Coming from Baroda, Hardik Pandya came into the ranks after his impressive exploits for Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League (IPL). His impressive striking power and ability to bowl some handy overs earned him a spot in the national side.
On the international stage as well, Hardik earned reputation in short span. He played some good knocks here and there and also improved significantly in the bowling department. As a result, he became an integral part of the team.
After Virat Kohli’s decision to step down from leadership position, Rohit Sharma was appointed as full time skipper alongside Hardik taking up the vice-captaincy position in the limited-over cricket.
With Rohit Sharma’s future in jeopardy, the all-rounder is being considered as the future captain of the Men in Blue. In this article, we will look at Hardik Pandya’s stats as a captain in the international cricket and also the IPL.
