Aakash Chopra, the former Indian cricketer shared on how Hardik Pandya got success as a captain. He further added that following Mahi’s way helped Hardik for his success in IPL. Gujarat won the trophy in their very first year in Indian Premier League. Gujarat Titans after the draft picking named Hardik Pandya as the captain of the team. They built a very strong team in the draft picking. They got Hardik Pandya, Shubman Gill and Rashid Khan in their team.
Aakash Chopra on Hardik Pandya’s captaincy said
“Hardik Pandya’s captaincy, this job couldn’t have been done without the captaincy. He brings calmness, he brings confidence, he brings belief,” said Aakash Chopra on his YouTube channel.
Aakash Chopra further added that
“He says he has learned from Mahi how to remain calm. He is otherwise a flamboyant player. That calmness and flamboyance do not actually go hand-in-hand. If you see Dhoni as calm, he is not flamboyant, he is very understated. If you see Kohli as flamboyant, he is also not calm, he is aggressive. Hardik Pandya is finding that balance, the best of both worlds,” Aakash Chopra concluded.
Gujarat Titans went to finals for the second time in two years. Both the new teams have qualified for the playoffs two times. However, Gujarat went to the finals in the first year and won the championship title. In the second year, they were so close to winning the final match. Jaddu spoiled the party of Hardik’s team and gave the farewell to Rayudu and MS Dhoni.
