Gujarat Titans (GT) captain, Hardik Pandya is anticipating a close to home standoff against his former establishment Mumbai Indians on Friday. Hardik’s side Gujarat Titans face the 5-time champions at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.
Hardik Pandya enjoyed 7 seasons with Mumbai Indians during which the group brought home 4 championships as the all-rounder has amassed 1476 runs and gotten 42 wickets for them. He was a necessary individual from the Rohit Sharma-drove winning machine.
Notwithstanding, on Friday, Hardik Pandya will be facing MI interestingly. The two groups have seen differentiating trips in the IPL season such a long ways as Gujarat is a success away from possibly affirming their compartment in the IPL 2022 end of the season games.
Then again, MI is everything except out of end of the season games conflict in the wake of overseeing only 1 win in 9 matches.
“I have always seen myself in blue and gold but I am also in blue and gold with my home state, which is something even more special. I kind of got my first glimpse of success in that game (against CSK) where I scored 3 sixes when we needed 32 or something off 2 overs. A lot of memories are there, all my memories have been made with that team.”
“I wish Polly (Pollard) has the best day for him but I hope we win. I messaged Polly a few days ago and said ‘hope you are okay, hope you are enjoying it’. I said we kind of missed him here. In a joking way, I said ‘you never know. you might come to us next year’. It’s my wish but I know it’s never going to happen.”stated by Hardik Pandya.
Talking in the number one spot up to the large conflict, Hardik reviewed a portion of his affectionate recollections with MI, saying the thump against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at Chepauk in 2015 provided him with a brief look at notoriety and popularity. He likewise said he tongue in cheek let Pollard know that the former West Indies skipper could wind up playing for his establishment one year from now.
Hardik and Pollard have been incredible mates on and off the field, having called the West Indies star ‘sibling from another mother’ previously. Pollard, who was held by Mumbai Indians, is going through one of his least fatty patches.
The enormous hitting star, who resigned from worldwide cricket last month, has figured out how to score only 125 runs in 9 counterparts for the 5-time champions at a measly average of under 20.
