Indian cricketer Hardik Pandya has earlier been the captain of Gujarat Titans in IPL 2022. His captaincy, along with team support, helped the team to bag the IPL title in their debut season.

IPL, or the Indian Premier League, is a treat for cricket lovers and gamblers. That's because gamblers get to earn some good profits, just as they do after interpreting MLB picks. Besides IPL, Hardik Pandya has also been the captain of the national team during the two-match T20I series against Ireland.

Hardik Pandya's take on whether he's interested in captaining India

Hardik Pandya has been a popular choice for Indian captaincy for a long time. He was said to have immense captaincy potential by several former cricketers earlier.

So, when he was asked about the Indian captaincy, he said he would be more than happy to become a full-time captain for the national team. Pandya has earlier led team India when captain Rohit Sharma wasn't available. He led the team in the fifth and final T20I of the five-match series, playing against West Indies at Lauderhill, Florida.

It was also the time when the team defeated West Indies with their power-packed performance and clinched the T20I series. The margin between both teams was 4-1.

Speaking further about the upcoming matches, Pandya said that currently, they have the Asia cup and World cup lined up. The team's focus is on that, and they aim to keep getting better on the skill sets that they are working on.

Previously, Rohit Sharma mentioned how the Indian team is led by so many captains. He further elaborated that it's a great thing because of the multiple leaders within the group.

Sharma also talked about how it's important for teams to have leadership. He mentioned that the team members play in the IPL as well, which is a 10- team tournament. With that being said, the national team has ten captains who are IPL leaders but return back to play for the national team.

He also said that the proficiency of these captains makes his job easy as he believes the team understands everything well.

Sharma also added, "So, it's just about if someone's having a thought, how am I going to back up that thought. For me as captain, that is my role, and that is what I'm trying to do."

Will Hardik Pandya make a great team captain for the Indian cricket team? What do you think?
