Mumbai: Following Kolkata Knight Riders' (KKR) 24-run win over Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 at the Wankhede Stadium, former cricketer Irfan Pathan said the hosts' "story is finished" in the ongoing season of the T20 tournament.Pathan shared a video on his official Instagram account where he said the Mumbai-based franchise had a good side on paper but was not managed well. He added questions on Hardik Pandya's captaincy is valid.

"Mumbai Indians' story is finished in the IPL 2024. They were a very good team on paper but they have not been managed well. Questions on Hardik Pandya's captaincy are absolutely valid. Today when KKR were 57/5, you bowled 3 bowlers of Naman Dhir. You bowled your 6th bowler, let KKR form a crucial partnership between Manish Pandey and Venkatesh Iyer. The 83-run partnership took KKR to 170 when they should have only got to 150 and that turned out to be the point of difference," Pathan said.

He further added the players need to accept their captain. The 39-year-old opined that it has not happened for MI in IPL 2024.
