Stop comparing Hardik with Kapil, he is nowhere near to former captain

One good all-round performance can lead to comparison. Hardik Pandya was the shining star in the first Test match against South Africa, contributing with bat and ball. The superlative show at Newlands has put him in the bracket of Kapil Dev, this is what fans have been saying after watching Hardik’s display.

The conclusion is fast, with some calling it inaccurate as Hardik is a veteran of few games while Kapil Dev had showed his match winning magic for almost throughout his career.

Karsan Ghavri, who was Kapil Dev’s bowling partner once, has not only ridiculed this comparison but has stated that Pandya is miles away from becoming somewhat like Kapil Dev.

Hardik Pandya is nowhere near Kapil Dev. And, even if he has to reach there, he has got a long, long way to go. It’s a very difficult comparison, but (Hardik) he is nowhere near Kapil Dev right now," he said.

“Time will tell how far he (Hardik) can reach close to Kapil’s achievement or whatever Kapil has done.”
