In the second phase of the current IPL 2021, many questions have been raised about Hardik Pandya. After not playing the first two matches, Hardik played against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the third match. But this star all-rounder has only played as a batsman.
And because of this, Hardik is worried about his fitness. Hardik could not play in the previous two matches due to injury. And just as a batsman, Hardik’s chances in the T20 World Cup have sparked controversy in the cricketing world.
BCCI may axe Hardik Pandya and Bring New player
This time the BCCI is in a state of turmoil at the moment. According to multiple reports, Hardik Pandya may be removed from the main squad for the T20 World Cup. Hardik was originally included in the squad as a finisher to play thunderous innings and four overs with the ball in hand.
Hardik’s form with the ball and bat from the Sri Lanka tour is quite poor. The BCCI and Mumbai Indians management have been quite aware of Hardik’s workload since his back surgery. But this time it is going to be the final test for Hardik, and the IPL is going to be an acid test for this star all-rounder.
Shardul or Shreyas Iyer may replace Hardik
It is now known that Shardul Tagore and Shreyas Iyer could get a chance in the main team of India in the T20 World Cup instead of Hardik. Shardul’s all-round performance from the last tour of England has caught the eye of India, he is also showing brilliance with the ball in the IPL.
Meanwhile, after recovering from injury and returning to the IPL, Shreyas Iyer is playing quite well with the bat. Needless to say, these two cricketers are in the reserve squad for the T20 World Cup.
