T20 World Cup: “Is It Possible Hardik becomes next Indian Captain in place of KL Rahul”, Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis
We saw the Struggling of KL Rahul in the T20 World Cup 2022, as we know he is the vice-captain of team India. Whereas Hardik Pandya was performing exceptionally in this World Cup despite showing his all-rounder performance. India is looking for a future Captain who can lead the team in any situation, he should have good skills in all aspects of batting, fielding, and bowling too.
Hardik Pandya in the Indian Premier League Captained and managed the team Gujarat Titans, as a Captain, he won his first title in the year 2022. Hardik did well with bat and ball, in the IPL 2022 showing his batting performance as a middle-order batsman when coming to the bowling department, Hardik was very fantastic with the new balls troubling the batsman with swinging incoming and outgoing deliveries.

Former Pakistan captains Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis have backed Hardik Pandya to take over the role of the captaincy of India in the near future.
Hardik Pandya is the most important cog in India’s T20 wheel. He struck 40 off 37 balls in a partnership of 113 for the fifth wicket with Virat Kohli in India’s incredible four-wicket win over Pakistan in their T20 World Cup opener.
“Hardik Pandya ko agar aap dekhe, pehli Dafa usne shayad captaincy ki hai, IPL main, and the way he led the team. Unhone IPL jeeti hai (Hardik Panya has captained for the first time in the IPL and led his team to the title),” said Wasim Akram in conversation with A Sports.
Akram also said that Pandya’s self-belief played a pivotal role in India’s win.
With that in mind, former spinner Harbhajan Singh has identified a current player from the current Indian set-up whom he feels can usher Indian cricket into a new era. Having injected a fresh lease of life into his career, there is no reason why Hardik Pandya cannot become the next India captain, reckons Harbhajan.
Ever since his comeback to injury, Hardik captained Gujarat Titans to the franchise’s maiden IPL trophy in the debut season and ever since the all-rounder hasn’t looked back. And with the kind of form he has been in lately, Pandya is a beast, scoring vital runs, bowling at 140 clicks, swinging the deliveries, and picking up wickets. So impressed with how Hardik Pandya is performing.
