Gujarat Titans (GT) skipper Hardik Pandya has joined his team’s camp in Ahmedabad to commence preparations ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 season.
The GT franchise made its IPL debut last year, along with Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), and went on to win the trophy under Pandya’s inspired leadership.
The star all-rounder represented Team India in the recently concluded three-match home ODI series against Australia. Hardik Pandya led the team to victory in the first match in Mumbai in the absence of regular skipper Rohit Sharma. However, Australia made a comeback and won the next two games to win the series by a 2-1 margin.
The Titans updated their fan base on Pandya’s arrival by sharing a couple of pictures on their official Twitter handle.
Pandya’s son Agastya and his wife Natasha also accompanied him to GT’s training camp for the upcoming season. The Gujarat franchise shared the following post and captioned it:
