Mumbai and India eventually

Nehal Wadhera will eventually play for Mumbai and India for a very long time: Hardik Pandya

Nehal Wadhera prevented MI from collapsing by scoring 46 runs in 41 balls.

Nehal Wadhera received appreciation from Hardik Pandya for his knock against LSG in the IPL 2024. Wadhera has been MI’s best batsman thus far, according to the captain of the team, and he did well against RR and LSG.

The top player claimed that because of the lineup combination early in the competition, the young player was unable to secure a spot in the starting lineup. But now that he gets the chance, he has done a good job fulfilling his duty.

“His batting against Rajasthan and tonight has been outstanding. He also performed a great job the previous year. He was unable to play early due to the squad composition, Hardik stated in the post-game interview. Wadhera has what it takes, according to the MI player, to play for India and establish himself as a regular for the Mumbai Indians over the next several seasons.

In his comments, Hardik also said, “Given his talent, he will play for Mumbai and for India for a lot of years eventually.” Nehal has been a productive batsman since his debut. He was among the season’s most promising stars in 2023. The Southpaw stepped up and was instrumental as a batter for the five-time champs during the absence of certain key players.

Nehal Wadhera’s initial IPL journey

Despite being a debutant, the youthful batter, along with Tilak Varma, contributed to MI being the greatest batting unit of the season. The youthful player contributed 241 runs and useful cameos lower down the order in 14 games for the team. He shown maturity and swift adjustment to various positions as an IPL batter at a young age.

Wadhera’s inability to make the squad in the first few games was attributed to the team composition, as Pandya stated in the post-match interview. Wadhera has, nevertheless, thus far made the most of his opportunities to play. Upon rejoining the starting lineup, Wadhera scored 49 (24) against RR. In the latest encounter with LSG, the developing batsman prevented MI from collapsing by scoring 46 runs (41).
