Kapil Dev raises questions against Hardik Pandya’s ability, praises Shreyas


  • Hardik Pandya has been facing fitness issues for some time now.
  • Hardik has been ruled out of the series against New Zealand.
  • Hardik had no special performance from Mumbai Indians in IPL 2021.

Kolkata: Former India all-rounder Kapil Dev has questioned whether Hardik Pandya can be called an all-rounder as he does not bowl much. Pandya, an integral part of the Indian team in limited overs cricket, recently bowled in just two matches in the T20 World Cup. India were knocked out in the group round of the tournament.

Pandya has also been criticized for not disclosing many things related to his fitness. He was left out of the squad for the T20 series against New Zealand. India won the series 3-0.

“He has to do two things to become an all-rounder,” Kapil said at the Royal Kolkata Golf Course. If he is not bowling, should we call him an all-rounder? If he is out of injury, he should bowl first. ‘

“He is a very important bowler for India,” said the captain, India’s first World Cup winner. For bowling he has to play many matches and perform well. Only then will we be able to say. ‘

Kapil also said that Dravid’s success as a coach would be even more successful than his success as a cricketer. According to Kapil, “He is a good man and also a good cricketer. The longer the journey as a cricketer, the more successful he will be as a coach.

Praising Shreyas Iyer for scoring a century in the first Test, Kapil said, “When a young batsman is scoring a century in his debut, the game is moving in the right direction. We need a cricketer like that. ‘
