Explaining Hardik Pandya’s Mumbai Indians Transfer Despite Gujarat Titans’ Retention


According to sources, Hardik Pandya finalized a sensational transfer from Gujarat Titans to Mumbai Indians ahead of the 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL).

Indian cricket team all-rounder Hardik Pandya orchestrated a surprising shift from Gujarat Titans to Mumbai Indians for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. Despite being listed in Gujarat Titans’ retention, Pandya’s move was confirmed through an all-cash deal on Sunday, after the retention deadline of November 26. The unexpected transfer became possible due to the trading window, which remains open until December 12.

During this timeframe, all trades among IPL franchises are deemed valid. Consequently, despite Gujarat Titans including Pandya in their list of retained players, the trade to Mumbai Indians was successfully executed. Pandya assumed the role of captain for Gujarat Titans in 2022, securing a title in their debut season and steering them to the IPL 2023 final, where they were defeated by the Chennai Super Kings.

The IPL 2024 mini-auction is scheduled for December 19 in Dubai.
