Hardik’s command of his men is remarkable, and as a result, the team sees a new match-winner in each game. The choice to give an uncapped R Sai Kishore his first cap at the end of the competition demonstrates the team’s management and skipper’s faith in their bench strength.

“Good cricketers, good leaders in particular keep their best for the best of times and that’s Hardik Pandya (for you) right now. He’s performing well in all departments. I love his energy and the enthusiasm that he brings to the table.” Matthew Hayden said

Sunil Gavaskar said:

“Hat’s off to the hard work he’s been putting in. He didn’t play a lot of cricket before the IPL because he was recovering from an injury. (Now) Look at the discipline he’s showing in his batting. He’s batting well in the powerplay and making full use of the field restrictions. Also he’s doing exceedingly well in the field and getting better with every game.”

Harbhajan said:

“A player like Hardik should have the freedom to work on his game, and he’s getting that at Gujarat Titans. For me, he is the best captain in this season so far. He is taking responsibility. Now he is bowling his full quota of four overs. He is leading the team from the front and has made a habit of scoring consistently with his bat. He always looks to motivate his teammates.”

Mohammad Kaif said:

“Hardik is now a changed player. As a captain, he is taking the responsibility of leading the team’s middle-order seriously, and scoring heavily. You can see, he is not getting overly aggressive this season, which is a major shift in his batting approach from the previous seasons.”
