Hardik Pandya can play in a team as pure batter believes Sanjay Manjrekar
Star all-rounder Hardik Pandya has been unable to deliver spells for the team consistently due to his back injury. However,he bowled some great spells in the home series against England. But the 27-year-old didn’t bowl in the IPL.
Former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar has praised Hardik’s batting skills. Sanjay r believes younger Pandya is talented enough to play in the team as a pure batsman.
“Hardik proved in Australia that he is perfectly capable of playing in the team as a pure batter, there is no doubt now that he can do that. I am also reading reports that he has started bowling as well. He has shown that he has the ability to walk into the team as a pure batter in white-ball cricket,” he said.
Also, Surya Kumar Yadav revealed Hardik is bowling in nets and intrasquad matches. So the fans can expect to see Hardik Pandya,the complete All-rounder once again.
