Hardik will b having the opportunity to give a return gift to all his fans by hitting fours and sixes in their league match against table-toppers Delhi Capitals (DC) in Abu Dhabi on Sunday. MI has eight points from six matches and is currently standing at the second position only behind DC who has been in terrific form, facing only one defeat thus far.
However, a win in Sunday’s top-of-the-table clash will help Mumbai Indians reclaim the numero uno position in the IPL 2020 Points Table and they would hope Hardik comes to the party on his birthday.
