Hardik Pandya has grown in stature since making a comeback to international cricket. Apart from his all-rounder performances, Hardik has become one of the best captains in the shortest format.
He led Gujarat Titans to IPL title in 2022. Hardik has won three T20I series with the Men in Blue. Pandya-led team defeated Ireland, New Zealand and Sri Lanka.
He revealed that he had captained a team only once in the under 16 level. “I just led one team and had no experience of captaincy. Everyone told me to focus on my game,” said Hardik Pandya.
He credited Ashish Nehra for making him a good captain. Nehra is the head coach of Gujarat Titans. “Ashish Nehra made a big difference in my life. Working with him at Gujarat Titans has been a blessing for me. We have similar thought process and style when it comes to cricket. I needed a backing from someone,” he added.
