The age of social media has revolutionized access to information, but it has also become a breeding ground for misinformation. This double-edged sword has struck again, with former Indian cricketer Parthiv Patel being targeted by a fabricated quote. Following Ian Bishop’s swift action against a similar misrepresentation, Parthiv Patel has become the latest victim of fake news.

A now-deleted social media post falsely claimed Patel attributed the Mumbai Indians’ (MI) poor performance in IPL 2024 to the captaincy shift from Rohit Sharma to Hardik Pandya.

Taking a proactive stance against such digital deception, Patel promptly addressed the issue on [Platform where Patel responded]. He clarified that the quote was entirely fabricated, highlighting that he hadn’t even provided commentary for the recent LSG-MI match. In fact, his previous commentary stints were for the double-header on Sunday, April 28th, 2024.

 

Parthiv Patel urged the user and others to refrain from spreading misinformation for the sake of online popularity. The controversy surrounding the fake quote comes amidst a genuine concern for the Mumbai Indians. Their recent four-wicket loss to the Lucknow Super Giants has pushed them further down the table, currently sitting in ninth position with only three wins from ten matches.

Their quest to reach the playoffs appears increasingly precarious, requiring them to not only win all remaining matches convincingly but also depend on favourable results from other teams. This situation paints a grim picture for the five-time IPL champions, and while the fabricated quote holds no water, it does highlight the very real struggles faced by the Mumbai Indians in IPL 2024.
