Gujrat all-rounder Hardik Pandya is one player that has had a great impact on the Indian team in all forms of the game since his debut two years ago. He brings a sense of balance in the team batting lower down the order and being quite effective with his medium paces. Hardik Pandya comes into the ICC World Cup 2019 on the back of a title-winning season with the Mumbai Indians where his power hitting made quite a headlines. At the turn of the year, he was embroiled in a controversy for his remarks on the show – Koffee with Karan. But he has come back and let his game do the talking ever since.
