Ravi Shastri On Hardik Pandya: From June 9, Team India also has to face in the 5-match T20 series against South Africa (IND vs SA). Many young players have got a chance for this series and some have also returned to the team. At the same time, former coach of Team India Ravi Shastri has also given big about a player who is part of the team in this series. He believes that this player needs to be kept away from ODI cricket.
Advice not to play this player in ODIs
Former India coach Ravi Shastri has given a big advice to Team India before South Africa. In this series, the team’s strongest all-rounder Hardik Pandya has returned. In IPL 2022, Hardik Pandya performed amazingly while captaining Gujarat Titans. Ravi Shastri has said about Hardik that he should play only T20 cricket for the next few months before the T20 World Cup to be held later this year. There is a need to take care of his fitness.
Don’t take the risk of playing ODIs
Ravi Shastri, while talking to Star Sports recently, said on Hardik Pandya, ‘Hardik Pandya will come back to the team as a batsman or an all-rounder for me. I don’t think he is so injured that he can’t even bowl 2 overs. He has got enough rest and should continue. He should play only T20 cricket to go to the World Cup. He should not take the risk of playing ODIs.
Great comeback in IPL 2022
Hardik Pandya played his last T20 match against Nimibia on November 8 in the World Cup itself. After this match, he appeared in IPL 2022. In this season of IPL, he scored 487 runs at a strike rate of 131 and also took 8 wickets. All eyes will be on Pandya in the series against South Africa. All the fans expect him to play well in this series.
