Mumbai Indians paying INR 15 crore as Hardik Pandya salary: Hardik Pandya is ready to leave Gujarat Titans and go to Mumbai Indians. Hardik Pandya, who made Gujarat the champion in IPL 2022, can be seen playing for his old franchise Mumbai in the next season. However, Mumbai is spending crores for this. According to media reports, Hardik's fee is 15 crores and Mumbai is also giving a fixed amount to Gujarat.

According to a report in ESPNcricinfo, Mumbai India is not only paying Rs 15 crore as fee to Gujarat but also a transfer fee for Hardik Pandya, who is ready to leave the Gujarat Titans. However, how much this transfer fee is, the report does not mention this. Hardik gets up to 50 percent of the transfer fee.

According to the report, if this trade happens then it will be the biggest trade in IPL history. However, no franchise has yet made any public comment on this.

If Mumbai Indians do this, then the biggest challenge in front of them is their purse. After the last auction, Mumbai had only Rs 0.05 crore left. For the upcoming auction, the franchises will get an additional Rs 5 crore in their purse. This means that Mumbai Indians need to release many high-paid players to trade Hardik Pandya. The retention deadline ends on November 26 at 4 pm.

Hardik Pandya led Gujarat Titans to the title in 2022. Gujarat Titans played their first game in the year 2022. In the year 2023, under the leadership of Hardik, Gujarat Titans made it to the IPL final for the second time. But in the final, they had to face defeat of Chennai Super Kings. In both seasons, the Titans, led by Hardik, were at the top of the points table after the league stage.

Hardik Pandya scored 30 runs in 41 innings in two seasons played for Gujarat Titans with an average of 65.133 and a strike rate of 49.833. He also took 8 wickets at an economy of 1.11. Hardik, who is currently injured, suffered an ankle injury in the match against Bangladesh during the ODI World Cup league stage.
