Hardik Pandya is an all-rounder with a lot of talent but there’s the possibility that MI won’t keep him on the retention list. He is a key member of the Mumbai Indians and the Indian national team. Since Covid-19’s attack on India, he hasn’t played much cricket, but neither has anyone else. And there are still ups and downs. Fortunately, Hardik is in India’s main lineup for the T20 world cup due to his potential and image as an all-rounder.
However, due to his injuries, he has been unable to play for some time. Meanwhile, he has opportunities to contribute to the team’s success. He appears to have a solid reputation in T20 cricket, similar to Pollard and Dhoni in terms of batsmanship. Hardik has proven himself in a short period of time, but he hasn’t received any good results in a long time.
Ahmedabad and Lucknow would have special picks after the retention list gets out
As a result, it appears unlikely that the Mumbai Indians will keep him for the IPL 2022 season, as the news suggests that just three cricketers will be retained. Given the circumstances, MI would retain Jasprit Bumrah, Kieron Pollard, and Rohit Sharma. However, it’s possible that MI will let Pollard leave and keep Hardik instead. It will be difficult for them to make a decision, but it does not appear to be easy for anyone. In addition, the IPL 2022 will feature two additional teams, as confirmed by the BCCI.
As a result, all franchisees should prepare for the upcoming edition of the IPL. Mega Auction will undoubtedly be a game-changer and determiner of all clubs’ futures.
Before the super auction, the new franchise may be able to select three players from the pool. Given the current situation, Shreyas Iyer, Hardik Pandya, and KL Rahul have a chance to be selected, as there is a strong conviction that these players will not be selected for the retention list.
