Hardik Pandya News: History will repeat itself after 63 years, when Hardik Pandya will take charge against Ireland

New Delhi: Hardik Pandya has got the captaincy of the Indian team for the two-match T20 series against Ireland (IRE vs IND). Under Hardik’s captaincy, Gujarat Titans won the IPL 2022 title. He is the vice-captain of the Indian team in the T20 series against South Africa (IND vs SA). The key players of the team will be on the tour of England and for this reason Hardik has been given the command of the team. The matches of the series will be held on 26 and 28 June.

5 captains in a year
Hardik Pandya will become the 5th captain to lead India in an international match in 2022 as soon as he steps down for the captaincy in the match against Ireland. In January, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul captained the tour of South Africa. After this, Rohit Sharma was the captain in the West Indies and Sri Lanka series. In the current T20 series against South Africa, Rahul got the captaincy after Rohit was rested, but Pant took up the responsibility after his injury. Now Hardik is ready for the captaincy.

This happened in 1959
Earlier, this has happened only once in international cricket, when 5 different players have captained India in a year. India played 9 matches in 1959. Apart from Vinoo Mankad, the team was captained by Hemu Adhikari, Datta Gaikwad, Pankaj Roy and Gulabrai Ramchand. In these 9 Tests, India got only one victory under the captaincy of Gulbrai Ramchand. While one match was a draw, Team India had to face defeat in the other 7 matches.

9th captain of T20
Hardik Pandya will be the 9th captain to lead the Indian team in T20Is. Virender Sehwag was the first T20 captain of India. After that Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh Pant got this responsibility. Only Dhoni, Kohli and Rohit have been regular captains in this. All others got a chance to take charge in the absence of the regular captain.
