Former India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh that he is sure of Hardik Pandya leading India in white-ball cricket. Bhajji has been impressed with the calm and composed nature of the all-rounder ever since he returned to the national team.

Hardik Pandya has become like MS Dhoni because of the way he places his innings.

The 28-year-old took three wickets and scored an unbeaten 33 runs off 17 balls with the help of 4 fours and a six against Pakistan.

When the team required 6 off 3, Hardik hit a six into the mid-wicket region to help India successfully complete a 148-run chase at the Dubai International Stadium.

“He should become captain and I think he will lead India in white-ball cricket. He has become like MS Dhoni as he is very calm and composed. He is batting and bowling really well,” Harbhajan Singh said to India Today.

Hardik led Gujarat Titans to IPL title and also captained India in Ireland. “He is a different type of batter. Hardik has worked hard on his fitness before returning to competitive cricket. I do see him becoming India’s skipper. I think he has got all the capabilities to be one of the most successful captains,” he added.
