Hardik Pandya is turning out to be a utility player for the Indian cricket team. He has been delivering the goods in the form of four dimensions as he can bat, bowl, field and also lead the team from the front.
Currently, the Indian team management has made Hardik Pandya the T20I captain. The board doesn’t want to include the likes of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli in the T20I setup.
The team management wants the seniors to focus on playing ODIs and T20Is as of now. Talking about Hardik Pandya, he led the team for the three-match T20I series against the Black Caps recently.
The Men in Blue lost the T20I opener against the New Zealand cricket team in Ranchi. Needless to say, the Men in Blue made a rebound in the must-win game in Lucknow as they won the game by six wickets.
Hardik Pandya said he doesn’t mind playing the role which MS Dhoni used to play
Team India went on to dismantle Kiwis in the T20I series decider as they won the game by a huge margin of 168 runs. The Men in Blue won the game and the series by 2-1 under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya.
Meanwhile, India’s T20I captain, Hardik Pandya made an interesting statement about his role in the team. He stressed the fact that he doesn’t mind playing the role which MS Dhoni used to play.
He further added that he is totally enjoying his finisher’s role quite a lot. Hardik Pandya also echoed that he has often looked forward to getting his strike rate down or taking new opportunities whatever is best for the team.
Meanwhile, Team India will invite Australia for the Border Gavaskar Trophy series (four Tests) followed by the three-match ODI series. The first of the four-match Test series begins on February 9 in Nagpur.
He's too much into this Dhoni thing.

Who defined these 'Roles' in cricket? If something worked for MS (Tho not for long) it doesn't mean it's Universal method of success.
