Captaincy is new for Pandya, as he had done so only once at the U-16 level for Baroda earlier. There is no ‘set standard’ for his captaincy, but he will try to follow his ‘guru’ Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

I always believe that you need help only when you are not having a good day.
Pandya said that he wanted to apply the lessons learned from the captaincy styles of Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. He said, “I would pick from Virat for his aggression and passion, his energy is tremendous. I will learn the art of restraint, calmness and being normal in every situation from Mahi bhai. From Rohit, I will try to take the lessons of giving freedom to the players to play freely.
