After becoming the captain of the Indian team, Hardik did wonders in the eighth ball itself. He dismissed Ireland opener Paul Stirling and joined the elite club of legends.

After becoming the captain of the Indian team, Hardik Pandya has already achieved a special achievement in the match. He is the first Indian captain to take a wicket in T20 cricket. After taking over the command of Team India, Hardik took the wicket in the eighth ball itself and made this special achievement in his name. After becoming the captain, he only gave the ball and took the wicket. Hardik himself was bowling in the second over of the first innings of the match and in the second ball of the over he got Paul Stirling out and gave India a second breakthrough.

Hardik has now joined the special club of CK Nayudu and Bishan Singh Bedi. CK Nayudu took the wicket while captaining India’s Test team in 1932 and became the first Indian captain to do so. After this Bishan Singh Bedi was the captain of India’s ODI team in 1976 and took the wicket. He is the first Indian to take a wicket as a captain in ODIs. Now Hardik Pandya is the first Indian captain to take a wicket in T20.

These players took wickets before becoming captain.
Many players have captained India even before Hardik, who have taken wickets for India in international T20 matches, but none of these players could take wickets while being captain. Suresh Raina was India’s third T20 captain and has 13 wickets to his name in T20Is. Virat Kohli, one of India’s most successful T20 captains, has also taken four wickets in T20 for India, but then Dhoni was the captain of Team India. Rohit Sharma has also taken a wicket in T20, but he never bowled under his captaincy.

Hardik becomes seventh captain to win first T20
Under Hardik’s captaincy, India beat Ireland by seven wickets. With this, Hardik Pandya’s name has joined the list of legends like Virender Sehwag, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Rohit Sharma. So far nine players have captained the Indian team in T20Is and seven have won their first match. This includes the names of Virender Sehwag, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan. Now Hardik has also joined this list. At the same time, Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant had to face defeat in the first T20 match as captain.
