After the 5th defeat, Hardik admitted his mistake, said – I got myself into trouble…


Jaipur. This tournament has not gone well so far for Hardik Pandya, who is captaining Mumbai Indians in the new season of the Indian Premier League. The team, which had achieved a winning streak after the first three defeats, had to face defeat again. Mumbai Indians captain Hardik Pandya admitted after the crushing 9-wicket defeat against Rajasthan Royals on Monday that both his batsmen and bowlers failed to get a good start in the match.

Chasing Mumbai’s target of 180 runs, Yashasvi Jaiswal (104 not out) scored an unbeaten century and added 74 for the first wicket with Jos Buttler (35) and captain Sanju Samson (38 not out in 28 balls, two sixes, two fours). ) made an unbroken partnership of 109 runs for the second wicket. Royals won by scoring 183 runs for one wicket with eight balls remaining. Jaiswal hit nine fours and seven sixes in his 60-ball innings.

Earlier, Mumbai Indians recovered from a bad start and scored 179 runs for nine wickets with the help of a half-century from Tilak Verma (65 runs from 45 balls with three sixes and five fours) and his 99-run partnership for the fifth wicket with Nihal Wadhera (49). . For Royals, Sandeep Sharma (five wickets for 18 runs) bowled the best of his career. Trent Boult (2 wickets for 32 runs) supported him well and took two wickets.

Pandya said after the match, “We got ourselves into trouble in the beginning but the way Tilak and Nihal played, it was fantastic. We could not end the innings as expected and hence we scored 10 to 15 runs less. In bowling we had to keep the balls on the stumps but in the power play we bowled them away from the body. It was not our best day on the field. We did not perform our best. Everyone knows their role, we need to correct our mistakes and not repeat them.
