India’s dynamic all-rounder, Hardik Pandya, will miss the upcoming match against New Zealand. The setback occurred when Hardik Pandya injured his left ankle during India’s match against Bangladesh at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. While fielding and attempting to stop a drive from Bangladesh’s Liton Das, Pandya twisted his ankle, leading to an unexpected injury.
After the injury, Pandya was taken for scans, and the medical assessment confirmed the need for rest and rehabilitation. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) provided the latest report on his condition and announced the decision regarding his participation in the upcoming matches.
As a result of his injury, Hardik Pandya would not be accompanying the Indian team to Dharamsala for the upcoming game against New Zealand scheduled for October 22. This sudden absence raises questions about the team’s balance and performance, considering Pandya’s significant role as an all-rounder.
Despite the disappointment of his absence, there is optimism about Hardik Pandya rejoining the Indian team. He is expected to make his comeback in Lucknow for the game against England. The team is hopeful that he will make a full recovery and be available to contribute to India’s campaign.
The medical team is actively monitoring Pandya’s condition, and he will be under their constant supervision during the recovery process. The team management and BCCI are focused on his well-being and ensuring that he makes a full recovery before returning to action.
Amidst the concerns about Pandya’s injury, Indian cricket fans found solace in Virat Kohli’s exceptional performance. The star batsman notched his 48th One Day International (ODI) century, guiding India to a comfortable seven-wicket victory over Bangladesh in the World Cup.
