South African batter David Miller, who played under Hardik Pandya’s captaincy in IPL 2022, opined on the latter’s leadership qualities.
He said Hardik is a serious contender to replace Rohit Sharma as a full-time captain in T20Is.
The all-rounder has an excellent track record as a captain, winning the IPL title for Gujarat Titans and leading India to a series win in Ireland and New Zealand.
“I have played under him in IPL. He is a natural leader and people follow him. He gives you the freedom to express yourself. Panday wants every player to be close to each other,” he said.
“He is very disciplined and has many attributes of a leader. In IPL, he got better as the season progressed, and I see him doing that with the Indian team.”
