Hardik Pandya: Former India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar said that I am very surprised by the change in cricket of all-rounder Hardik Pandya. Pandya changed himself before the 2022 IPL season and emerged as one of the best cricketers. Pandya led the new team Gujarat Titans in the IPL 2022 season, and this team took the title of the season.
Pandya surprised everyone
At the same time, Pandya led the Indian team against Ireland. There too he led the team to success in the series. After this, he played an important role in winning the T20 and ODI series in India by defeating Jos Buttler-led England.
Manjrekar indicated that Gujarat Titans took a big risk by appointing Pandya as the captain of the new IPL franchise, which was questioned by many critics. However, Pandya not only encouraged the players there, but also gave a befitting reply to the critics.
Manjrekar praised fiercely
Manjrekar said, ‘Pandya has completely changed his cricket, not only in batting but in bowling he has worked hard, due to which he is getting success. It was a wildcard that the franchise played. First to retain Pandya and then to make him the captain. However, before that he was struggling with his fitness problem.
‘His batting remained an issue for the earlier franchise Mumbai Indians.’ Manjrekar also felt that the ambitious person always has a good chance to excel and he can see that quality in Pandya.
