Hardik Pandya His performance as the captain of the Gujarat Titans in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 impressed everyone. In his first season, he performed with both bat and ball to lead his team to the title. In the final against Rajasthan Royals, Pandya scored 3/17 in four overs and then scored a crucial 34 runs.

A long IPL, if he manages to get four overs, it will be great, but if it is made slowly, it will be better. Need to keep a close eye on

Pandya has returned to the Indian cricket squad after the 2021 T20 World Cup and his performance will be closely watched.
