Hardik Pandya is a vital cog in India’s scheme of issues for the T20 World Cup. Within the first T20I in opposition to Australia, that India misplaced by 4 wickets, Hardik Pandya’s batting was an enormous plus. Whereas veterans like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma didn’t hit large, Pandya scored 71* – his highest rating in T20Is after 52 innings. Then he bowled two overs, freely giving 22 runs. Former India coach Ravi Shastri thinks that Pandya is the no. 1 T20I allrounder on this planet. Nonetheless, former Pakistan cricket group captain Rashid Latif feels that Ben Stokes is forward of Hardik as allrounder.
“There isn’t any doubt that he (Hardik) is an excellent participant, however it’s a bilateral collection. You see such innings in bilateral collection. The Asia Cup concluded just lately, and it’s important to depend these performances too. I am not speaking about right now’s (Tuesday) match, however Ben Stokes is confirmed. He gained the World Cup and he gained Check matches for England,” Latif said in a video on YouTube channel ‘Caught Behind’
“So, I do not assume you possibly can even evaluate in terms of (performances) on the bottom. As a result of a trophy is a trophy. World Cup or Check matches, Ben Stokes is forward of Hardik in that. Having mentioned that, sure, a few of Hardik’s innings have been higher than Ben Stokes. However having higher innings and being higher than Stokes are two fully various things.”
India and Pakistan begin their T20 World Cup with a recreation in opposition to one another on October 23.
