Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who is currently out of the team owing to an injury he picked up during the Asia Cup, says that his recovery is on track but he doesn’t know when he can make a comeback.

In an interview to Times of India, Pandya said that he likes to live in the present and not focus too much on what people have to say about him. During the England tour, Sunil Gavaskar and Michael Holding questioned the all-rounder’s tag associated with him, but Pandy is not too worried.

“They’ve played so much cricket. Let them say it. It’s OK. I’ve heard them so much. I respect that. I’m worthy enough that they’re talking about me. If I wasn’t, they wouldn’t have said anything about me! I take it in a positive way,” Pandya said in the interview.

There are different theories doing the rounds that the management wants to rest Pandya in order to keep him fresh for the World Cup, but the all-rounder is not reading too much into them.

 

“I’m not thinking about anything. It’s completely the (team) management’s call. That’s how I’ve played my cricket till now. I do whatever they (captain and the coach) and my team require me to do. If they want me to play any particular format, I’m OK. If they want me to play all three (formats), I’m completely fine,” he said.

Speaking about the influence of Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni, Pandya said that his game has improved a lot under both the individuals.

 

“He’s helped me improve my game, which is a fantastic quality in him. Till now, I’ve grown with him. My career started under MS, then Virat took over. I’ve improved under both of them,” Pandya said.

“I love Jacques Kallis. The way he managed his workload, the number of games. He played in all the formats of the game, and was still fit. My goal is to be as fit as him,” Pandya was quoted as saying in an exclusive interview with The Times of India (TOI).

A tad overconfident, a whole lot selfish! That's what his attitude says. Sunny and Holding are talking about him not because he is worthy of being spoken about, but because he is totally **** and someone who doesnt deserve being anywhere close to the international team.

 

If Virat wants to win anything, be it tests in Australia or in the world cup, this guy should be kicked out and kept as far as possible. There are plenty talented bowlers and batsmen who can do way better than this idiot.

This is the only thing I find right actually. People have goals. Doesn't matter if they reach or not. They can try though. It's a good sign he is try to remain fit. Other than that it's just the inherent arrogance.

Pandya’s critics are worried that Pandya is not worried about their criticism 

 

On topic, Kallis is a good role model to follow for those who consider themselves as batting all rounders :nod:

As far as ODIs are concerned,He is an integral part of the team,Won us handful of matches since debut.

 

As far as Tests is concerned,Better if he misses out Australia tour..We will get to know how Specialist Batsman/Bowler performs whose place He is taking-Many think that including myself.

Kallis had picture perfect technique, Pandya has none so Pandya even if he tries hard it is too late for him to modify his non existent technique.

 

To become batting allrounder you should have ability to bat, sadly this gentleman has none.Indian team's quest to find so called balance has led to giving undeserving  test caps to guys like Binny and Pandya.

At the positions he bats at, his batting is ok .... and has played quite a few good innings .... Could he improve? Definitely!

 

But not buying the argument that he can’t bat .... or cannot lend balance, etc. .... you can write all that if it makes you feel good but that is about it

My feelings are not important. He is batting at that spot because he not good enough to bat higher. To call him a batting allrounder is a joke.

He is not good enough bowler to bat at the spot he bats, you can improve if you have basic skills , sadly Pandya lacks in both departments.

Wow.. for a guy who won you a test in the last series, who has won you multiple ODIs, so much hate! 

I guess if the matches were not on tv and people only followed radio commentary/ newspapers then he would have had a lot more fans.

Dikhawe par mat jao, apni akal ladao!

He has a long way to go in test cricket.....

I think Vijay shankar will do better in test cricket (as batting all-rounder)

 

I think he would have done very well as a batsman in the just concluded WI series at home. He struggles abroad just like our specialist batsmen. That being said, he needs to contribute well in at-least one discipline per match to justify his place.

so much criticism for a potential  youngster who has just started off, played only  11 tests, 7 of them in SENA, proved that he has it in him to  create  utmost calibre knocks   like the 93 vs a  highest quality  bowling line up in the toughest of batting conditions, won the only test  in  ENG with a brilliant all round performance, avg:ed less than 25 with the ball in a generally  tough batting conditions in ENG

and avg:es 31+ with both bat and ball  as of now despite all these  adversities.

 

On the other hand, complete hacks like Pujara who has been utter  mediocre in  SENA ,even after  7 series  in these countries  does not even call for enough criticism.

Just can't understand some of the double standard logics going on here.
