Hardik Pandya, a 22-year-old all-rounder from Baroda could prove to be a possible end to the long search for the all-rounder of Team India, as the national selectors included him in the ODI squad for the upcoming tour of Australia.
Pandya was first noticed during this year in Indian Premier League (IPL). Representing Mumbai Indians, Pandya played a couple of game-changing innings with the bat and provided a couple of important wickets with the ball at the right time.
According to Pandya,“I am confident of playing my first game for India against the Australia and doing well.”
Irfan Pathan has also come out from Baroda, and had a big influence on Pandya, specially since Irfan is also an all-rounder.
