Hardik Pandya kicked off his IPL journey with Mumbai Indians (MI) in 2015, securing victory in four IPL seasons. His association with MI continued until 2021. Rumors suggest that Pandya felt undervalued, which led to his departure from MI.

However, Pandya found a resurgence in his T20I career by leading the Gujarat Titans (GT) to triumph in their debut IPL season in 2022. Despite their commendable performance, they finished as runners-up to Chennai Super Kings in a thrilling final.

Several reports confirm ongoing discussions between MI and Pandya for his potential return, given their belief in his ability to lead the team long-term. There’s a possibility of a cash-only deal, with MI reportedly offering ₹15 crore for the talented all-rounder. This might lead the Mumbai franchise to consider releasing a player like Rohit Sharma or even Jofra Archer if their return to full fitness seems uncertain.

Speculation is rife about Hardik’s departure, but the question remains: could Rohit Sharma potentially join GT? Hardik Pandya stands as one of the most accomplished all-rounders in IPL history, boasting 2309 runs in 123 matches at an average of 30.38 and an impressive strike rate of 145. Despite missing two full seasons due to injury, he has managed to claim 53 wickets with the ball.
