Hardik has once again returned to his all-rounder avatar and is looking in better form than ever. Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan has praised Hardik.
Irfan said on Star Sports, ‘He is a very important player, you need such a player for balance, who can bowl and bat. The quality that Hardik Pandya gives to Team India is very difficult to find. You will find very few such players in the cricket world. He showed earlier what he can do with the bat, the kind of shots he plays, it’s fantastic.

The innings he played came at the right time and he scored quick runs as the rest of the batsmen were finding it difficult to play with the old ball.
