India’s young all-rounder Hardik Pandya has shown good potential to fill in the slot of the much searched seam-bowling all-rounder. Rising through the ranks in international cricket also means that you need to be a good communicator. Over the years, players from subcontinent have been laughed at for their inability to speak fluent English during interviews.

A lot of cricketers, especially in India and Pakistan come from modest backgrounds and therefore they struggle with the universally accepted language in cricket, English.

The 22-year-old Baroda and Mumbai Indians star is not among them. He credits mobile chatting application WhatsApp for his confidence and for raising his English skills. The digital world has created wonders indeed. However, Team India will hope that young Pandya will show more confidence and be the X-factor player in the upcoming T20I ties and most importantly the ICC World T20 2016.
