This is World Cup not just any series or match Former chief selector questions Hardik Pandya selection for T20 World Cup 2021 – Latest Cricket News

Many veterans had initially expressed their displeasure over the inclusion of all-rounder Hardik Pandya in the Indian team for the T20 World Cup 2021. The matter took hold when India lost their first match of the tournament against Pakistan and Pandya did not come out to bowl. Even before the start of the T20 World Cup, questions were being raised on Pandya’s fitness and now questions are being raised about his place in the team. Pandya is not bowling due to a back injury, but his bat is also unable to get runs. Meanwhile, former India selector chief Sandeep Patil has also raised questions on Pandya’s selection in the team.

Sandeep Patil said during a conversation with The Times of India, ‘His selection in the playing XI is up to the captain and coach and only BCCI would know about it. But, if the player is not fit, then it comes to the selectors. He did not bowl in IPL 2021, on which the selectors had to take a decision. The selectors should have asked Hardik Pandya for a fitness test before including him in the Indian team for the T20 World Cup 2021.

There was no statement from Ravi Shastri’s side. Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane had earlier said that he is fit. This is a World Cup, not a series or a match. If he is unfit in the match then how can you say that he is fit?
