In a moment of camaraderie during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 clash against SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Monday (May 6), Mumbai Indians (MI) skipper Hardik Pandya received commendation from Rohit Sharma for his impactful performance, particularly after snatching a wicket.

The pivotal moment unfolded early in the 16th over when Hardik delivered a crucial breakthrough for the hosts by dismissing SRH all-rounder Shahbaz Ahmed. After a subdued innings of 10 runs from 12 balls, Shahbaz aimed to accelerate the scoring rate by lofting a full delivery towards the long-on region. However, his timing faltered, sending the ball soaring into the air. Suryakumar Yadav, positioned deep on the field, sprinted towards the trajectory and executed a flawless sliding catch, ensuring a vital wicket for MI.

Rohit Sharma’s gesture of appreciation

After completing the catch, Rohit approached Hardik with a warm gesture, applauding his crucial contribution and offering a reassuring pat on the back. It was a moment of camaraderie and acknowledgment of Hardik’s valuable performance in the match.
