As the IPL fever increases with each day passing, former Indian cricketer and Gujarat Titans coach Ashish Nehra finally broke his silence on Hardik Pandya’s big move to Mumbai Indians. Hardik Pandya was made Mumbai Indians skipper after his move to the 5-time IPL winners. This meant that the franchise’s long time skipper Rohit Sharma was dropped from the role and will play under his Indian teammate this season.

This unexpected move raised eyebrows, especially considering Pandya’s leadership role with Gujarat Titans after he joined them before IPL 2022. Hardik Pandya excelled as captain for Gujarat Titans, leading them to victory in the inaugural season. He not only performed exceptionally with the bat, scoring over 400 runs, but also contributed with the ball, showcasing his all-round abilities. His leadership continued to shine in the subsequent season.

Under Pandya’s guidance, Gujarat Titans reached the IPL 2023 final, although they fell short against Chennai Super Kings. Many anticipated Pandya to lead the team in the following season, but his transfer to Mumbai Indians became the most significant trade in IPL history.

He expressed the significance of donning the blue jersey, stating that it holds a special place in his heart.
