The renowned former India captain MS Dhoni, according to star all-rounder Hardik Pandya, has been a major factor in his development.
Hardik has received a lot of praise this year, whether it be for his excellent all-around performance with the bat and ball or his leadership in helping Gujarat Titans win their first Indian Premier League (IPL) championship in their inaugural season.
His all-around performance against Pakistan in India’s Asia Cup opening was crucial to India’s triumph over their bitter rivals. Hardik played a crucial part by taking three wickets and adding 34 runs to his total.
“I was just a fresh-faced kid eager to discover new things about sports and life. MS Dhoni has been very important to my development. I used to watch him and pick up objects whenever I had the chance. Just by watching him, I was able to gain insight into his attitude and expertise, which has influenced my personality on the field “Hardik remarked.
