Before the match against Chennai Super Kings, the Gujarat Titans, the team flying in this year’s IPL, got bad news. Team captain Hardik Pandya will not be able to play in this match due to a groin injury. Without him, Gujarat would have bowled against Chennai.

Pandya suffered a groin injury in the match against Rajasthan Royals. That is why Gujarat has to play without a captain. Rashid Khan took the toss on Sunday (April 18) instead of Pandya. The Afghan star will lead the team in this match. When he came to toss, he said, ‘Hardik has a groin injury. So he is not being played in this match. He will rest. I hope he will be fit in the next match and join the team. “I am very excited to be in this position,” said Rashid,

It’s kind of a dream come true for me. So I want to learn as much as I can and give 100 percent. Matthew Wade is not playing either. Riddhiman Saha is in the XI. It’s just a matter of balancing Hardik’s absence. “

Aljari Joseph got a chance in the team in the absence of Hardik. However, there was no change in the Chennai XI. They started batting with the XI of the previous match.
