If there is one thing that separates Hardik Pandya from other young cricketers, it is his immense self-belief. The flamboyant Baroda all-rounder never lets pressure affect his game, but instead relishes such situations. A big hitter and a fast-bowling all-rounder, Hardik ticks all the boxes that a team desires from an all-rounder. It was no surprise that he was fast-tracked into the Indian ODI and T20 side after a successful run in the IPL 2015. In his debut IPL game against RCB, he hit a six off just the second ball he faced. However, his potential was truly known when he took Mumbai Indians to victory with a quick-fire eight ball 21 against CSK coming when the team needed 30 from two overs. Since then he has been a vital cog in the Mumbai Indians line-up. This year though he will be making his debut as captain for the new franchise Gujarat Titans. Hardik will be leading a side that boasts of a good blend of youth and experience. His credentials as an all-rounder are well known but how will he lead this new franchise? Only time will tell.
