Pakistan great Wasim Akram said India all-rounder Hardik Pandya is an outstanding cricketer as he can hit speeds of 140 kph when bowling and is “an electrifying fielder” as well.

Pandya recently represented India in the T20 World Cup, where they qualified for the semi-finals before losing to England, who went on to lift the trophy for the second time.

The 29-year-old made 128 runs in six matches, which included a top score of 63, at an average of 25.60 and a strike-rate of 131.95.

On the bowling front, he finished with eight wickets at an average of 18.25 and an economy rate of 8.11.

“Talking about Hardik, he has pace (clocks 140 kph) and he is also an electrifying fielder,” Wasim was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.

England beat Pakistan by five wickets in the final and will now tour the country for three Tests in December.
