IPL 2024, RR vs MI: Mumbai Indians skipper Hardik Pandya and Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson (Sportzpics)

Hardik Pandya said he it is a ‘very surreal feeling’ to play his 100th match for Mumbai Indians.

Mumbai Indians (MI) skipper Hardik Pandya, playing his 100th match for MI, opted to bat first against Sanju Samson’s Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Monday.

Hardik Pandya said he it is a ‘very surreal feeling’ to play his 100th match for MI.

“It’s a very surreal feeling to play the 100th game for the franchise, started my journey with MI, I’m very grateful,” Hardik said after winning the toss.

The MI captain also said that MI have made three changes to their side.

“We are gonna bat first, looks like a good wicket, we didn’t see dew in the last couple of days hence the decision to bat first. We got three changes – Nuwan, Wadhera and Piyush Chawla come in. Shepherd, Madhwal, and Shreyas Gopal go out,” Hardik said.

RR captain Sanju Samson said he wanted to bowl first anyway and have made one change to their side.

“We had a slightly different idea about the toss so it’s okay. You know the nature of the tournament, it’s a very long tournament, we had a five day break and we discussed about our plans, it’s about focusing about the system and the process. We have played lots of games here, we know how the wicket behaves. MI are known to come back hard in the tournament so we have to play well. We have had Sandeep Sharma back to our side and Kuldeep Sen misses out,” Samson said.
