If there is one thing that separates Hardik Pandya from other young cricketers, it is his immense self-belief. The flamboyant Baroda all-rounder never lets pressure affect his game, but instead relishes such situations. A big hitter and a fast-bowling all-rounder, Hardik ticks all the boxes that a team desires from an all-rounder. It was no surprise that he was fast-tracked into the Indian ODI and T20 side after a successful run in the IPL 2015. Hardik has worked both on batting and bowling, to secure the spot of the all-rounder. His sharp fielding makes him a complete package.
Pandya averages 29.90 in 54 ODIs with the bat and he also has a test hundred. His bowling average of 40.64 in ODIs is on a higher side with 54 wickets to his name while he has taken 17 wickets in 12 Tests at 31.05. He is terrific with his bat under pressure and his fielding is magnificent. His bowling has led to the breaking of some great partnerships which has proved beneficial to the team.
Who wouldn’t want a win oriented all-rounder in the team!
