Hardik Pandya reveals how he rose above backlash to shine for India at T20 World Cup

After a horrible IPL 2024 season, where he averaged just 18 with the bat, Pandya rocked, but just in the nick of time.

Haters where are you now, asking Hardik Pandya, who silenced his doubters in emphatic fashion during India’s dominant opening match of the T20 World Cup 2024. Following probably the lowest point of his career that included a disappointing IPL 2024 campaign and criticism for his captaincy, Pandya returned with a fiery bowling spell that proved instrumental in restricting Ireland to a meagre 96 runs.

What has clicked for Hardik Pandya?

Speaking after India’s convincing eight-wicket victory, Pandya spoke about the importance of hard work and self-belief. “Feels very good to work hard and get success,” he remarked to the BCCI. “Everything kind of falls into place to people who kind of work hard. Go and spend a little time within yourself. Identify who you are. Back yourself because Hardik at 30 is much easier job than Hardik at 60.

Pandya’s comments cleared a picture on what probably went in his head after enduring rigorous jeers. He hit the nets, zoned himself out of public, and followed his process. Pandya’s bowling figures of 3/27 in his four overs showcased his accuracy and potency of being one the best seam-bowling all-rounders in world.
