The new talented cricketer of Indian cricket team Hardik Pandya always enjoyed the batting of Indian limited over captain MS Dhoni. He also inspired with the partnerships and batting style of Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni.
“There’s a lot to learn when both (Kohli and Dhoni) of them bat. Their batting, running between wickets inspire us. It’s at another level. It’s fun to watch them bat together,” Pandya told.
Hardik believed that he will perform well for the team India in the pressure situation and that will help him to increase his confidence.
MS Dhoni already said that he will bat at number 4 for India in the post match interview. That is the nice move by the captain cool to release the pressure over the young players.
“It shows positive intent. I enjoyed his (Dhoni) batting. As a batsman, whatever number I bat at, we should play according to the situation. It’s a job for everyone. It gives us confidence for someone who bats lower down the order. It’s pretty good,” he added.
Hardik debut in the One Day International format in the ongoing series against New Zealand. He was the man of the match in that game for his superb bowling performance. He picked 3 important wickets in that match.
Pandya was also impressed with his batting in the second One Day International match, but unable to finish the match in the favour of India. India is now 2-1 ahead in the ongoing series of 5 One Day Internationals.
