“Don’t Play This Sport To Show Anything To Anybody”: Hardik Pandya Ahead Of India-Ireland T20I Series

Hardik Pandya There has been a revelation in recent days with some great cricket for the IPL and the national team. He led the Gujarat Titans from the front to help the new franchise win the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. He was also the “Player of the Match” with the All-Round Show in the final. Then in the recently concluded India-South Africa T20I series, Pandya batted responsibly and impressed everyone. He will now lead the Indian cricket team in two T20I series against Ireland starting on Sunday. Before the game, he was asked how he wanted to prove his worth because after the series, when the seniors return, he will not be the captain.

Pandya gave a stern answer to this question. “I am not here to show anything to anyone. I have the opportunity to lead India, it is a big thing for me. I do not play this game to show anything to anyone. I am good enough, let me see. In the future, more than anything else, I’m just focusing on what I can bring to the series, “Pandya said.

Pandya added that the team could debut young players in the series, though the focus would be on playing the best XI.

“We want to give people a chance, but at the same time we want to play with the best XI. But there will be a situation where we will give people a cape. It’s about making sure that when we park. I will go. We have the best XI playing. Therefore, attention will be paid to it, “Pandya added.
