Former Team India cricketer and commentator Sanjay Manjrekar has given a big statement about Hardik Pandya, who won everyone’s heart with his brilliant captaincy in IPL 2022. He said in an ESPN Cricinfo show that Dhoni’s image is visible under Hardik’s captaincy. Gujarat Titans was participating in IPL for the first time and became champion under the captaincy of Hardik.
Hardik was the best in both batting and bowling
Manjrekar said, ‘Hardik bowled well in the final match. In batting too, he batted brilliantly throughout the season, playing at the crucial number 4. There was a glimpse of Dhoni in his captaincy. He looked very calm in every match and took decisions as per the requirement of the team. It looked like he was enjoying the captaincy and looked very calm. Only Dhoni does this.
Changes in fielding and bowling also do like Dhoni
Manjrekar further said that the way Pandya was making changes in fielding and bowling. To a large extent, Dhoni does the same. Hardik was a part of Mumbai team before Gujarat, but this year he was not retained by Mumbai.
For India to win the world cup by all means
After winning the IPL trophy, Hardik’s next target is to win the World Cup for Team India. After becoming the champion, Hardik told Star Sports, ‘I have to win the World Cup for Team India at any cost. Whatever I have for this, I am ready to give everything. I identify with Team India. It was a dream come true for me to play for Team India. It doesn’t matter how many matches I play for India, but whenever I represent my team, it will be a matter of pride for me. All the love and support I have received. He has got only to play for India. That’s why I want to win the World Cup for Team India in any case.
