Team India’s star all-rounder Hardik Pandya is struggling against South Africa. Except the 93 in the first Test in Cape Town, Pandya’s contribution is not justified to retain his place in the Playing XI. Men in Blue are leading the ODI series 3-1 and gearing up for the 5th ODI tomorrow at Port Elizabeth but the all-rounder is under pressure.
Praised by many former cricketers as a potential successor to legendary all-rounder Kapil Dev, Pandya has so far failed to maintain consistency in the “Rainbow Nation”. In the ongoing ODI series, Hardik has managed to score just 26 runs in three innings and grabbed only one wicket in four matches. Meanwhile, fans, who can be harsh at times, have not spared all-rounder on social media site Twitter. Twitterati attacked and asked him to concentrate on cricket rather than spending time on Twitter.
Jacques Kallis was batting all-rounder.
Kapil Dev was bowling all-rounder.
Hardik Pandya is fielding all-rounder.#INDvSA

Hardik Pandya must tell his grandchildren at the age of 70 that he once mistakenly compared with Kapil Dev.#INDvSA
