After the soul-crushing defeat by 10-wicket against England at the Adelaide Oval in the semi-final, fans want captain Rohit Sharma to be axed and want Hardik Pandya to be in. Know, why Hardik is the right choice as the captain.
Age on Hardik’s Side: Rohit is 35, whereas Hardik is 29 and has a long career ahead. This is one major reason why Hardik should be given the cap.
Hardik, A Proven Leader: Hardik backed players who others may have overlooked and they delivered. One of them is Matthew Wade.
The Allrounder Advantage: “Devastated, gutted, hurt. Tough to take, for all of us. To my teammates, I’ve enjoyed the bond that we built – we fought for each other every step of the way. Thank you to our support staff for their endless dedication and hard work for months on end,” the star all-rounder said in a tweet after India’s loss.
“To our fans who backed us everywhere we went, we’re forever grateful. It wasn’t meant to be but we’ll reflect and keep fighting,” he added.
