WATCH : Hardik Pandya gears up for a grand welcome at Wankhede with his chants


Just a few months ago during the Indian Premier League season, newly appointed Mumbai Indians skipper Hardik Pandya faced significant criticism and mockery, particularly from the Wankhede crowd.

The team’s poor performance raised doubts about Pandya’s captaincy, and videos emerged of fans taunting him outside the stadium. However, everything changed dramatically with Pandya’s standout performance in the ICC T20 World Cup.

His crucial dismissals of Heinrich Klaasen and David Miller turned him into a star, completely altering public perception.

As the Indian team prepared for a victory parade, a large crowd gathered at Wankhede Stadium, including many who had previously criticized Pandya during the IPL. The sea of blue made their way to Wankhede, where the Men in Blue would be felicitated by the BCCI.

Remarkably, the same Wankhede crowd now welcomed Pandya with chants of “Hardik, Hardik.” The Twitterverse buzzed with excitement as a packed Wankhede echoed with his name.
