Pandya noted the pitch was challenging and slowed down a bit. He emphasized the importance of batting well with intent. He added that Mumbai Indians were doing fine in the chase until Pathirana took two key wickets.

“It was about choosing the best options at the time. We could have made different decisions. I prefer to play cricket with careful calculations, and it would have been tougher for Shivam Dube to face seamers than spinners. We have four away games coming up and need to maintain our high level of cricket,” Hardik Pandya added.

Rajasthan Royals lead the IPL 2024 points table with 10 points from six games. Kolkata Knight Riders are in second place with eight points, followed by Chennai Super Kings with eight points in third.
