As Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya faced off on the pitch, they had their cheerleaders cheering them on from the stands.

Ritika Sajdeh, Ro's missus, was, like always, in the house.

As was Mrs Pandya: Natasa Stankovic, looking comfy but gorgeous in black.

Star India and MI pacer Jasprit Bumrah, who is currently out of action following back surgery, was also present in the stadium to cheer on his team.

Boom Boom's absence has definitely been felt by the five-time champions, but seeing him in the stands was a morale booster for Mumbai.
