Indian vice-captain Hardik Pandya has shed light on challenges of being an all-rounder by clearly stating that he works twice than any other player in the squad.
Ahead of crucial clash against Pakistan, Hardik Pandya emphasized on the importance of self-belief and adaptability to meet the team’s requirements. While speaking to Star Sports, Hardik Pandya said;
“As an all-rounder, my workload is twice as anyone else. When a batter in the team goes and bats and finishes is batting and is heading home. I’ll still be bowling after that. So for me, all the managing, all the pushing and everything happens during the sessions or my training or my pre-camp season.”

Commenting on his role in the squad, Hardik said that it’s all about what team requires.
“When the game arrives, it is more about whatever the teams requires and the managing side goes out to park. I always believes that I give myself a chance to succeed, which is by reading the game which is backing myself because I have always believed that when we go as a believer, when I am standing there, yes my ten players, my ten brothers are around me, but at the same time I’m alone,” he added.
