Gujarat will be seen in New Jersey in their next match.
Hardik Pandya openly told the reason about the new jersey.
New Delhi. The 16th season of IPL is almost half over. Teams are constantly struggling to stay in the playoff race. One of those names is also that of the defending champions Gujarat Titans, which rests on the threshold of the playoffs. After losing to Mumbai on 12th May, Gujarat is now looking for just one win in 2 matches. Hardik Pandya and Co. landed in Wankhede with the hope of defeating Mumbai and entering the playoffs. But the fire coming out of Suryakumar Yadav’s bat pushed Gujarat to work harder.
The Gujarat team will now play its next match against Hyderabad on 15th May. The team is going to be seen in a different form in this match. It was confirmed on Twitter by the franchise that the Gujarat players will not appear in their blue jerseys in the next match. Hardik Pandya & Co. will be seen in a new colored jersey on 15th May. The franchise has taken this decision to make people aware against cancer. Team captain Hardik Pandya has also given his reaction while telling about the lavender jersey.
This is our way of showing solidarity – Hardik Pandya
Not Rinku Singh or Tilak Verma! This batsman will soon enter Team India, predicts Smith
Hardik said about the jersey, ‘Cancer is a battle fought by millions of people in India and around the world. As a team, we feel responsible to raise awareness about this deadly disease. Wearing the lavender jersey is our way of showing solidarity with cancer patients, survivors and their families. We hope that our actions will inspire others to take preventive measures and support those fighting this battle.
