Gautam Gambhir said about Hardik Pandya that he can be included in the Indian playing XI against the Pakistan team led by Babar Amaz. Gambhir said that Pandya will now have to start bowling in the warm-up match of the T20 World Cup.

New Delhi, Online Desk. In the T20 World Cup 2021, India has to play the first match against Pakistan and by winning this match, Team India would like to make a great start. There is no doubt that you cannot take any team lightly because in the T20 format, one or two players is enough to change the match. There are also players in Pakistan’s team who have the power to perform well, in such a situation, Team India will have to select their playing XI very carefully. Most of the focus will be on Hardik Pandya as he has not been bowling since the surgery and whether he will bowl against Pakistan or not is not decided. Now how beneficial it will be to include him in the team as a pure batsman, it will be a matter to be seen whether the team management takes the risk of playing him as a batsman or not.

At the same time, former India opener batsman and commentator Gautam Gambhir said about Hardik Pandya that he can be included in the Indian playing XI against the Pakistan team led by Babar Amaz. Gambhir said that Pandya will now have to start bowling in the warm-up match of the T20 World Cup. Talking on Star Sports, Gambhir said that for me Hardik Pandya can find a place in the playing XI only if he bowls properly in warm-up matches and not just in the nets. There is a big difference between bowling in the nets and bowling in front of a batsman like Babar Azam.

Let us tell you that when the team was announced for the T20 World Cup 2021, then chief selector Chetan Sharma had said that Hardik Pandya is fully fit and he will bowl the entire overs of his quota in the T20 World Cup. On the other hand, in the UAE leg of IPL 2021, Hardik Pandya did not bowl for his team Mumbai and could not play the role of an all-rounder for the team. “He has to bowl in practice matches and in the nets, and he has to bowl 100 per cent. If you are thinking that you will bowl at 115-120 kmph, I will not take that risk,” Gambhir said.
