Mumbai Indians captain Hardik Pandya was spotted yelling at MI's former captain Rohit Sharma in the team's IPL 2024 opener against Gujarat Titans. This was a much-anticipated clash since Pandya was traded from the 2022 IPL champions to Mumbai in an all-cash deal. The trade led to a massive negative reaction towards Pandya which further increased after the all-rounder was named the MI captain.

There were many reports about a possible rift between the two but nothing concrete surfaced. Then before the start of the 2024 season, Pandya and Sharma were seen sharing a heartwarming hug in MI's pre-season camp in Mumbai. But in the game against Gujarat Titans, a moment occurred when there was some animosity between the duo.   Check the top betting trends on the  best betting apps in India  and sites.

Hardik Pandya shouts at  Rohit Sharma in IPL 2024

It occurred in the last over of the first innings when Hardik was setting the field. Pandya shouted at Rohit Sharma and instructed him to back to the boundary. Further, Sharma didn't seem extremely happy as he was constantly moved around by Pandya.  The video of the incident has been making the rounds on social media.

Check out the incident here:

Talking about the first innings, Gujarat Titans posted a decent total of 168 which saw youngster Sai Sudharsan play a crucial knock. The Tamil Nadu star scored 45 in 39 balls with three fours and one six. Speaking about his performance, Sudharsan said, " I feel the wicket is a bit tricky and even the bounce is a bit low. They were getting some turn. I think this is a good target, hopefully we save it. I felt this is not a wicket where you can just go after the bowler every ball, every over."

"So I was just thinking of building the middle overs nicely and giving it to the finishers. He (Bumrah) bowled really well today and executed really well, I actually enjoyed that match-up. The dew is also little less today, so I feel that the spinners might come into play and it might grip a little."
