IPL 2024: There is only some time left for the Indian Premier League to start and now everyone's eyes are on the auction to be held on 19th December. Meanwhile, a revelation has come to light, in which it has been claimed that a team had directly talked to a player regarding trading, which is against the rules of IPL. The COO of Gujarat Titans claimed in an interview that fast bowler Mohammed Shami was approached by a team, but Shami remained with them.

Even before IPL 2024, Gujarat Titans suffered a setback and captain Hardik Pandya left the team and went with Mumbai Indians. But Mohammed Shami was also about to leave the team, but it could not happen. Gujarat Titans COO Colonel Arvinder Singh has informed that many teams approach for big players, but the rule in IPL is that you can approach only through the team.

But Mohammed Shami was approached directly, which is against the rules. The CEO of the team said that we came to know about it later, which is completely wrong. How can you directly approach a player or support staff like this? Let us tell you that Mohammed Shami has been the most successful bowler for Gujarat Titans, and given his performance in the ODI World Cup, which team would want to leave him.

If we talk about IPL 2024, the auction is to be held on December 19, in which around 1200 players have registered their names. Before the auction, the teams had released the list of retained and released players, after which Hardik Pandya decided to leave Gujarat and go with Mumbai. However, this deal was made between Mumbai and Gujarat team, hence there was no dispute on it. After this, Gujarat Titans have appointed young Shubman Gill as their captain.

Let us tell you that this will be the third IPL for Gujarat Titans as a team. The team has won once in its first two seasons, while finishing runner-up in one. This means that the challenge before Shubman Gill will be to take his team forward and carry it forward in the same manner which Hardik Pandya started when he was the captain.
