During the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL 2024) match between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Delhi Capitals (DC), the home side posted their highest-ever total at the Wankhede. It was an explosive batting display from the MI batters, especially Romario Shepherd who slammed a staggering 32 runs in the last over. 

Although MI managed to breach the 200-run mark, skipper Hardik Pandya once again came under scrutiny for his slow batting approach, with an SR of 118 in today's game. 

Pandya scored 39 of 33 balls and was the slowest batter in the entire MI roster. 

Following the knock, fans were quick to express their angst on social media about how Pandya's knock slowed down the entire MI innings. Check of the reactions below.

Mumbai Indians eye first win of the season against DC

Talking about the game, Romario Shepherd's blistering knock propelled MI to a score of 234 for 5 in 20 overs. 

The West Indies star built on a strong foundation, laid out by some stellar performances from Rohit Sharma (49), Ishan Kishan (42), Hardik Pandya and Tim David (45 not out) in batting-friendly conditions at the Wankhede.

Suryakumar Yadav, who made his return after a sports hernia surgery had a forgettable outing. SKY perished for a two-ball duck on his first game since mid-December last year.

It is an extremely crucial match for the Mumbai Indians, who are yet to win a game this season under the leadership of Hardik Pandya. MI are currently at the bottom of the points table. DC, on the other hand, is also struggling, having won just one out of four matches and are placed ninth.
