The last few days haven’t been that great for Hardik Pandya. Right at the peak of his career, he was injured and then attended a chat show, which completely changed things for the youngster. He was even under the hammer of the judge for his sexist remarks and was also suspended. However, he has been recalled back to the side. Meanwhile, Kiran More expressed his happiness for the youngster.

After making the return to the game, Hardik Pandya delivered right in his first game. Initially, he took a stunning catch to dismiss Kane Williamson and later, bowled his heart out to make things fall in place. And then, he showed his real character in the final ODI of the series.

It was like a comeback to him – Kiran More

The former cricketer Kiran More quoted that Hardik Pandya is a decent person and the show has just happened. He added that the suspension was like dropping from the team to the youngster, who worked his way in that manner to make a return to the side.

“Absolutely [was expecting him to make an immediate impact on comeback]. He is a very talented cricketer, no doubt about it. He had no bad intentions at all. The chat show incident happened. That’s what shows the character of the cricketer. He is a cricketer who works very hard and gives his 100% whenever he plays for his teams. Happy he has made a huge comeback.

“Definitely, he was very disturbed [during the Koffee With Karan row]. Good, he has made a huge impact straight away. “He just went for an interview and talked something. And it went out of control. It’s part of life. You learn when you make a mistake. Now he will definitely know what he needs to do in the future. He has realised that. He has also apologised to the BCCI.

Now, he is clear about his cricket:

Further, he went on to add saying that Hardik is pretty clear about his cricket now and showed the world that how much he is wanting to perform for the country. Kiran believes that the show is a blessing in disguise, which made him a better person and a cricketer.

“Now, he is clear about his cricket. His focus is on cricket and he showed how much he wants to play for India in New Zealand. The suspension for him was like getting dropped from the India team. For him, it was like he was trying to make a comeback. He and Rahul both of them have realised they made mistakes. He is mentally so strong and it has shown with the way he has made the comeback,” he inferred.

Well, it has been a great return for Hardik Pandya. The way he coped up things mentally was brilliant from the all-rounder. Now, he will be looking to make most from the upcoming 3-match T20I series.
