Indian pace spearhead Ashish Nehra is pleased to see the rise of Hardik Pandya and has words of praise for the youngster.

"I call him a West Indian guy from Baroda, because of his mannerisms and demeanor," said Nehra.

The veteran bowler proceeded further in his eulogy of the 22-year-old Mumbai Indians player. 

"He is very comfortable and an easy going guy. He is an amazing talent and a fast bowling all-rounder that India need," continued the 36-year-old Nehra, adding, "I definitely see potential.

"If he works hard and everything falls in place, he will be really good for India, especially in one-day cricket."
