Hardik Pandya’s record as captain: Is Pandya ready to lead team India?

Hardik Pandya Record As Captain

Hardik Pandya record as captain: Team India has never been able to find a player who could succeed its talisman, Kapil Dev; several appeared to have the potential to fill Dev’s shoes, but they were unable to do so for an extended period of time.  

Pandya, however, is one step ahead of all to match the greatness of the legendary Kapil Dev.  

In his 8 years of playing for Indian cricket team, Pandya has gained a lot of popularity with his all-round skills and has also proved himself to be a good leader.  

The 30-year all-rounder has already captained India in absence of regular skipper, and achieved applauds for his success. He played the ODI World Cup 2023 as vice-captain of team India. In addition, Pandya also served as the vice-captain of the T20 World Cup 2024 winning team.  

With India’s regular skipper Rohit Sharma has announced his retirement from the shortest format, Pandya has seen as the frontrunner to lead India for a longer period.
