India T20 Captaincy: IND vs NZ: Hardik Pandya has been selected as the interim captain for the T20I series against New Zealand. Pandya is currently leading the Indian squad only in an interim capacity due to the absence of the permanent skipper, but he is expected to take over as captain in the near future, with a focus on the game’s shortest format. Former Pakistani batter Salman Butt, however, had a different opinion of Pandya’s captaincy abilities. Follow IND vs NZ updates & LIVE Scores with InsideSport.IN

“I don’t know who is seeing him as captain and who is watching such dreams. He has talent and has tasted success in the IPL. But even Rohit Sharma has been successful five to six times in the IPL. If he had scored well in a couple of matches (in the T20 World Cup 2022), people wouldn’t have been talking about making this change at the top,” Salman Butt said on his YouTube channel.

Furthermore, he criticized former cricket players who demanded that Rohit be removed as T20I captain only because he was unable to win the 2022 T20 World Cup. Ravi Shastri recently endorsed the notion of making Hardik Pandya the next India T20I skipper if the squad were to consider it. There is no harm in having a new captain, the former India head coach remarked in a virtual press conference hosted by Prime Video.

“In the Asian subcontinent, people start talking about such drastic and big changes rather soon. Not all of them, but quite a few, who probably don’t understand how these things work. Sometimes, just for the sake of giving an opinion, people say, ‘change the captain’. Only one captain has won the World Cup, the rest of the teams have lost. Will you change the captains of all 11 teams because they lost the World Cup?”, he added.

Pandya is currently captaining the T20 team during a three-match series in New Zealand. Friday’s first game was called off due to rain. The second fixture is set to take place on Sunday in Mount Maunganui.
