Hardik Pandya led Gujarat Titans to the IPL title in their very first season itself after defeating Rajasthan Royals in the final at the Narendra Modi Stadium on Sunday (May 29). The former Mumbai Indians all-rounder was handed the responsibility of leading the newly joined franchise.
Hardik Pandya’s childhood coach revealed his conversation with the GT skipper post the “Koffee with Karan” controversy. Hardik’s ex-coach Jitender Sharma revealed how Hardik did not sleep an entire night when he met him upon coming back to India. He also stated that the GT skipper gave him assurance that something like this will never happen and claimed Hardik’s late father would be very proud of him.
“Coach, you will not hear any negative thing about me after this” Jitender recalled Hardik’s words. “He has held that word, his father would have been so proud today,” Jitender concluded.
