Hardik Pandya has been having an amazing season ever since his recovery from a back ailment. The all-reputation rounder’s as a skipper has only grown since he guided Indian Premier League champions Gujarat Titans, who were his team’s debutants, to victory.

Pandya has led India not just in the IPL but also in Ireland and New Zealand when veteran players weren’t available, enabling India to win the series in each of those matches. Pandya once again aced the captaincy test as India began a fresh strategy in the shorter format with an eye toward the T20 World Cup in 2024. The Pandya-captained Indian team defeated Sri Lanka 2-1 in the T20I series.

The argument over whether India should consider Pandya as a substitute for Rohit in the T20Is has been rekindled in light of the result. Ajay Jadeja, a former cricketer for India, shared his thoughts on the subject, saying that he thinks Rohit should pass over the captaincy to Pandya much as MS Dhoni did with Virat Kohli in the past.

“He (Pandya) utilized Umran wisely, and he made the appropriate decisions. The only thing I’ll say to him when I meet him again is that just because you were captain last week and are now doesn’t mean you can’t sprint or field as quickly as you did before. Or you as a player shouldn’t lose your position because of how athletic you were. “At the moment we’ve still got Rohit Sharma, who has been leading and whose records prove that he is the finest captain. Please don’t worry about the team alone. You as a champion player are more essential than leading. No ruler ever waits; all kings have to claim their position. Because waiting implies that the monarch has the authority to decide who receives it. It wasn’t the selection committee or the board, as Mahendra Singh Dhoni did for Virat Kohli. Virat Kohli was chosen by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who told him, “I believe you should carry it on from here.” In a conversation with someone on Cricbuzz, Jadeja said, “I believe that’s how it should be.
