I am surprised with Hardik Pandya’s transformation: Sanjay Manjrekar | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: Former India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar is mighty quite surprised with Hardik Pandya's transformation from just being a hard-hitting batter to emerging as one of the best all-rounders in the world who is also capable of leading teams.

Sunil Gavaskar feels Hardik Pandya has emerged as a contender for India captaincy | Cricket News – Times of India

AHMEDABAD: Impressed by Hardik Pandya's "leadership qualities" in IPL 15, batting legend Sunil Gavaskar feels the star all-rounder has emerged as a strong contender to lead the Indian team in near future. Making a comeback after a subdued outing in the T20 World Cup last year, Hardik captained Gujarat Titans to a memorable title triumph in a dream maiden IPL season, forcing those who gave the first-timers no chance before the tournament to eat humble pie. "Yes definitely. Not just my estimation, but everybody's estimation (Hardik's reputation as a leader has gone up). This was an aspect of his game which nobody had too much information about," Gavaskar told Star Sports. "When you have leadership qualities, it automatically opens the door for honours at the national level to be able to c...

IPL 2022: Rohit Sharma’s poor show left Mumbai Indians high and dry | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: His final innings in IPL 2022 summed up Rohit Sharma's worst season in the T20 league, both as a batsman and captain, in a nutshell. Needing 160 against the Delhi Capitals on Saturday night to salvage some pride in their last game of this edition, Mumbai Indians needed their captain, missing with the bat through the campaign, to come to the party, for once. However, all one saw was an out-of-form class batsman struggling to put bat to ball in his 13-ball two. The 35-year-old's misery ended when he chipped Anrich Nortje to Shardul Thakur at mid-on. Never before has the Mumbaikar -- easily amongst the top three white-ball batsmen in world cricket -- looked so ungainly, out-of-sorts and searching for answers. This is the first time that he finished an IPL without a single fifty - i...

MUMBAI: Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma admitted that a lot of things didn't go his way with the bat but he is not losing sleep over his "disappointing" season as he is just one "minor adjustment" away from finding form again.
