Hardik Pandya has turned his career around, reckons Rahul Dravid

In the first ODI, Pandya stepped in when India were wounded at 87 for five. He struck a whirlwind of five boundaries and five sixes to bolster India's faltering total to 281 runs. A recap of it would of course take you to the hat-trick of sixes. And then in Indore, he played a completely different innings. It is probably this maturity, versitility, that Dravid is speaking about.
