Virat Kohli’s childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma has heaped massive praise on Hardik Pandya’s captaincy after India’s win in the second T20I against New Zealand in Lucknow.
The home team won the game by 6 wickets while chasing 99. He feels the all-rounder is always one step ahead of the rivals.
“Hardik Pandya has been outstanding as a captain. He leads from the front in challenging situations and doesn’t run away from responsibilities. Pandya is a smart cricketer who is ahead of the rivals,” he said on India News.
Hardik has won T20I series against Ireland, New Zealand and Sri Lanka.
Meanwhile, the series decider against the Black Caps will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Wednesday, February 1.
