During this phase, he was part of the team in their title-winning campaigns in 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2020. Ahead of the 2022 mega auction, Pandya was released and he went on to join eventual winners, Gujarat Titans.

He led the side to their maiden title win in their debut season. This year, they are looking to defend the title, a feat only achieved by his former side MI and CSK. Meanwhile, the Gujarat player has called the four-time winners, CSK an inspirational side citing them as being able to bring the best out of their players.

We are sorry for Mohammed Shami: Hardik Pandya

Meanwhile, the defending champions lost their previous game against last-placed Delhi Capitals by five runs. Despite Mohammed Shami taking four wickets inside the powerplay, the team failed to close out the innings. Skipper Pandya scored a fifty but in vain.

During the post-match presentation, he said: “I tried my best but could not capitalize. It boils down to me. It boils down to how I was not able to finish the game. Full marks to their bowlers as well and full ownership for my side where I could not finish the game. I should’ve.”

“I feel sorry for him. If you bowl like that, then you get the team on 129, I think batters disappointed. I don’t think the ball did a lot. I think it’s just that Mohammed Shami’s skill set which he has and he made the ball talk. Otherwise, I think for fast bowlers, the wicket did not have much assistance. But the way he bowled four on the trot and got us in the game, full credit,” Pandya said about Shami.
