Hardik Pandya made his IPL debut for the Mumbai team back in 2015. Whereas, Krunal debuted a year later in 2016 for the Mumbai Indians as well. Both players have been an important part of the team led by Rohit Sharma.
Kolkata Knight Riders, Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab were the first teams to reach the UAE on Thursday. It is expected that Chennai Super Kings will also be leaving for the UAE on Friday.
This year’s IPL will begin from September 19 and the final of the tournament will be played on November 10. All players that are going to take part in the cash-rich league will be staying in a bio-secure bubble for the entire duration of the tournament.
