Miller said, “Also, he is very clear in the matter of discipline. He has very good qualities as a captain. He said, “Even in IPL, he kept getting better and better as the season went on and I expect him to do the same (in the Indian team).”
India need a change in their old approach in powerplay so can Hardik bring that change and teach the players not to worry about failure? To this, Miller said, “Absolutely. He will make the players much better mentally. hundred percent. He always lets the players do what they want to do which is very important.”
