Indian cricket team all-rounder Hardik Pandya found himself in the news recently with multiple divorce rumors from his wife Natasa Stankovic. Speculations intensified as Hardik was not part of the first batch of Indian cricket team stars to fly to New York ahead of the 2024 T20 World Cup and some reports claimed that he was vacationing at a venue undisclosed foreigner. Although Hardik and Natasa haven't said anything about the divorce rumors, the all-rounder took to social media to give an important update. Hardik shared photos from the Indian cricket team's training to show that he 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 named captain of Mumbai Indians ahead of the season and ended the ten-year tenure of Rohit Sharma – a decision that did not go down well with some of the fanbase.

Things got worse as MI won only 4 matches in the competition and finished last. Hardik faced a lot of criticism from fans and pundits alike, with a section of the crowd even booing him.

“A lot of the things he's going through are, personally, maybe a little out of place. It's definitely going to be a learning curve for Hardik as he grows in leadership. Even though times are tough now, some things will pass and that will make him a tougher leader and it will definitely make him grow in that role as well,” the Mumbai Indians coach said. Marc Boucher said in a press conference after MI 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 their faith in Hardik by making him vice-captain.
