Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya has performed quite effectively as a middle-order batsman in the limited overs series in Australia. Pandya has also played the finisher very well on this tour.
Over the past few years, Pandya has been attacking the bowlers fiercely. His batting has improved under pressure. That’s why Australia coach Justin Langer has started comparing him to Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Meanwhile, former India fast bowler Zaheer Khan has also given his opinion on Pandya’s batting.
Zaheer, who has worked closely with Pandya for the Mumbai Indians franchise in the IPL, said it would not be easy for any bowler to stop him if he keeps batting like this.
Zaheer, in a conversation with our website, Cricbuzz, said, “He is very tense and does not bother too much with the dot ball no matter what the circumstances are.” This is because they believe in themselves. He can hit a six under any circumstances and if he waits for the bowler’s mistake. He brings the bowler under pressure.
Zaheer said, “Pandya is making such an image in his career that it will not be easy for the bowler to stop him no matter what the situation of the match is.”
Pandya has proved his usefulness with the bat but he has not been able to fully utilize his ability in bowling. At the moment, he is not fully fit to bowl in Australia. Javish feels that once Pandya crosses this hurdle, he can be more useful for Team India.
Zaheer said, ‘You are seeing what kind of batting he is doing, adding more to his bowling and fielding, he will become more dangerous. A match winner. Their bowling has always been given a lot of attention and it gives a lot of balance to the team. He is currently changing the course of the match with his batting. His confidence has increased tremendously and is proving to be quite impressive at this stage.
