In their inaugural match, Mumbai Indians (MI) fell short in their pursuit of Gujarat Titans' (GT) target score. Following the conclusion of the match, former captain Rohit Sharma engaged in a conversation with current skipper Hardik Pandya. Rohit's demeanor appeared displeased as he conversed with Hardik. A video circulating on social media captured the moment when Pandya approached Sharma from behind and embraced him. Rohit then turned around and expressed his thoughts on a matter. If his facial expressions are any indication, it is evident that he was dissatisfied about something. Considering Mumbai's unsuccessful chase, it is possible that Rohit may have offered some words of advice to his successor.

Rohit made a strong start for MI, despite the team's inability to successfully chase Gujarat's 168-run target. He unleashed a rapid-fire 43 runs off 29 balls. Notably, Rohit remained unfazed by the early dismissal of his opening partner, Ishan Kishan, who scored zero runs, leaving MI at a score of 0/1. When Sharma was dismissed, Mumbai was comfortably positioned at 107/3 in 12.1 overs. With 62 runs needed to secure their first victory of the IPL season, it appeared to be a manageable task given Mumbai's formidable batting lineup. However, Mumbai experienced a regular loss of wickets throughout the innings.

At the end of the match, Mumbai found themselves in need of 19 runs, with their captain Hardik Pandya at the crease. Pandya managed to hit the first ball for a six and followed it up with a four on the next delivery. With only 9 runs required off 4 balls, Pandya attempted another big shot but unfortunately got dismissed. Some may argue that Pandya could have played a more sensible innings and guided his team to victory. It remains unclear whether Rohit Sharma was displeased with Pandya's approach to the game or if he was upset about something else entirely. However, this has left netizens curious about what Rohit said to Pandya, especially since team owner Akash Ambani was seen conversing with GT's Rashid Khan just behind them.
