Hardik Pandya, who made Gujarat Titans IPL champion on the basis of his captaincy, has to learn a lot to become the captain of Team India. This is to say of former Indian fast bowler and commentator Irfan Pathan. Irfan was in Bhopal on Monday and had come here to attend a private event.

The 37-year-old former all-rounder said in this program, ‘Pandya has undoubtedly captained the top class, but there is a difference between the captaincy of the IPL franchise team and the captaincy of the Indian team. The captaincy of the league is only for two months. Whereas the captaincy of the country is different.

Irfan also praised the decision to make KL Rahul the captain of Team India and said that against South Africa we will get to see a different captaincy.

India at par with Australia, England and Pakistan in fast bowling
On the pace battery (Umran, Mohsin, Kuldeep, Arshdeep, famous Krishna) that came out of the current season, the former fast bowler said that we are very lucky that we have got such a good army of fast bowling. Due to which we have come at par with Australia, England in terms of fast bowling. Earlier we used to look at Australia, England and Pakistan in terms of fast bowling, but now the eyes of the whole world are on us. We are able to produce that pace battery. Talking about the famous, that boy throws the ball at the speed of 148, the line-length is also good, he is of long height, which gives bounce. We have a wealth of talent.

RR didn’t have depth in batting
On the question of GT’s strong and RR’s weak side in the final match, Irfan said that Gujarat’s strongest side is its bowling attack. Which makes him richer than others. His finishers also did a good job. At the same time, the RRK batting lineup did not have that much depth. I am talking about, where Ashwin plays at number 6-7, he batted well, but he was a bit slow. When critical situation comes and if you don’t have fire power then you have 15-20 runs less. Which happened in yesterday’s final match.

Pathan has cited batting as the reason for Rajasthan's loss in the final.

Umran is a strong bowler, will learn now
Umran Malik is a strong bowler, will learn now. Looking in the other world, there are one or two bowlers. Which can bowl the ball at a speed of 157 km/h. Fergusson has done the work Nokia can do. There is a lot of potential in Umran. He who has potential will also make mistakes. Because he is young and hasn’t played much first class cricket.

When I was a mentor in Jammu and Kashmir and was preparing it. Then his jump out was very high, which would spoil the line. As the jump out straightened out, the pace also increased. His control off-line became better. The ball started coming on the seam. But, much more work remains to be done. I am sure the coach, captain and senior bowlers will handle him. Because hitting the ball on Rohit Sharma’s head is not an easy task as he likes the pull very much. Umran’s ball hit his head too. Even Rohit took time to survive.

Suryakumar best at number 4, Pandya also a good option
On Hardik’s question, Pathan said that he is a brilliant all-rounder and is coming back from injury. In such a situation, his performance in the next tournament will be worth watching. If all goes well, I think Hardik can play at No.4 in the top order in the World Cup. By the way, Suryakumar is the best at this number. If he is present then Pandya can be in the role of 5th or finisher.

My career was cut short by injury, not Chappell
On his career, Pathan said that my career has been cut short due to injury and not because of Chappell. People forcibly make the chapel a screen board.
