“Today, why I am enjoying, is.. even when I’m missing, my intent is to play. So what conservative I was talking about that, oh, I don’t have to get out (in the nets)… I have to play compact. So, in that, my extensions weren’t happening,” Pandya said.
Hardik hasn’t had the best of years with the bat. Also, either international cricket or in the current Indian Premier League season. The Baroda cricketer has overseen just 117 runs. At an average of 14.62 and a strike rate of 112.5. Moreover, with the T20 World Cup right around the corner. He will be trusted to get a couple of runs under his belt to regain certainty.
Mahela Jayawardene asked Pandya junior to “stop the commentary” while batting in the nets. It’ll just talk to himself whenever he felt he’d made an error.
“And the other thing when you are practicing as well, stop the commentary. Don’t talk to the bowlers.. telling them it’s a good length….[stuff] like that. You don’t do that in a match. You just talk to yourself. You know if you do something wrong. You do whatever you do to yourself,” Jayawardene said.
