Hardik Pandya is currently one of the best all-rounders in the world. The fact that he gives his best in batting, bowling, and fielding makes him a cut above most of the current all-rounders in international cricket.
The productive all-rounder recently hogged the limelight when he hit the winning runs for India in the form of a maximum against Pakistan in the group stage fixture at Dubai International Stadium in Dubai.
Let’s also not forget the fact that he is also brilliant captaincy material. He has led Gujarat Titans to maiden title glory in the fifteenth edition of the Indian Premier League. Under his captaincy, Gujarat Titans made it all the way to the final and beat Rajasthan Royals.
This goes to show that Hardik Pandya is the most sought-after player in the current era because of the exceptional qualities that he brings to the table. Meanwhile, Team India were eliminated from the Asia Cup 2022 competition.
Sri Lanka beat Pakistan in the final by 23 runs to win their sixth title. The last time they won the ICC Champions Trophy was in 2013 as India beat England in the final under MS Dhoni’s leadership. It’s been almost a decade since they won the ICC title.
The upcoming T20 World Cup 2022 is not far away from going all guns blazing. It will kick off on October 16 and ends on November 13 in Australia. It will be quite interesting to see how the Men in Blue will approach the marquee event.
Meanwhile, all-rounder, Hardik Pandya was asked about the full-time captaincy. To which, he said, “Yeah! why not? If I get an opportunity in the future, I’ll be more than happy to do that, but right now we have the World Cup coming up.”
“We’re going to focus on that and make sure as a team what we’re doing, we continue (with that) and make sure that all the skillsets, which we are learning we can keep getting better at it, and at the same point of time enjoy the game as well,” he said after India beat West Indies by 4-1 in the T20I series.
