He impressed in the T20I series against Ireland, before leading the country against Ireland. He then played the T20I and ODI series against England and was named ‘Player of the Series’ in the 50-over format.
After the final game of the England series, in which he returned figures of 4/24 and hit 71 out of 55 to help India make the decision, Hardik took to Twitter to share a video of his “ups and downs” , where he talked about his comeback.
Bollywood star Suniel Shetty commented on the video, writing, “You really are an inspiration Hardik.”
