BCCI To Give More Responsibility To Hardik Pandya
Meanwhile, in the latest development, star all-rounder Hardik Pandya is likely to be Team India’s vice-captain for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022. Yes, you read that right.
Well, according to a report in Insidesport.in, Hardik Pandya will be named as the vice-captain of team India when the BCCI announces the squad for the T20 World Cup 2022. A senior BCCI official was quoted as saying by InsideSport:
“Hardik is a world-class player and it’s great to have him back in the team at full fitness. Whether he will be named vice-captain is up to the selectors. But he is already a leader in the group. As an all-rounder, he understands both situations. He has outstanding leadership skills and we saw that in the IPL. He will surely do well,”
Hardik Made A Blockbuster Comeback
Hardik Pandya impressed everyone with his blockbuster comeback to the Indian cricket team. He made his way back to the Indian cricket team, riding on the success of his brilliant performances in the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League where he led his team Gujarat Titans to its maiden title.
In India’s series against South Africa, he was named Rishabh Pant’s deputy after KL Rahul was ruled out. Later in the same month, he was named as the captain of the side for the two-match T20I series against Ireland. He is currently playing the role of India’s vice-captain for the ongoing T20I series against West Indies ahead of Rishabh and he looks all set to retain his spot permanently
Hardik is currently in the form of his life. He once again played a huge role in the success of the Indian cricket team in the recently concluded 3-match ODI series against England.
