

Mumbai Indians are playing their first home match of the IPL 2024 at the Wankhede Stadium on Monday as they take on Rajasthan Royals. The build-up to the match has been all about the pressure that Hardik Pandya is facing following the side’s two straight losses. With Pandya replacing a five-time IPL champion Rohit Sharma at the helm, the focus has been all the more on the star all-rounder.  He has been booed incessantly by the crowd in the previous matches. And, former India star Sanjay Manjrekar had an interesting message for the Wankhede crowd at the toss of the match on Monday.

“We have the two captains with me. Hardik Pandya – captain of the Mumbai Indians. Big round of applause. Ladies and gentlemen, behave,” he said. It was quite a unique gesture which is rarely seen on the cricket ground.

Rajasthan Royals skipper Sanju Samson won the toss and elected to bowl against Mumbai Indians in their IPL match on Monday.

While MI decided to go with the same playing XI of their previous match, RR brought in Nandre Burger in place of Sandeep Sharma, who is not fit.

The two teams are coming into the match following contrasting results. While RR have registered two wins so far, MI have lost both their matches to lie at the bottom of the points table.

The Teams: Rajasthan Royals: Sanju Samson (w/c), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Riyan Parag, Dhruv Jurel, Shimron Hetmyer, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Avesh Khan, Nandre Burger, Yuzvendra Chahal.

Mumbai Indians: Hardik Pandya (c), Ishan Kishan (w), Rohit Sharma, Naman Dhir, Tilak Varma, Tim David, Gerald Coetzee, Piyush Chawla, Akash Madhwal, Jasprit Bumrah, Kwena Maphaka. PTI ATK PDS PDS
