Gautam Gambhir named the perfect replacement of Hardik Pandya


Hardik Pandya is one of the most important players in the Indian cricket team. This right-handed all-rounder has the ability to lead his team to victory through batting, bowling, and fielding. Hardik is fully fit and in the upcoming times, he will be seen playing in the Asia Cup and 50-over World Cup for the Indian team.

However, in the midst of all this, the big question is, if for some reason Hardik becomes unfit, who could replace him? Gautam Gambhir has answered this difficult question. Actually, Gautam Gambhir believes that the Indian team should also search for Hardik Pandya’s replacement, and Shivam Dube can do the same job that Hardik Pandya is doing for the team.

Speaking to Star Sports, he said, “One name you could think of, considering the kind of form he’s in, is Shivam Dube. Because it’s important to have a backup for Hardik Pandya.”

Let it be known that Shivam Dube is part of the Indian team in the T20 series being played against Ireland before the Asia Cup. In recent times, Shivam Dube has been in good form. He recently put up an impressive performance for the Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2023. This left-handed all-rounder has played 1 One Day International and 15 T20 matches at the international level so far.

Let’s discuss Gautam Gambhir’s opinion about the Indian team selected for the Asia Cup. According to the former cricketer, the selectors have picked a good squad, but somewhere a wrist spinner should have been included in the team.

Gambhir said, “The Indian team seems to be seam-heavy in terms of the squad. Either Ravi Bishnoi or Yuzvendra Chahal should have been picked because whenever you are playing in India, in any conditions, you need to have two wrist spinners in your squad. It seems to be a one-dimensional attack. I think it could have been slightly better here.”
