Hardik Pandya was extremely happy to see his skipper return to the side. He said that the return of Rohit Sharma helps him focus on his well-being as a player. Pandya said that he feels much more relaxed due to the return of Rohit Sharma.
I can focus more on my well-being: Hardik
“Ro (Rohit Sharma) is back so it is much more relaxed. I can focus more on my well-being and try to share all my knowledge. If they need my help or advice, I’m always there. The body is very good, we are following a plan and the workload is being managed rightly with the WC just 6-7 months away,” Hardik told broadcasters ahead of the second ODI vs Sri Lanka.
Hardik has played a huge role in Axar’s contribution with the bat in the last few months. Pandya advised Axar to work on his batting and give some valuable contributions with the bat.
He’s upped his game massively in the recent past: Hardik
“It has made a big difference, the only request I had from him was more contribution from his batting. He has worked tremendously, helps my life knowing Axar is after me, helps the team play a certain balance. He’s upped his game massively in the recent past, makes the team feel more confident,” Hardik added.
