“Cricketers like him come once in many years”: Pollard’s massive praise for Hardik

Kieron Pollard on Hardik: Kieron Pollard made a significant remark about India’s star while discussing the player’s return to the international set up earlier this year.

Hardik Pandya, India’s star batsman, has made a comeback in international cricket in recent months. The all-rounder returned to the team after captaining the Gujarat Titans to the Indian Premier League title in his first season, producing consistent performances with both bat and ball. Hardik had also led India in a two-T20I series against Ireland and is a member of the squad for the T20 World Cup, which begins on October 16. 

Former Mumbai Indians teammate Kieron Pollard praised Pandya as he made a successful comeback to the Indian team. Pandya had a “rough time” before his IPL comeback, according to Pollard, because he took time away from professional cricket to focus on his recovery. Pandya hadn’t played for India since the T20 World Cup the previous year. 

“Hardik is still in the works.” He had been going through a rough patch for the past few months. “Once again, we have seen the fruits of his labor,” Kieron Pollard on Hardi:.

“I’ve known him for a few years and understand how he thinks and functions.” What he did in international cricket and for the Gujarat Titans does not surprise me.” 

Pollard also stated that cricketers such as Hardik Pandya come “once in a lifetime”. But that fans and experts should let him enjoy his game and not burden him with expectations. 

“All I want is for him to do well on the cricket field.” Let us simply enjoy him. “We put them on a pedestal, and when they don’t deliver, we drag them down,” Pollard explained. Also He’s a fantastic cricketer. Cricketers like him only appear every so often. So, once again, I only wish him luck.” 

Team India will return to action on October 23 against Pakistan in the opening match of the T20 World Cup; however, the team will also participate in ICC warm-up games against Australia and New Zealand prior to the tournament.
