Mumbai Indians star player Nehal Wadhera went to city airport with batting pads. The unusual outfit definitely made him the center of attention.

Nehal had to wear the pads over his pants as a punishment imposed on him by his franchise for being late to the batter’s meeting. The five-time IPL champion shared the video on social media and wrote, “#MumbaiIndians youngster #NehalWadhera turned heads at Mumbai airport with his punishment #OOTD. He was captured wearing his sanitary pad instead of the traditional jumpsuit. According to our sources , #Nehal regrets being late for the batsmen’s meeting.”

MI – who have 14 points to their credit after playing 12 matches in IPL 2023 – are on a roll in the business end of the tournament. On Tuesday, the Rohit Sharma-led side will face Lucknow Super Giants who will try to stop their momentum on a tricky field in Lucknow.
MI has excellent dynamics as they have won four of their last five games. They will be aiming for a hat-trick of wins when they take on LSG.
Mumbai is third on the points table while LSG holds the fourth spot with 13 points from 12 matches.
Both teams will try to get out of harm’s way as the battle for the playoffs gets tight.
