Hardik Pandya has some amazing captaincy stats and records, whether for the Gujrat Titans in the IPL or the first t20 series as a captain in New Zealand. He has been a gentleman for India, both with the bat and the bowl and now in the role of captain.
Before he was appointed captain of the Gujrat Titans in the IPL, everyone was aware of his batting and bowling prowess. At this point, the BCCI was so convinced of his capacity for leadership that they imagined him as the team’s captain in the future. The only explanation for this is India’s poor cricket performance in the T20 World Cups in 2021 and 2022.
The BCCI was seeking a new captain who could serve as an example for other players since Rohit Sharma was under pressure as a result of his poor performance. KL Rahul was considered for leadership but could not fit in owing to his mediocre performance with the bat. Now is the period when they choose to keep Hardik Pandya on the team and offer him the position of the future Indian captain.
In addition to filling the captaincy void, Hardik Pandya was chosen for his all-around capacity to perform with the bat and bowl even when the team needed him. This was shown by Hardik in the world cup match against Pakistan when he and Virat Kohli formed a significant relationship that led to India’s historic victory over Pakistan.
