Gujarat Titans mentor Gary Kirsten has recently revealed that Hardik Pandya is an ‘incredibly humble’ person and he has always tried to engage with players and learn new things to become a better captain as well. Under Hardik’s captaincy, the Gujarat Titans have won the IPL title in their debut season as well. However, they had a dream run in the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL) where they won 10 games and lost only 4 during the league stage.

However, after the final match, where the Titans defeated Rajasthan Royals to lift the IPL trophy, Kirsten gave the credit to Hardik for leading the side by an example as well.

“He {Hardik} has been fantastic, I’ve looked working with him. He’s a high-profile player in India but he’s incredibly humble, wanting to learn as a leader and engage with his players which I think is really, really important. He’s tried to help the youngsters, he’s come in and played a different responsibility,” Gary Kirsten told host broadcasters Star Sports after the match.

Further, while speaking about his learning at the Titans’ camp, Gary Kirsten commented, “You never stop learning as a coach, every IPL is a learning experience, that’s what I enjoy. I’ve loved working with Ashish (Nehra), he’s really strong tactically – trying to put a game plan together on the fly is not easy. There are so many variables in each game, but what I’ve enjoyed has been the responsibility players have taken to win games for us.”

However, there will be a lot of expectations of Gujarat Titans when they come back to defend the title next year as well.
