Hardik Pandya’s attitude caused many to doubt his ability as a leader

Hardik Pandya’s attitude caused many to doubt his ability as a leader
Hardik Pandya, the captain of the Gujarat Titans, may have struck his first fifty of the IPL 2022 season, but his team was defeated by Sunrisers Hyderabad on Monday (April 11). Hardik lost his cool several times throughout the match, which attracted the anger of supporters on social media.

Hardik was caught on camera insulting GT players Sai Sudarshan and Mohammed Shami for their on-field errors. The 28-year-old all-rounder was first rejected a DRS call that could have put a stop to SRH captain Kane Williamson's innings. He was also spotted angry at Mohammed Shami for not attempting a catch and Sai Sudharsan for allowing an easy two.

GT fans believe Pandya is to blame for the team's loss, as they believe his lethargic batting and refusal to review Williamson's LBW call cost them dearly. They also believe that the all-rounder should not be considered for a spot in the Indian team's leadership group.

Hardik Pandya has been compared to his brother Krunal Pandya by certain fans. While playing domestic cricket, the latter got into a fight with Baroda colleague Deepak Hooda. After joining the Lucknow Super Giants, Krunal and Deepak Hooda have come to terms.

Furthermore, GT pacer Shami noted that his position in the team is critical, since he is responsible for taking wickets with the new ball early on. In IPL 2022, Shami has been the team's main wicket-taker, with six wickets in 3 games at an average of 15.16 and an economy rate of 7.58, helping Gujarat to become the tournament's lone unbeaten team.

Shami stated that when one have a lot of options, it's crucial to focus on taking wickets first. When he has so many possibilities, it's critical to have his top options for picking wickets in front of him.

Star Sports inquired about a shift from Tests and ODIs to T20s in terms of determining the right line or length. Shami commented that in Test matches where they have to focus their length on one location or do something similar in 50 overs, they sometimes get into a mood with red ball. They sometimes put a little too much effort into small-scale planning.
