India Tour of Ireland: a member of the selection committee InsideSport.In Told to, “Hardik Pandya has always been influential. What is more satisfying is that he has become a very responsible player as a captain. He has certainly emerged as a good choice for the captaincy role for the tour of Ireland. Team selectors will consider his name.

Gujarat Titans came as a new franchise in IPL 2022 and Hardik Pandya took over the captaincy of GT. And now GT is the first team to reach the final. GT skipper Hardik Pandya regularly bowled at over 140 kmph and scored runs in the tournament. With both KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant joining the squad for the 5th Test in England, Team India needs a captain for the Ireland series.

India Tour of Ireland: Shikhar Dhawan was present in this list earlier but the team selectors are looking for a fresh face for the role in which Hardik fits perfectly. Chasing a tough target of 189 runs against Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2022 Qualifier 1, he has bagged the new Captain Cool title with David Miller leading Gujarat.

India Tour of Ireland: Why Hardik Pandya might be picked as the captain for the Ireland series?

  • Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant – all three are unavailable for the Ireland series as they play a four-day warm-up match ahead of the Birmingham Test.
  • India will need someone experienced to lead the team since Shikhar Dhawan was dropped from the T20Is.
  • The selectors are mulling over the role between Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya.
  • However, Hardik Pandya, who has successfully led Gujarat Titans to the IPL 2022 final, is a prime contender for the role.
  • He has scored 453 runs in 14 matches in IPL 2022 at an average of 45.30 and strike rate of 132.84.
  • After the Ireland series, Hardik will join the limited overs squad for the two T20 warm-up matches against county teams.
  • The squad for the Ireland T20 and the limited overs series against England will be announced after the South Africa series.
  • VVS Laxman will be the coach in charge of the Ireland series.

The member of the selection committee said, “Look, it is too early to make any announcement now. Hardik is a name but a decision on it will be taken only during the South Africa series. The important thing is that he stays fit and in form. He is a very important member of the team.”
