Hardik Pandya’s emotional video, says ‘All Good things must come to an end


Days after all the IPL teams have announced their retention, more and more players are now paying tribute to their franchises who were unable to retain them. Before it was Rashid Khan and David Warner. Now Hardik Pandya, who was a part of the Mumbai franchise has released an emotional video on Instagram, depicting all the happy memories right from when he was chosen for MI in the auction.

Mumbai retained Rohit Sharma, Bumrah, Surya Kumar Yadav, and Kieron Pollard. The captain, Bumrah, and coach Zaheer Khan expressed the disappointment in having to let go of the core players that the team was built around. Rohit Sharma said with the host broadcaster during the IPL retention program, that they will try to get back most of the MI players in the upcoming mega auction.

Pandya, shared a video on his Instagram handle. He captioned the post

“”I’ll carry these memories with me for the rest of my life, I’ll carry these moments with me for the rest of my life. The friendships I’ve made, the bonds that have been formed, the people, the fans, I’ll always be grateful. I’ve grown not just as a player but as a person. I came here as a youngster with big dreams – we won together, we lost together, we fought together. Every moment with this team has a special place in my heart. They say all good things must end but @mumbaiindians will remain in my heart forever,”

Pandya has been with the Mumbai Indians ever since his debut in the IPL in 2015. The middle-order allrounder has played a total of 92 matches so far and has scored 1476 runs at an average of 27.33 and a strike rate of nearly 154. He is widely remembered for his 31 balls 61 run blitz which helped the MI to remain in the top 4 in 2015 IPL season.

Not all over for the all-rounder

The mega-auctions are likely to happen in the second or third week of January and it is very likely that Mumbai Indians will go for Hardik Pandya, who has played such a key role for the MI in winning four IPL titles. Pandya and Surya Kumar Yadav were the main contenders for the third spot, however, the franchise decided to go with SKY. Daniel Vettori, earlier in conversation to the Cricinfo, commented that the only reason that seems likely why the franchise let go of Hardik was the monetary issue as the all-rounder may be wanting the second spot of retention. The former New Zealand captain believed that Sharma and Bumrah were the right choices for the first two contenders.
