Pandya's six lands on the face of a fan

Pandya's six lands on the face of a fan”

There is little doubt that the famed Indian batting lineup is in safe hands these days. It'll also be interesting to see how the Indian team shape up over these next two years, given they did play a Champions Trophy in England and had some good individual displays.

He has tested Kedar Jadhav, Manish Pandey, KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya. Pandya, however, is an exception. Pandya followed that with an innings of 41 runs in the fourth ODI in Bengaluru.

India's chief coach Ravi Shastri, whose decision to elevate Hardik Pandya to number four in the batting order proved to be a master-stroke, reckons that the Baroda all-rounder has the ability to clear any ground in the world with his power-packed strokes. (The idea was to) probably push the spinner out of the attack and get the quicks to come earlier into the game. He did a good job in at Indore and here. Hardik has got a solid defence and he has got technique. "He is not just a slogger", he said. Dravid, who was Pandya's coach during an India A tour of Australia past year, hoped that the current India A players are able to emulate Pandya's batting approach. He did that in the last game and he did it this time too, and batted nicely. If he gains more confidence and if he can understand how to take the game till the end, he might be a regular at that spot. "They complement each other, they have got varieties galore and their actions are different and vastly experienced". On Thursday, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, and Kuldeep Yadav were rested. All are in Kohli's plans for the World Cup.

Pandey reserved his place and contributed 32 runs. "He is out of danger but will need stitches", Dr Ajith Benedict, who heads medical centre in the stadium, told the Times of India. In hindsight, if you lose, I am not that kind who thinks that I should not have done this. We will do the same in the future. If it does not work, you make another plan and go for it and try execute it well.
