Hardik Pandya, according to Sanjay Bangar, is a highly adaptable player who can be deployed in a variety of ways by Team India depending on the match situation.
Prior to India’s second T20I against South Africa in the five-match series on Sunday, former Indian batting coach Sanjay Bangar heaped admiration on star all-rounder Hardik Pandya.
The great player has been selected for the present five-match T20I series against South Africa after making his return to the Indian team for the first time in seven months.
Sanjay Bangar was questioned on Star Sports’ ‘Follow the Blues’ if Hardik was the biggest positive for Team India from the first T20I onwards, given that he thrived in a capacity other from the one he played in the IPL. He replied, “
“He’s a very versatile player who has put in a lot of effort to improve his game’s basis. You can also play him at No. 4 and No. 6 if you want. When I used to talk to Hardik, he would always remark that he wanted a good foundation and that he was really concerned about it.
That’s a significant change. When you’ve figured out your game, you’ll be able to adapt it to any situation “Bangar said.
Hardik’s ability to finish games, which he has gained from his many partnerships with former India captain MS Dhoni, was also praised by the former India batter.
“He (Hardik) has been an integral part of the Indian team’s finishing role for a long time. With MS Dhoni and other lower-order batting, he has exchanged experiences and formed partnerships. As a result, I believe he is a versatile player “he stated
During the IPL 2022, Hardik Pandya demonstrated his ability to build an innings. The Baroda all-rounder took a more cautious approach to batting, leaving the late-order big-hitting to David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, and Rashid Khan.
