Team India: Harbhajan Singh, the former off-spinner of the Indian cricket team, has described a player as the future captain of Team India. This player seems to be a strong contender to become the captain of Team India. 28-year-old all-rounder Hardik is being seen as India’s future captain after leading Gujarat Titans to their IPL title in the first season.
This player will prove to be the best captain for Team India
Harbhajan said in an interview to PTI, “One of the biggest things about this year’s IPL has been Hardik Pandya as the captain of Gujarat Titans and the way he has led the team to the coveted title is commendable. His spirit and positive captaincy are indications that he can lead Team India in future.
Harbhajan Singh told the name
After questioning the players bought by the titans in the players’ auction, experts did not consider the team as the contenders for the title, but under the leadership of Hardik, the team won the title by performing brilliantly. Captain Hardik impressed everyone with his captaincy. Apart from taking three wickets in the final against Rajasthan Royals, he also scored 34 runs. More than one lakh spectators were present to watch this match in the world’s largest stadium in Motera.
Kohli played great cricket
The former off-spinner, who has taken 417 Test and 269 One Day International (ODI) wickets against in-form Virat Kohli, said the fall in form is temporary and the veteran batsman will make a strong comeback soon. He said, ‘Kohli is such a cricketer who always gives his best when he is on the field. Looking at the wonderful cricket he has played over the years, I am sure he will be back soon.
Indian team heavily dependent on young players
For the five-match T20 International series against South Africa, the Indian team management is relying heavily on young players who have done well in this year’s IPL. Harbhajan said this is a great opportunity for Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Umran Malik and Arshdeep Singh to impress at the international level ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup to be held in Australia in October-November.
