A wiry young lad from a small town in Gujarat, Hardik Pandya, with his tattoos and peroxide highlights, encapsulates the charisma and swagger of the modern-day Indian cricketer. The all-rounder was impelled into the huge stage after constant openness to early evening television in the type of the Indian Chief League. A profound voice to go with the certainty and energy, and showing no sign of playing it safe, Pandya is the modern icon of audacity in the Indian side. Having gone through the hard grind of domestic cricket, Pandya shot to fame when he was picked up by an IPL franchise - a permit to make his talent notable on the enormous stage.
As several youngsters do in the modern era, Pandya announced himself to the world during the IPL, portraying his swashbuckling ability to strike the ball, outstanding fielding, and some road smart bowling that transcends the platitude 'simply turns his arm over'. He made the world sit up when he soaked in the pressure and came great in crunch situations, playing a pivotal job in the Mumbai franchise's subsequent title win, and winning two Man of the Match awards on his way. The Indian public and critics, who never fail to make comparisons, immediately had the inevitable inquiry at the tip of their tongue: Had India discovered their first fast-bowling all-rounder since Kapil Dev?
Despite being predominantly noted for his dangerous batting, Pandya is apro with the ball. In fact, it was his all-round abilities which caught the attention of the T20 franchises during the Syed Mushtaq Ali tournament culminating a national contract. Pandya's merit was appropriately rewarded when he was named in India's ODI squad for the home arrangement against New Zealand in 2016. By this time, he had chipped away at his swing bowling abilities, and was hitting the 140s regularly, troubling the batsmen with his nagging length. In fact, having been a part of the 2016 World T20, Pandya safeguarded an equation reading '2 to win off 3' against Bangladesh, bowling back of a length and short on a lethargic ish wicket, and keeping India alive in the tournament thus.
Pandya is relatively new to the Indian team and has already played some excellent knocks with the bat in ODIs, sealing off some close run-chases and scoring fast runs when required. With the ability to flood when required and target a particular bowler, he has pulled off 20-run overs in pressure situations and remains a vital cog in the ODI fold. With an aging MS Dhoni shifting into a sheet anchor mode rather than his usual swashbuckling mode, Pandya is a crucial factor in the team and can frame a vital pairing with Dhoni, by batting around his stability as his apprentice to finish off games. His technique though, however helpful in ODIs, isn't the awesome non-genuine wickets, and on the off chance that he picks the path of Test cricket, he needs to make himself more compact and strong in terms of batting fundamentals. His bowling has taken giant steps, as he has consummated the art of swing and has sorted out the optimal trajectory for his speed as well to impart maximum lateral development ready.
Regardless of whether Pandya is India's next Kapil Dev, he certainly beings a truly necessary balance to the side. On the off chance that he remains grounded amidst all the glamor, and shapes his game under the able guidance of his seniors and coaches, he is destined for greatness. As of the present moment, it will be fascinating to watch the exuberance of blending with the maturity that accompanies insight as the nation gazes toward this charismatic young talent in its mission for those subtle overseas wins.
After a grueling 2018, Pandya has come out a more mature cricketer, starting from his happy-go-fortunate 93 in Cape Town, to his 5-for and half-century in India's just win in the Test arrangement against England. Pandya's bowling, particularly in Tests, has progressed significantly, with his extra skip from a back of a length, and particularly his ability to swing the ball away from the right-hander. Despite not bowling the best conveyances at times, he appears to have an uncanny knack of dismissing set batsmen, perhaps even established batsmen. His batting, although incredibly aggressive, actually needs a lot of work as he continues to exhibit a single-dimensional, all-out attack mode to his batting - an approach that has often failed in more bowler-accommodating conditions.
After a blended year of greatness and heartbreak, Pandya was hampered by a serious back injury during the Asia Cup in 2018 which controlled him out of the tour of Australia. To make things more awful, he got a lot of flak when an episode of a talk show aired in India, in which Pandya, along with Rahul, were called out for their misogynistic remarks about ladies, and were suspended by the Board of Control for Cricket in India for helpless direct and tarnishing the image of Indian cricket. The ban has been lifted since the incident. Pandya, however, returned to the side after a lot of internal conflict in the board, for the ODI arrangement against New Zealand and performed admirably, particularly with the ball and in the field. He remains a vital cog in India's 2019 World Cup plans, providing a truly necessary balance in the side, as India finally manage to get their hands on a fast-bowling all-rounder interestingly since the Great Kapil Dev.
