Hardik needs to focus on one aspect of his game: Pollock
New Delhi, Aug 10 (CRICKETNMORE) - All-rounder Hardik Pandya has gone from strength to strength before becoming a regular in the India Test cricket side but South African great Shaun Pollock wants the rising Baroda star to focus on one aspect of his game if he wants to be a long-term prospect.
Pollock said that the advent of T20 cricket has given rise to a number of all-rounders in world cricket, even as he picked Englishman Ben Stokes as one of the best among the current crop.
Coming to Indian cricket, the former Proteas all-rounder has advised the 24-year-old Hardik to settle down with one dimension of his game (be it batting or bowling), while contributing with the other.
"T20 cricket has made a lot of people realise that they can have the ability to contribute with both bat and ball. As far as all-rounders around the world are concerned, it's difficult to pick one but I can think of Ben Stokes. He is one of the best," the former South Africa skipper told IANS.
