Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya fans get engaged in a brawl in the Narendra Modi Stadium with the video of the Pandya fan being beaten during the fight viral

On Sunday, March 24, the Gujarat Titans defeated the Mumbai Indians by a slim margin of 6 runs at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

Hardik Pandya, who led GT to victory in the previous two seasons, won the 2022 Indian Premier League, and finished second in the subsequent season, made the build-up to this match rather interesting.

Pandya, the recently chosen captain, won the toss and chose to field first. Shubman Gill, the team’s new captain, and wicketkeeper-batter Wriddhiman Saha led GT in the opening game. The game was turned on its head by two outstanding catches made by Mohit Sharma off his own bowling and by Abhinav Manohar, the substitute fielder, to remove the aforementioned batsmen.

Hardik struck the first two balls for six and four, respectively, to set himself up for a 19-run match requirement off the last over, but he was out on the following ball, leaving the lower-order to struggle. The very next ball saw Chawla depart, giving Umesh Yadav a hat-trick ending the match in dramatic way, not as expected as it was for Pandya. The captain also failed to secure a victory for his side and fans were clearly not happy with him.

Meanwhile, during the fifth IPL fixture between the two teams, a furious altercation took centre stage. Two people were seen fighting and trading blows in the stadium stands during the game, according to a video posted by a user on X. Several spectators tried to break up the incident and diffuse it.

During the toss, there were jeers directed at Mumbai Indians captain Pandya, who had left the Gujarat Titans abruptly after leading them for several years. The 30-year-old all-rounder took Rohit Sharma’s spot, who won five titles for the team.

The crowd booed a little bit after the toss, then more loudly when he bowled and gave up a couple of boundaries in the Powerplay, then louder still after he made a diving attempt to stop a boundary.

On the other hand, the former captain and fan favourite, Sharma, gave the visitors a fantastic start. With 29 deliveries, the 36-year-old scored 43 runs, including one maximum and seven fours.
