New Delhi. The second half of IPL 2021 has not been good for Mumbai Indians (MI) all-rounder Hardik Pandya. He was already not bowling due to fitness issues. This has also affected his batting. He has failed to play big innings this season. However, Hardik sweated hard to put up a better performance against Sunrisers Hyderabad (MI vs SRH) in the last league match to be held in Abu Dhabi today. A video of this has been shared by Mumbai Indians from their social media account. In this, Hardik is seen talking to the coach of the team, Mahela Jayawardene. With this the caption is written – Intention and right attitude matter only.
In this video, Jayawardene can be heard telling Hardik not to comment during practice. Don’t even talk to the bowler. Because you never do this during the match. Whatever you do during the match, practice it in the practice session as well. Just talk to yourself. Understand your shortcomings. If a ball is played poorly, then brainstorm on it and try to play a better shot on the next ball.
Hardik is seen listening very carefully to these things of the coach and says that I will take full care of this in the coming matches.
Jayawardene tells Hardik his mistakes
Hardik’s bat has been silent this season. He has scored just 117 runs in 11 matches at an average of 14.62. He has not been able to score even a single half-century. Hardik has hit 11 fours and 4 sixes in the entire season. In the UAE leg too, his performance with the bat remained shaky. Hardik has scored 65 runs in 4 matches. In a match against Punjab Kings, he had scored an unbeaten 40 off 30 balls. He hit 2 sixes and 4 fours in this match.
Thanks to his innings, Mumbai’s team was successful in winning the match. Leaving this match, he was seen longing for runs. In such a situation, it has to be seen how much this class of coach Jayawardene is useful to him.
