Pandya has been bowling as well as he has in his entire career and has rejoined the team fully fit. He has bowled in all facets of the game and, when batting, has even batted at position four in pivotal games. He won India the game by batting up the order against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup match.

The Indian management gained a prospective candidate for the captaincy in white-ball forms thanks to his time as captain of Gujarat Titans in the IPL 2022. He scored runs and took wickets while playing for the Titans in their inaugural IPL season, which they won. This was essentially Hardik Pandya 2.0 after his injury recovery. He finished the season with 8 wickets and a 487 run average.

According to reports in Cricketaddictor, the BCCI had to take into consideration his leadership potential because they recognized it.

He has already been the captain of the team in T20I matches against Ireland and New Zealand, winning both series. It just serves to confirm both his value as an all-rounder and as a white-ball player for the current Indian side.

The insider also said Hardik Pandya is ready to take Rohit Sharma’s spot as India’s next white-ball player. How long Rohit will serve as captain will depend on the composition of the next committee and how soon it will be appointed.

The management is considering replacing him sooner rather than later for a number of reasons, including his history of injuries and frequent absences from international cricket.
