“Indian cricket needs to stop giving him that much priority”: Ex-Cricketer on Hardik Pandya

Cricket"Indian cricket needs to stop giving him that much priority": Ex-Cricketer on Hardik Pandya

Sringar: Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan has said Indian Indian cricket needs to stop giving Hardik Pandya that much priority as he is yet to prove himself at International stage.

Irfan Pathan, who has been vocal about Mumbai Indians captain recently has once again lashed out at Pandya.

“What I feel about Hardik Pandya is that Indian cricket needs to make it clear that they should not give him that much priority as they have given him so far, because we still haven’t won the World Cup. And if you think you are a primary all-rounder, you need to make that kind of an impact at the international level. As far as the all-rounder is concerned, he hasn’t made that impact at the international level, we are only thinking about the potential. We are getting confused between the IPL performances and the international performances. That’s a big difference,” Pathan said on Star Sports Press Room Show.

“First of all, he needs to play throughout the full year. He cannot pick and choose. Indian cricket needs to stop doing that. Stop giving preferences to individuals, if you do that, you will not be winning major tournaments. What Australia has been doing for many years is that they are actually preferring the team game. Making everyone a superstar. Not one superstar, everybody is a superstar in the squad. If you don’t do that, you will not win big tournaments,” pointed Pathan.
