However, like many the Gujarat Titans’ team director, Vikram Solanki, heaped praises on their captain and said he has “a poise that is typical of winners.” While talking to ESPNcricinfo about Hardik Pandya, he said, “For me, it was very apparent that right from the outset, from when we spoke to him about the captaincy, he was enthused by it.” Notably, the final will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday as they hope to make history in their first appearance in the cash-rich Indian Premier League as well.
“He is somebody that’s clearly a passionate cricketer, he plays cricket in a sort of entertaining way that is contagious in its style itself because he’s confident, he is prepared to take the fight on. But, to some extent, that point about encouraging people to not be afraid of making mistakes, not doubt themselves if something hasn’t gone right, he’s certainly been giving of his time in that sense, he’s been giving of his experience in that sense. And he’s got a lot of experience to share,” the former England cricketer again shared as well.

“To me, he has a poise that is typical of winners. He’s somebody that has clearly been through a great deal in his life, both as a cricketer and as a person. And he uses those experiences to sort of lead the way he does. I’m so pleased because he was very adamant that he wanted to do a really good job. He’s a thoroughly good human being. And that that has sort of stood him in good stead as well,” he again stated about Hardik Pandya.
