Hardik Pandya has been in good batting form in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season and finds himself in contention for the prestigious Orange Cap. The all-rounder smashed an unbeaten knock of 87 runs off 52 balls (including eight fours and four sixes) to help Gujarat Titans (GT) defeat Rajasthan Royals (RR) by 37 runs at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai, on Thursday.
