Virat Kohli’s coach Rajkumar Sharma is amazed at the news of Hardik Pandya leading Ahmedabad franchise in IPL 2022.
Hardik Pandya was not retained by Mumbai Indians ahead of the mega auction and he was also dropped from Team India due to form and fitness issues.
Though, he refused to pass a judgment on the same. Speaking on the Khelneeti podcast, Rajkumar said – “Hardik has never been viewed as captaincy material. It has come as a surprise for all. I still feel he is India’s best all-rounder, who can win you games from impossible situations. He has done the same many times. Regarding captaincy, I am sure the franchise must have discussed things with him and would have perhaps liked his ideas. But only time will tell how good he is and whether he is cut out for captaincy.”
