Hardik Pandya in action during India vs Pakistan CT 2017 final.

The X-Factor for Indian Cricket team is ’Hardik Pandya’. He is one of the top allrounders in the world. He is a boisterous-type of player who wears his heart on his sleeve. While his commitment towards cricket and Indian team can never be questioned, Hardik’s attitude often lands him in trouble both on and off the field.

Hardik knows his game and says he is too passionate about the game.
“I am someone who plays the game with love, passion and loves challenges,” he told ICC ahead of India’s next encounter against New Zealand.

“From where I and my brother (Krunal) have come, everything has been a bonus.”

Hardik Pandya won’t be happy by the manner in which India had capitulated to Pakistan in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 final, but at least he has the satisfaction of walking away with the fastest-ever half-century in any ICC tournament final. The all-rounders came up with an attacking knock in the final while was always going downhill for India, reaching the milestone off 32 balls. He ended up with a knock of 76 runs off 43 balls before he was run out.

Lastly, Hardik has his eyes set on the prize and wants to win the cup for his country.
