The ongoing series marked Hardik Pandya’s captaincy debut for the Indian team at the International level and he passed the first test with flying colors. The Indian side won the first T20I match, defeating Ireland by seven wickets in Dublin to take a 1-0 lead in the two-match series.

The star cricketer has been receiving praises from all corners for not just making a sensational return with both the bat and the ball but also for his brilliant captaincy. While everyone is all praises for the sensational all-rounder, Hardik has managed to upset the fans of Rohit Sharma.

Well, on the eve of the first T20I, Hardik made a comment that hasn’t gone down well with the Rohit fans. Hardik Pandya, who recently guided debutants Gujarat Titans to their maiden IPL title win in their inaugural season last month, said that he had learned many things from MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli. He had said:

Addressing the reporters at the presser ahead of 1st T20I, Hardik said: “I have taken lots of things from Kohli and Dhoni – at the same time, I wanted to be natural as a captain – I like to (be) practical and take decisions that way”.

Pandya Is Getting Trolled

Well, the fact that Hardik Pandya didn’t give any credit to Rohit Sharma has left the fans fuming. Notably, Rohit backed Hardik during the initial phase of his career and also gave him the stage and guided him as he made a mark in the Indian Premier League, playing for Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians.
