After Mumbai Indians’ (MI) debacle in the recently-concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, speculations were rife that all was not well between Hardik Pandya and Rohit Sharma. As per reports, the star all-rounder and the veteran batsman did not see eye to eye in the dressing room, resulting in MI being divided into two separate units.

Fans and experts were concerned that with India all set to kick off their T20 World Cup campaign on Wednesday, head coach Rahul Dravid will have a tough task in getting skipper Rohit and his deputy Hardik to move on from the MI saga.

However, it seemed they took their first step towards uniting in the common cause to get India to win the World Cup as Hardik was spotted bowling full throttle at the nets against Rohit on Monday.

Earlier, a couple of days back, former India cricketer Irfan Pathan had urged Dravid not to bring up the IPL topic in the dressing room in handling the Hardik-Rohit situation. He also suggested him to create a sense of belief in the all-rounder on his importance in the line-up and in India going the distance in the T20 World Cup tournament.
