Mohammed Shami was brutal and honest on Hardik Pandya’s departure from Gujarat Titans to Mumbai Indians for IPL 2024. The pacer said no one cares about Hardik’s move as he wasn’t tied up to the franchise for lifetime.

“Kiso ko kisi Kai Jane Sai koyi farak nahi padta. (No one cares about anyone (Hardik Pandya) leaving the franchise). Hardik wanted to leave and he left. He did well as a captain as Gujarat made it to the final twice and also won the title once. He wasn’t tied up to Gujarat for lifetime,” he said on Sports 24.

Shubman Gill will lead the Gujarat-based team in the upcoming season of the tournament. “Shubman Gill will also become experience and there is a possibility of him playing for another franchise in the future. You can’t stop anyone as it is part and parcel of the game,” Mohammed Shami added.

Shami is currently nursing an ankle injury and is out of action. He was not named in the India team for the first two-Tests against England.
