Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya has become an integral part of the national side in all formats after proving his worth as a genuine fast bowling all-rounder, the kind team India lacked.

The youngster often faces criticism for the way he dresses up for public events and he also gets the stick for being too bold at times. Mumbai Indians teammate of Pandya, Kieron Pollard, has come out in defence of Hardik as he feels that conservative people go after a guy like him who expresses himself loudly.
“The way he carries himself and the manner in which Hardik plays, emulates how he is off the field and sometimes when you see guys like that, we as individuals who are very conservative tend to always have negative things to say. But, you know, when you are a confident person off the field and you can take that on to the field and perform, I think that shows great mettle in the human itself,” he said.
