The trade, believed to be the biggest trade in IPL, is expected to be a cash-only transfer deal wherein Mumbai Indians would pay Rs 15 crore to Pandya, according to ESPNcricinfo.

He might also receive 50 per cent of the undisclosed fee that Mumbai will pay the Titans.

Under Pandya, the Titans came out as champions in 2022 and as runners-up this year. When he was with Mumbai Indians, the team won the title in 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2020.
