"MI Lost 5 Straight Games Under Rohit Sharma": On Hardik Pandya's Sacking Speculation, Sehwag Speaks Out

But after seven games, when the season is right in the middle, they can take a call based on how the performance has been."

Former England captain Michael Vaughan recently spoke about the topic and said that it was "staggering" to see the cricket-crazy Indian fanbase booing one of
