Former Australian bowler Brad Hogg insisted that both Hardik Pandya and Virat Kohli have similar styles as they are both aggressive and want to dominate their opponents.

Therefore, their captaincy styles could also be alike and if Hardik is ever asked to be one, he can do well, as per Hogg. For now, however, Hardik is struggling to find a place in the team due to his fitness.

Pandya could be a very good captain because he is a bit like Kohli. He wants to go out there and dominate. He’s got a body language that says, ‘I’m here to beat you.

Hardik Pandya and Ashish Nehra are personalities that are excitable over at Ahmedabad. When they’ve got a team together, they have to understand there are different personalities as well. Don’t go about giving 100 advice to a bowler at the top of the mark,” Hogg stated on his YouTube channel.

Brad Hogg excited to see what Hardik and Nehra can do for Ahmedabad

Ahead of the IPL 2022 mega auction, Ahmedabad signed Ashish Nehra as the head coach and Hardik as their captain. The duo will be in the roles for the first time and there will be a few mistakes considering their inexperience, as per Hogg.

Trust the players. When Nehra was the assistant coach at RCB, he was always on the edge of the rope giving advice, I did not like what I saw there. Both are rather inexperienced in their roles, which could be an issue for Ahmedabad.

“Pandya captaining under Flower and KL Rahul under Nehra would have been a balance of experience over there,” Hogg added.

The IPL 2022 mega auction will take place on February 12 & 13 in Bengaluru.
