India all-rounder Hardik Pandya opined on Virat Kohli’s return to form in T20 World Cup 2022. Before the mega-event, many questioned Virat Kohli’s place in the team because of his dip in form as Kohli had to struggle to score runs for some time but the team management always supported him.
Speaking with the host broadcaster ahead of the T20 World Cup 2022 semi-final against England, Hardik Pandya said: “Sometimes, I feel that either we are not batting well or they (Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav) are just on a different planet. Especially Surya. Virat, we have seen him do it for years together.”He didn’t score for a couple of months and people started saying certain things. But somewhere down the line, we all knew the cricketer he is.”

Meanwhile, Suryakumar Yadav is in a sublime form of his life. He is the third-highest run-scorer in the competition with 225 runs to his name.
While speaking about his consistency, Hardik Pandya added: “Talking about Surya, I think in life, he has got the opportunity to play international cricket late. I think he should have played two years earlier than when he made his debut. But God is very kind and he’s making up for what he could have done in those two years.”

“A lot of people keep asking how do you keep yourself calm in difficult situations. I think somewhere down the line, it depends on preparations. The calmness does not come by mental strength or anything.”You just prepare well and tick all the boxes, and you are confident about your skillset, and you know that if the time comes, you will be able to perform,” Hardik Pandya concluded.
