Insider Revelations: Gujarat Titans’ Surprising Decision on Hardik Pandya Unveiled?
As India’s T20I captain, Srikkanth emphasised that Hardik Pandya’s participation will help the five-time champions.
The deadline for retention and releases is November 26th, which also marks the end of the franchise trade window.
Mumbai is reportedly going to get Hardik from the Gujarat Titans. Mumbai is scheduled to pay Gujarat a transfer fee, and the deal is expected to be closed in cash alone.
Kris Srikkanth highlighted in a video posted to his YouTube channel that the current MI captain, Rohit Sharma, will help to ensure a seamless change in leadership.
He emphasised how the Mumbai Indians will benefit from Hardik’s strategic thinking and winning charm.
“Yes, hopefully the rumours are accurate. It’s a big benefit for Indians in Mumbai. Regardless of your opinion, he leads the Indian T20I team as captain. He is undoubtedly one of the world’s top all-around players and exudes charm.
He is also a thoughtful captain. An enormous benefit and boost for the Mumbai Indians, stated Srikkanth.
Although the return of Hardik Pandya to the Mumbai Indians surprised the former Indian chief selector, he saw it as a good addition to the squad.
Concerns with the choice to release Hardik from the Gujarat Titans were also voiced by Srikkanth.
Yes, it comes as a big surprise. However, Mumbai Indians will find it to be a great addition.
MI produced Mumbai Indians solely. I still remember Hardik’s 2015 sixes against the Chennai Super Kings.
Yes, MI required a versatile player.
There may be a lot of questions you have about trading. “Why are Gujarat Titans releasing their captain?” one may wonder.
Perhaps they see it from a business perspective.
Yes, it comes as a big surprise as he led them to victory and to the finals.
Given the financial restrictions, the Mumbai-based team might have to make some calculated choices in order to accommodate Hardik Pandya.
It is anticipated that players like Jofra Archer and Cameron Green will be let go in order to control the budget before the auction.
