Former Aussie player Brad Hogg has named Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya and New Zealand batter Daryl Mitchell as the two players who have impressed him a lot over the last month.
According him, Hardik is the most valuable T20 cricketer at present and lauded Mitchell for his performance against England.
The 28-year-old Indian cricketer is currently playing against South Africa in the ongoing five-match T20I series. He made a comeback to the national team after his magnificent display in IPL 2022. Hardik led Gujarat Titans to IPL title in their maiden season.
“Hardik Pandya should be captain of this T20. He proved his worth in the IPL. Hardik won tough matches and he wants to deliver with the bat and ball,” he said.
“In the first match he was able to hit the boundary from ball one and not many people can do that. Hardik can bat in the top order as well. He is the most valuable T20 cricketer in the world right now,” he added.
Hardik hit an unbeaten 31 runs with the help of 3 sixes and 2 fours at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi.
