Just a few hours before the commencement of the first Twenty20 international, the previous head coach of Team India, Ravi Shastri, made a case for Hardik Pandya to be the leader of the team by using the example of World Cup-winning skipper Kapil Dev.
In the next Twenty20 International series against New Zealand, all-rounder Hardik Pandya will be in charge of leading Team India. Hardik will not be taking on the role of captain for the first time, as he was the one who led earlier this year during the two Twenty20 International matches that were played against Ireland.
Hardik received a lot of appreciation from the team’s head coach for the New Zealand tour, VVS Laxman, on the eve of the first Twenty20 international. Laxman stated that Hardik has a fantastic cricketing intellect, and that the other players look up to him.

“He possesses both flamboyance and energy in equal measure. As a result, that will reflect poorly on the individuals who make up the team. When Kapil Dev was leading the team, I was a kid “Shastri explained it to the broadcasters.
“When you have a player who can have a significant influence, when you have a person who can do everything, when you have a player who is in the heart of the action during those 20 overs, it makes a huge difference.
Others are inspired as a result, and they feel a want to model themselves after him. As a result, I’m looking forward to seeing how Hardik directs things, “he continued.
During the white-ball series against New Zealand, which consists of three Twenty20 Internationals and three One-Day Internationals, several key players, like as Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and KL Rahul, have been benched.
