"My wish, but will never happen" - Hardik Pandya names Mumbai Indians player he wants to play for Gujarat Titans
Gujarat Titans have declared themselves as potential IPL 2022 contenders in a grand fashion. They have played some serious cricket in their debut season and, as a result, they are at the top of the points table. Hardik Pandya and his men have done some of the extraordinary things this season that have impressed everyone.
Hardik has also led his team exceptionally well and used his players to the maximum effect to get the result in their favour. GT is certain to make the playoffs with four games left to play. They have already won eight matches out of ten, and with 16 points, they have qualified for the next round.
The GT skipper has got the praise of many ex-cricketers and cricket pundits for his leadership skills and for leading the new franchise with success. However, Hardik will face his former team, the Mumbai Indians, who helped him gain recognition. And just ahead of the GT and MI clash, the franchise shared a video clip featuring Hardik remembering his memories with the five-time champions.
The GT skipper revealed the name of one player from his former team that he wants into his team at the next auction. However, he also said that it is not possible before giving a small chuckle. In the video, he said that he wished for Kieron Pollard to have a great match, but GT should win. He also said that a few days back he backed the MI all-rounder and asked how he was doing.
Hardik also said that he told Pollard that he might come to the Gujatat Titans next year. He concluded, "In a joking way, I said, 'You never know, you might come to us next year!' It's my wish but I know it's never going to happen."

Gujarat Titans will lock horns with the five-time champions, Mumbai Indians, on Friday. The match will start at 7:30 pm at the Brabourne Stadium. MI are at the bottom of the table with just one win from nine matches. It will be interesting to see how Hardik will perform against his former team.
