In Indias T20 World Cup puzzle, Hardik Pandya is a vital component.Hardik Pandyas' batting was a big plus in the first T20I against Australia, which India lost by four wickets.Although veterans such as Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma failed to hit big, Pandya scored 71*, his highest score in T20Is after 52 innings.He bowled two overs, giving up 22 runs.However, Rashid Latif, the former Pakistan cricket team captain, believes that Ben Stokes is ahead of Hardik as an allrounder.There is no doubt that he (Hardik) is a very good player, but that it is a bilateral series.In bilateral series, such innings are typical.The Asia Cup had just wrapped up, and you should count those victories as well. In a video on YouTube channel Caught Behind, Latif said that he won the World Cup and Test matches for England.I don't think you can do anything different when it comes to (reports) on the field.Because a trophy is a trophy.In terms of World Cup and Test matches, Ben Stokes is ahead of Hardik in that respect. However, having better innings and being better than Stokes are two completely different things.India and Pakistan will begin their T20 World Cup campaign on October 23.
