“No Hardik Pandya to tell…”Ex Indian star share his views on why is Hardik’s absence good for Titans

A new era has started for the Gujrat Titans under the leadership of Shubhman Gill. The journey so far has been bittersweet, as the Gujrat Titans started their campaign with a victory over the Mumbai Indians, which was followed by a loss against the Gujrat Titans.

With Hardik’s departure, there has been talk of Shubhman Gill, the captain. However, team India’s former pacer S. Sreesanth feels that not having hardik pandya is actually very good for the Titans.

Sreesanth said, “There is no Hardik in the Gujarat Titans to tell the bowlers what to bowl. Sometimes you need to give the bowler the freedom to bowl. This time the captain is Gill, and I’m sure Ashish Bhai (Ashish Nehra) will say, ‘Let them bowl’. Bowlers will also take responsibility with a young captain, and sometimes this is the advantage of having a young captain.”

Gujarat’s skipper Shubman Gill had a forgetful outing against CSk, as the batter was dismissed after scoring eight off five deliveries.

Speaking of the same, Gill said, “They outplayed us when we were batting; their execution was spot on. We backed ourselves to get a decent score in the powerplay, and once we didn’t, we were always playing catch-up. It was unfortunate for us. In T20, you can always talk about 10-15 runs here or there; at the end of the day, it’s about how much they got. On this wicket, we were expecting to chase 190–200. I think it’s a great learning experience for the bowlers.”

Gill further added, “I think it’s better to have this kind of game early on in the tournament rather than in the middle or late. We always expected to chase 190-200; it was a really good wicket. We felt like we let ourselves down while batting. (On captaincy) Lots of new learnings, new experiences, and different things. It’s exciting to captain a team like the Gujarat Titans; we’ve made it to the finals in the last couple of years, so it’s very exciting.”
