MI’s Hardik Pandya Dealing With Mental Issues? Former Indian Cricketer’s Big Claim

Hardik Pandya's homecoming to Mumbai Indians (MI) faces turbulence. Fan criticism and pressure take a toll, raising concerns about his mental well-being

Hardik Pandya’s reunion with Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League has been marred by challenges, both on and off the field. As he steps into the shoes of Rohit Sharma, the pressure seems to weigh heavily on the star all-rounder. However, the most concerning aspect of his journey has been the toll it’s taking on his mental health.

Facing Fan Backlash

Since taking over the captaincy from the highly successful Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya has faced a barrage of criticism from fans. His on-field performance, coupled with the team’s lackluster run, has led to constant booing from spectators and ridicule on social media platforms. This negative atmosphere has undoubtedly affected Hardik’s morale and confidence.

Robin Uthappa’s Support

In a recent statement, former T20 World Cup winner Robin Uthappa voiced his support for Hardik Pandya, shedding light on the mental health challenges the all-rounder is facing. Uthappa emphasized that the treatment meted out to Hardik has been unjust and unfair. He highlighted the impact of constant mocking, trolling and memes on Hardik’s mental well-being, stressing that such behavior is unacceptable in society.

Empathy and Understanding

Uthappa urged fans to exercise empathy and dignity towards Hardik, acknowledging the immense pressure he faces both on and off the field. He emphasized the importance of supporting athletes during their lows and not adding to their struggles with relentless criticism. Drawing parallels to the nation’s reaction to the Indian cricket team’s defeat, Uthappa called for a more compassionate and supportive approach towards athletes.

On-field Performance

In the midst of these challenges, Hardik’s performance on the field has also been under scrutiny. With 141 runs at an average of 23.50 and no half-centuries in the first seven matches, Hardik has struggled to make a significant impact with the bat. His bowling figures, with only four wickets and an economy rate of 11 RPO, further underscore the challenges he faces in finding his form.
