The all-rounder from Baroda had an excellent IPL 2022. Besides leading his team Gujarat Titans to the title, Hardik scored 487 runs at an average of around 45 and also picked up 8 wickets – while being economical.

When head coach Rahul Dravid was asked about Hardik’s comeback, he sounded very pleased and claimed that the team will need him in all three departments. “Very pleasing to have Hardik Pandya back. Hardik’s leadership was impressive right through the IPL. You need to be a designated leader to be part of a leadership group. From our perspective, we would want to get the best out of his skills, batting bowling and fielding,” Dravid said.
