Mumbai Indians' (MI) captain Hardik Pandya spends quality time with his son Agastya in between the Indian Premier League (IPL) match break for four days. A video has gone viral on the Internet where Hardik was seen playing with his son in the MI camp. As the team is preparing to face the Rajasthan Royals in the 14th match of IPL, a mini vacation was needed before they go back to the basics. 

In MI's previous two encounters, they lost close matches against Gujarat Titans (GT) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). Even though the team's performance was good, they couldn't convert it into victories. Also, both the games were away matches and finally, they are back to playing in their den, Wankhade Stadium.  

The next four matches of MI are in Mumbai, they'll be hoping to make a comeback by winning the matches. Currently, they are at the bottom of the table with two consecutive losses. While it seems like an issue for the captain, Hardik will try to change his fortunes in the upcoming matches. 

'Get him to bowl with the new ball...' - Former India batter's advice to Hardik Pandya

Former India batter Aakash Chopra spoke about Mumbai Indians' form and advised the team to bring in Jasprit Bumrah early on. During the match against SRH, Hardik brought Bumrah late into the attack which gave the batters more time to settle in. Moreover, SRH scored the highest number of runs (277) which became an IPL record. 

"A big knock from Rohit Sharma and the pressure on Pandya the captain will be released slightly. Hardik Pandya the captain is once again the player in focus. Get Jasprit Bumrah to bowl with the new ball because you need to get at least two among Jos Butter, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Sanju Samson out in the first six overs. So will he give the new ball to Jasprit Bumrah?" said Aakash Chopra on his YouTube channel.
