‘Rohit Sharma’ posters not allowed at Wankhede Stadium? Video goes viral during MI vs RR IPL match | Cricket News

Mumbai Indians had a very good start to their home campaign in IPL 2024 against Rajasthan Royals on Monday as their batters failed to fire. It’s been a season to forget for Mumbai Indians, with three straight defeats leaving them at the bottom of the 10-team points table. Adding to MI’s woes, the change of captaincy from Rohit Sharma to Hardik Pandya has upset many fans. Pandya was booed during MI matches, including at the Wankhede Stadium on Monday.

Meanwhile, a video went viral on social media claiming that a poster of Rohit Sharma and a quote from a famous Bollywood film would not be allowed at Wankhede Stadium. “Rishte mein toh hum tumhare, captain baap lagte hain,” the poster read. It is not clear whether the video is authentic or not. NDTV cannot determine whether the video was shot outside the Wankhede Stadium.

There were also rumors that the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) had started planning action against fans who had targeted Hardik.

However, MCA has denied this and said they will follow BCCI guidelines on crowd behavior.

“No instructions were given for this particular game. The BCCI has over the years issued set guidelines on spectator conduct, i.e. the process that is followed,” said an MCA statement quoted by News 18.

Speaking of the game, the ice-cold Rajasthan Royals claimed their third consecutive win in the Indian Premier League with a six-wicket win against the Mumbai Indians, whose captain Hardik Pandya continued to draw the ire of fans Monday.

After Yuzvendra Chahal (3/11) and Trent Boult (3/22) combined to suffocate Mumbai Indians with the bat, restricting them to 125/9, Riyan Parag (54 not out) delivered another classy knock to defeat Rajasthan Royals to first place in IPL points table.

The 22-year-old Parag continued to make great strides this season with a shot that reflected his maturity and aggressiveness. He scored some spectacular goals and was determined not to give up until his team crossed the finish line.

Parag’s knock was studded with five fours and three sixes as the Royals reached 127/4 after 15.3 overs, winning with 27 balls to spare.

Meanwhile, there was no rest for Pandya, who was booed several times in Mumbai Indians’ first home game. It started with Pandya being booed as he entered the field for warm-up exercises and the fans again hit the player hard when he came out to throw.
