Hardik Pandya is one of the popular cricketers. With little captaincy experience under his belt, Hardik led Gujarat Titans to the title in their maiden IPL season. Hardik was the leading scorer for the Titans with 487 runs at an average of 44.27 and a strike rate of 131.26. As per reports in Espncricinfo, India’s head coach Rahul Dravid praised Hardik.
“Hardik is a fantastic cricketer with both bat and ball – we have seen that for India in the past obviously,” Dravid said. “He has been very successful in white-ball cricket and has shown some really good form in this IPL as well. So it’s very pleasing to have someone of that quality that we can choose from.” “Without giving too much away – I’m not going to be telling the batting order before the game starts – but in general, sometimes the role that you play for your franchise matches with the role that you play for India, but sometimes you have to play slightly different roles for different teams.
“And it’s not only about Hardik. For all the players, some of the roles they played for their IPL franchises might be slightly different to the roles that we are expecting here based on our team combination.”
