Hardik Pandya, the bowler, has not been missed by the management despite his continued importance to the team’s balance, as Mohammad Shami is currently in outstanding form.
Recovering from an ankle injury, star India all-rounder Hardik Pandya is unlikely to play before the team’s November 12 World Cup opener against the Netherlands. On October 19, Pandya suffered a left ankle injury while fielding his own bowls during the match against Bangladesh in Pune. In addition to missing the matches against South Africa on November 5 and Sri Lanka on Thursday, he also missed the matches against New Zealand and England.
On November 12, India plays the Netherlands in Bengaluru in their league finale.
It is only a small rip. He is healing nicely and should be back for the final league match. Additionally, he might participate in the semifinal right immediately, according to a BCCI source.
India has won six straight games and will advance to the semifinals.
The squad had to make two adjustments to the starting eleven in order to offset Pandya’s all-around skills. The management is using five bowlers in his absence, with Suryakumar Yadav batting at number six.
Pandya, the bowler, is still vital to the team’s balance even though Mohammad Shami is playing brilliantly and the management hasn’t missed him.
Following the victory over England, bowling coach Paras Mhambrey gave his assurance that Pandya would soon return. Pandya was recuperating at Bengaluru’s National Cricket Academy (NCA).
“The medical staff is considering that and keeping in close contact with both Hardik and the National Cricket Academy.” In a few days, we hope to receive an update,” Mhambrey had stated on Sunday.
Pandya was expected to report to the team in Lucknow before of the England match, but he was not present, according to a BCCI media statement.
