Nehal Wadhera, a key batsman for Mumbai Indians in IPL 2023, has gained a reputation for his impressive batting performances. However, he recently caught attention for an unusual sight at the airport. As a punishment for being late to a team meeting, the left-handed batsman was seen walking with his batting pads on, a sight that was captured in a video shared by Mumbai Indians on social media.
The caption accompanying the video described it as a unique form of discipline for the young player. This incident is likely to serve as a lesson for Wadhera, ensuring his punctuality in future meetings. It was undoubtedly an embarrassing moment for him to be seen in such an unconventional attire in public.

Despite this off-field issue, Nehal Wadhera’s contributions have played a significant role in Mumbai Indians‘ success this season. His performances have been instrumental in helping the team secure the third spot with 14 points, making him one of the few driving forces behind the five-time champions.
In their upcoming match against Lucknow SuperGiants, both teams are in a must-win situation as they have only two matches remaining and need victories to secure a spot in the playoffs.
