former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir During commentary on Star Sports Hardik Pandya And Shardul Thakur Said a big deal about it. He said, ‘Shardul comes out to bat at number 8 in the Test. That is, he is a bowling all-rounder. On the other hand, talking about Pandya, he is a batting all-rounder. Shardul is still far ahead of Pandya for the Test. It is known that Shardul Thakur took 7 wickets in the first innings of the second Test played at Wanderers. Although the team was defeated in this match.
Only Stokes and Holder are the right all-rounders
Gautam Gambhir believed that a good Test all-rounder is one who can bowl with a new bowler and can also bat at number-4 or 5. Talking about the current international teams, only 2 players are capable of doing this today. It has Ben Stokes of England and Jason Holder of West Indies. He said that in T20 and ODI, a player who only bats a little or bowls a little is called an all-rounder today. But this cannot happen in Tests, because it is very difficult for a bowler to bowl 15 overs in a day. Like Andre Russell. He has been able to leave his mark only in limited overs cricket.
