Hardik Pandya is one of the most exciting young cricketers in the world. In the last 12 months or so, he has worked extremely hard on his game and established a special place for himself in Indian cricket team, specially in limited overs cricket.
Pandya is a very useful cricketer who can contribute in all three departments of the game. As of now, he is considered as a hard-hitting lower order batsman who can give a good fast bowling option to his captain. He plays like like a floater in the batting order and gives India an attacking option with the bat specially in ODI cricket.
But, he is also a very good fielder. Probably, one of the best in the world. In the first match of the ongoing T20I series between India and New Zealand, Hardik Pandya took one of the best outfield catches you will ever see. Martin Guptill played a lofted drive that went right in the middle of long on and long off but Pandya came runnings all the way to his right and took an absolute blinder.
Pandya sprinted as fast as he could and timed his dive to perfection and took a clan catch. Watch it here:
