Hardik Pandya Becomes First Indian Captain To Pick A Wicket In T20 Internationals

India National Cricket Team captain Hardik Pandya has become the first Indian captain to pick a wicket in the T20 International (T20I) cricket.

Hardik Pandya achieved this tremendous milestone in the first match of the two-match T20I series 

against Andrew Balbirnie-led Ireland National Cricket Team at The Village, Malahide, Dublin on Sunday, June 26.

Notably, Hardik Pandya is leading India for the very first time in his career.

 He was given the captaincy responsibility in the absence of Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul from the team.

Hardik Pandya made his debut as a skipper in the Indian Premier League 2022 and he performed exceptionally well for his team, Gujarat Titans (GT). 

Also, he led the debutants Gujarat Titans (GT) to the IPL 2022 triumph.

After his success in the Indian Premier League 2022, he was appointed as Rishabh Pant’s deputy for the five-match T20I series against South Africa, which ended in a 2-2 draw.
