ENG VS IND: India all-rounder Hardik Pandya has been in sublime form for the last few months ever since he started leading his side in the Indian Premier League (IPL) this season. Moreover, he has maintained his form and became the first Indian cricketer to score a fifty and claim a four-wicket haul in a T20I match. However, Hardik achieved the feat in the first T20I against England at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton on Thursday and helped India register a huge 50-run win and go 1-0 up in the three-match T20I series as well.

While his form is a great relief for Team India, it will interesting to see how he will do when Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, and Ravindra Jadeja return to the squad of things. Someone like Deepak Hooda, who is in stunning form, might have to make way for Virat Kohli, and either Ishan Kishan or Dinesh Karthik may have to stay at the bench to accommodate Rishabh Pant as well.

“Sir wo toh pata nahi, wo toh management ka hi kaam hai. Main toh bas India ka ek all-rounder ki tarha khelta hu. mereko jo bolte hai wo main karta hu. aur usse zyada dimagh lagata nahi. (Sir, I don’t know much about management’s thinking. I’m just playing as an all-rounder. I do as the management says without thinking much.),” Hardik said when he was asked about former players’ return ahead of the second match.

However, Hardik Pandya scored a blistering 33-ball 51, helping the visitors to post 198 for eight after they opted to bat first. Hardik then returned with the figures of 4/33 as well. He also added that he will give equal importance to his batting and bowling. He again shared that he doesn’t think much about his future as he is currently focusing on his game for Team India as well.

“This is a white-ball season in a way. There are a couple of world cups coming so for me, it would be better if I can play as kuch white-ball as possible when the opportunity comes to play Tests then definitely but right now the focus is to play as many matches that come my and perform my 100% in those. If I can’t then I will go out, I won’t anybody’s place,” he concluded.
