Former India cricketer Suresh Raina has lauded natural leader Hardik Pandya for leading Gujarat Titans from the front in the TATA IPL 2022. Once again, playing their A-Game, Gujarat Titans defeated Rajasthan Royals in Qualifier 1 to become the first finalists of the Toughest T20 League.
Speaking on Cricket Live on Star Sports, Raina said, “He’s looked very fresh ever since he made his comeback from the injury. He’s understood his game after making a comeback on the pitch. He’s doing well with the bat and ball.”
“I feel a leader was hiding in him somewhere, but with the support of his family, it is finally coming out and how. He’s a born leader, and the way he’s marshalled his troops for Gujarat Titans is commendable. Gujarat has done so well because of Hardik’s leadership and how he’s backed the players,” he added.
