From Hero to Villain | Hardik Pandya’s Story Reflects the Toxicity Within Indian Cricket’s Fanbase

The negativity from cricket fans have hit an all-time high, overshadowing the ongoing ‘Rohit vs Hardik’ debate, which might not even have a strong basis.

Gautam Gambhir, the admired star of the 2011 World Cup-winning team, has frequently talked about Indian cricket fans’ habit of caring more about individual players than teams on public platforms. This obsession has now reached a new low.

Hardik Pandya, the experienced player with 189 international matches under his belt, has unfortunately faced a lot of criticism from Indian cricket fans. Since he came back to the Mumbai Indians from the Gujarat Titans in the Indian Premier League, the 30-year-old has been heavily criticized by fans all over the country.

Pandya’s successful time with the Gujarat Titans, where he showed his leadership skills, made the Mumbai Indians management choose him as captain. They replaced Rohit Sharma, who had led the Mumbai Indians to five titles, with Pandya as captain, which upset fans of both the Indian team and the Mumbai Indians. 

Hardik Pandya felt the full force of this negativity firsthand when he was booed by the Ahmedabad crowd during a big match between Mumbai and Gujarat at the Narendra Modi Stadium. This surge of unfriendliness, coming from a crowd of 90,000, was especially meaningful for Pandya, who just two years earlier had been cheered at the same venue.

The increase in negativity among fans has not only spoiled the ‘Rohit vs Hardik’ story but has also revealed a concerning pattern within the Indian cricket fanbase. This obsession with individual players has caused fans to unfairly criticize one of their own.

Pandya, who joined the Mumbai Indians in 2015 and quickly rose through the ranks, not only made his debut for the Indian team but also became a well-known name in Indian cricket.

In short, Hardik Pandya’s situation serves as a strong reminder of the negative feelings within Indian cricket fans, highlighting the urgent need for a more positive and supportive fan culture.
