Former India player Aakash Chopra has stated that Gujarat Titans’ skipper Hardik Pandya brings an unknown element in IPL 2022.
Pandya, Rashid Khan and Shubman Gill were picked by Titans in the draft ahead of the IPL 2022 mega auction. Hardik was given the captaincy responsibilities as well even though he doesn’t have any experience of leading an IPL franchise.
In a video shared on his YouTube channel, Aakash opined on Hardik’s captaincy.
“There are a lot of expectations from Gujarat Titans. Hardik Pandya is leading for the first time. What he will bring as a captain, God only knows. He is a very good player, who likes to bat and bowl. Hardik likes to be in the thick of action.”
Chopra further added that Hardik would like to lead from the front.
“It seems he will lead from the front and will ask everyone to follow his instructions. That is the kind of energy he is going to bring.”
Hardik always had a word with his captain when he played for Team India. The star all-rounder likes to contribute in all the departments of the game.
