Mumbai Indians are Planning to Release Hardik Pandya Before Auction


Bad news for Hardik Pandya and his fans. According to the reports, Hardik Pandya can be seen in the IPL auction pool next season. That is, Mumbai Indians have made up their mind not to retain him. Five-time champion MI has prepared a list of players to be retained. Let us tell you that from IPL 2022, we will now get to see ten teams in IPL. The two new teams joining the league are Lucknow and Ahmedabad.

Now the mega auction is to be held before the new season starts. And through this, the teams will prepare their core, keeping in view the future. However, MI is preparing to go with the same core of one of the best teams of the last 14 seasons. And Hardik Pandya does not seem to be set in this core. Hardik, who started as an all-rounder, nowadays plays as a specialist batsman.

On this issue, a senior IPL official told PTI.

“I think BCCI will go with three-player retention and one right to match card this time. If RTM is not done, then there can be four retentions. In such a situation, Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah will be automatic retention. And the third retention will be that of Kieran Pollard. The strength of MI is its continuity, and these three are the pillars of MI.


For now, there is less than a 10% chance that MI will retain Hardik. Even if he makes some explosions in the T20 World Cup, the options for this thing will be fewer. If there are four retentions or one RTM, there will be a contest between Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan for the fourth position’.

MI’s plan to oust Hardik is purely cricketing, as he is no longer a veteran all-rounder like the old one. He has not been bowling for a long time. There are speculations that due to his lower back, he will never be able to become a medium-pacer like before. He will no longer be able to bowl continuously again at a pace of more than 130KMPH. In such a situation, any team will avoid betting on them just for batting.

However, if Hardik fits into the budget of Mumbai, then the team will add him with them. An IPL insider told PTI about this,


“Yeah, there’s a market dynamic here, and MI will buy them at auction if the need arises and they fit the budget.” Talking about the order of preference, there are five players of Mumbai, Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Kieron Pollard, Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan”.

Let us tell you that there is also big news from the camp of Delhi Capitals with Mumbai Indians. It is claimed that Indian star Shreyas Iyer is looking for a leadership role. And for this, he will not hesitate to separate from DC. There are reports that Shreyas can be seen playing for some other team next season.
