Michael Vaughan: Hardik Pandya can be the next superstar

Published Date:

While India is eagerly searching for a sixth bowler, the return of the prodigal all-rounder Hardik Pandya to the side hasn’t quite solved the dilemma. Making a comeback from a back injury, owing to his bowling, Pandya did play a vital role in India’s batting in the Australia series, however, he is yet to sling his arm with the ball.

Talking to Cricbuzz, former England captain Michael Vaughan however revealed that he has high hopes for the all-rounder. The 46-year-old is of the notion that Pandya can be the next global superstar after MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli, given he keeps up his form.

“MS Dhoni, he had that mantle for many years. Virat Kohli has it now. It’s generally the Indian players that get put onto that pedestal and I think Hardik’s got a chance to be the next superstar,” commented Vaughan.

He added, “He has to look at the next three years. With the next T20 world cup being in India, obviously, the IPL being in India, the next 50-over World Cup is in India in 2023, Hardik Pandya has got a great opportunity to become the next global superstar.”

After a blistering performance in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League this year, Pandya carried his form with the bat down under. In 14 games he amassed 281 runs averaging 35.12. Batting at 6th or 7th, Pandya’s IPL average is excellent. He played a vital role in Mumbai Indians’ 5th title win.

Touring with the men in blue, Pandya picked up the man of the series mantle in the T20I series. His knock of 42 off 22 in the 2nd T20I helped India bag the T20I series. In the ODI as well, Pandya kept up his form with the bat.
