Hardik Pandya: The 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2022) will start on March 26. In the first match, the defending champions Chennai Super Kings will face last-time finalists Kolkata Knight Riders (CSK v KKR). All the teams are busy in their preparations at this time. The new IPL franchise Gujarat Titans also launched its jersey on Sunday. Team captain Hardik Pandya and coach Ashish Nehra were also present on this occasion. There is only one question in everyone’s mind that will Hardik bowl in IPL? This is because Pandya has not been bowling for some time now. There are also doubts about his fitness.
When Hardik Pandya was questioned by the media about his bowling at the time of launching the team’s jersey, he laughed and said that it will be a surprise for everyone and he cannot say anything more than this. Experienced all-rounder Hardik was last seen playing in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 last year. Since then he was dropped from the team. Hardik is having trouble bowling after his back surgery. He could not even bowl in the IPL last year.
In IPL 2022, Gujarat Titans will play their first match against Lucknow Super Giants on March 28. This match between the two teams will be played at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Before leaving for Mumbai, the Gujarat team will start its pre IPL camp in Ahmedabad from March 14. Gujarat had drafted Hardik Pandya, Shubman Gill, and Rashid Khan before the IPL 2022 Mega Auction. The Ahmedabad franchise spent Rs 15 crore on Pandya, while Rashid has also been associated with him for 15 crores. Shubman Gill has been added by the franchise for Rs 8 crore.
There are dark blue stripes on the jersey
The color of the Gujarat Titans jersey is dark blue. On one side is the team’s logo. At the same time, there are also dark blue stripes on the jersey. Earlier, Virat Kohli’s RCB and Delhi Capitals also launched their new jersey.
