Hardik Pandya has been traded from Gujarat Titans (GT) to the Mumbai Indians (MI) ahead of the IPL 2024. He led GT to back-to-back IPL finals, winning the first one in 2022, while failing to cross the line against Chennai Super Kings in 2023.

Hardik’s departure is being considered as a big blow for the Gujarat-based team.

However, former Australian left-arm spinner Brad Hogg claimed Gujarat have players to reach the final in the upcoming season.

“Gujarat Titans fans you might be a bit sad that Hardik Pandya has returned to the Mumbai Indians for IPL 2024. Don’t feel betrayed. He took you to the finals twice as skipper and you won the title in 2022. A lot of money was involved in his trade. I feel you will be in the finals once again,” he said

Hogg also lauded Hardik for leading GT from the front despite coming from MI with a heavy heart

“Hardik came to GT with a sad feeling as he wanted to continue to play for MI. Pandya started his career with Mumbai Indians.

He still rose to the occasions and led Titans to glory in the first season,” he added.Brad Hogg said the all-rounder can play at No. 5, allowing Suryakumar Yadav and Tilak Varma to face more balls.

“Hardik Pandya’s comeback will add more firepower to Mumbai’s batting line-up. He can help Tim David in the death overs while SKY and Tilak can bat up the order,” he concluded.

Mumbai Indians still have INR 17.75 crore purse left. [ CricketToday]
