In the Asia Cup encounter against Pakistan, Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya got injured and is striving to reclaim full fitness.
The 25-year-old Indian all-rounder suffered an injury during the Asia Cup 2018. He fell while bowling in India’s first game of the tournament against Pakistan. He was carried away on the stretcher off the field due to the injury.
After that, he was not named in the squad for the series against West Indies, which clearly confirms that he is suffering an injury which might take some time.
The all-rounder Hardik Pandya has started the recovery process. He is willing to make his comeback India’s tour of Australia.
Hardik Pandya shared a photograph on social media of himself post a work-out session, with a caption that read, “Weekends started well. Road to recovery.”
The Chairman of the selection panel, MSK Prasad, had revealed that Hardik Pandya will be available to make a comeback in the month of November. He also confirmed Pandya’s selection for the series against Australia that starts on November 21.
In the absence Hardik Pandya from the Indian Cricket Team, Ravindra Jadeja seemed to have filled his role in both ODI and Test cricket. Ravindra Jadeja was also preferred over Kuldeep Yadav for the first ODI as captain Virat Kohli went for Jadeja and Yuzvendra Chahal.
Rishabh Pant was handed his maiden ODI cap by former Indian skipper MS Dhoni.
Although Hardik Pandya is exceptionally talented. But the cricketer has been harshly criticized for wasting himself by Sunil Gavaskar and Michael Holding. However, Pandya wasn’t disappointed by the comments and said that his main goal was to win the World Cup next year.
Hardik Pandya said that the World Cup is the greatest goal for him. Pandya wants to give more than his 100 % to win the World Cup.
