Indian cricket team all-rounder Hardik Pandya recently came into the news due to several divorce rumours from his wife Natasa Stankovic. The speculations grew stronger when Hardik was not among the first batch of Indian cricket team stars to visit New York ahead of the T20 World Cup 2024 and some reports claimed that he was holidaying at some undisclosed foreign location. While both Hardik and Natasa have not said anything about the divorce rumours, the all-rounder gave a major update on social media. Hardik shared photos from the Indian cricket team's practice to show that he has joined the team ahead of the tournament, with the caption – “On national duty”.

Hardik had a disappointing IPL 2024 season – both as a player and captain. The all-rounder was appointed captain of Mumbai Indians ahead of the season and this ended Rohit Sharma's ten-year tenure – a decision that was not taken well by a section of fans.

Things got even worse as Mumbai Indians won just 4 matches in the competition and finished last. Hardik faced a lot of criticism from both fans and experts, with a section of the crowd even booing him.

“What he is going through is probably a bit uncharacteristic. It will definitely be a learning curve for Hardik as he moves into leadership. Although times are tough now, things will pass and it will make him a stronger leader and will definitely make him grow in his role as well,” Mumbai Indians coach Mark Boucher said in a press conference after Mumbai Indians played their last match on May 17.

There were also some questions over his selection for the T20 World Cup but the team management showed faith in Hardik and appointed him as the vice-captain.
