Hardik Pandya began his Indian Premier League career with Mumbai Indians in 2015. He spent seven years with Mumbai and won four titles in 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2020 before becoming the captain of Gujarat Titans in 2021. The Titans were allowed to choose three players from the pool released by other franchises before the mega auction, and they were fortunate enough to acquire Pandya.
Pandya shined for the Gujarat Titans and was a crucial player in the team winning the 2022 IPL title in their debut season. During his time at the Gujarat Titans, Hardik scored 833 runs in 30 innings.
