While New Zealand witnessed their unbeaten run smashed by Pakistan, India continued to enjoy a glorious journey in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament. In their 6th game of the mega-event, the men in blue defeated the unpredictable West Indies side to claim 2 crucial points and almost guaranteeing their semi-final berth.
A major talking point of the game was the innings of all-rounder Hardik Pandya. While the 25-year old provided a vital contribution with bat, but his innings never got going as he failed to deliver those lusty blows towards the back end of the innings.
In the scheme of things, former Pakistan cricketer Abdul Razzaq, a huge admirer of Pandya, was able to spot some weakness in India’s all-round sensation. The 39-year old opined that Hardik’s weak footwork and out of balance body limits his ability while trying to hit the ball hard.
To counter this, Razzaq has given his availability to help the Gujarat born player to make him a cricketer of finest quality. It remains to be seen if Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) approaches Pakistan’s dashing hitter to upgrade Pandya’s skills.
