T20 world cup gautam gambhir says hardik pandya should play only if can bowl

New Delhi. Suspense remains on whether all-rounder Hardik Pandya will get a chance against Pakistan. Since the lower back injury in the year 2019, questions are being raised on Hardik’s form continuously. He did not bowl even in the warm-up match before the World Cup. Meanwhile, Gautam Gambhir, a former cricketer of Team India and a member of the 2007 T20 champion team, has put a condition regarding the inclusion of Pandya in the playing XI. He has said that Pandya should be kept in the last eleven only when he bowls.

Writing a column in the English newspaper Times of India, Gambhir has assessed Team India. Referring to Hardik Pandya, he wrote, ‘Due to Pandya’s non-bowling in the recently concluded IPL, the selectors included fast bowler Shardul Thakur in the team instead of spin bowling all-rounder Axar Patel. I want Pandya to bowl his full quota. If there is no fitness problem, then he can give that good balance to the team. But if he doesn’t bowl then I won’t keep him in my team.

Team Comparison from 2007 World Cup
Referring to the 2007 T20 World, Gambhir said that there are similarities between the two teams. Even at that time many players including the captain were engaged in cementing their place and the same is happening even today. He wrote, ‘Virat has announced that he will leave the captaincy of T20 after the World Cup. KL Rahul is trying to establish himself on the opening front. We all want to see Hardik as a successful all-rounder. But so far it hasn’t happened. Suryakumar Yadav, Ishaan Kishan and Varun Chakraborty are in their early stages. Dhoni is associated with the team for the first time as a mentor. Like in the year 2007, this time also people have their own goals.
