Akash Chopra Believes This Indian Cricketer Can Score a Ton If Promoted Up the Order

Hardik Pandya contributed with an important 44-ball 64 in the third and the final ODI against England on Sunday in Pune which India won by 7 runs to clinch the series 2-1. His 5th-wicket partnership with Rishabh Pant helped India get past the 300 run mark and post a winning total of 329 in the series decider.

The 27-year-old all-rounder has been contributing continuously with the bat in recent times. He has 7 half-centuries to his name in One Day Internationals but is yet to score a century. Former Indian cricketer turned commentator Aakash Chopra believes that Pandya will breach the three-figure mark in ODIs if he is promoted up in the batting order.

“Four wickets had fallen at one time. When KL Rahul got out, it seemed the innings had floundered. The way he batted after that, he has the strength, he updated his batting software when he was injured. He has started playing like a proper batsman,” he said.

“There is a specific game plan that he will go deep inside the crease against fast bowlers and keep his weight forward despite that, so that he is not off-position while playing the shots. He has been consistently scoring runs, whether it is spin or fast bowling and was actually upset that he got out at the wrong time. If he had kept on playing, 390 was also possible,” concluded Chopra.
