Will Hardik Pandya be able to bowl in T20 World Cup? The answer remains mystery!
Rohit Sharma, captain of the Mumbai Indians, said the all-rounder Hardik Pandya could start bowling next week and that physical therapists work with him regularly. 4,444 Indians from Mumbai finished the 2021 IPL in fifth place on Friday (October 8). The team ended its 2021 IPL campaign with a 42-run win over Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), but failed to qualify for the playoffs.
In the second phase of the tournament, Hardik did not throw a single ball and even fought with a club in his hand.
"Yeah, he looks at his bowling alley, he hasn't done it yet. Physiotherapists, trainers and the medical team are working on his bowling alley. So far all I know is that he hasn't thrown a single ball, but we wanted to take him from game to game and see where he is from day to day. Maybe next week I can go bowling, who knows? Doctors and physical therapists will be able to provide an update, "Rohit said during a virtual press conference after the game.
" As for your stroke, yes, you will be disappointed, but we know the quality of it. He is a quality player, there is no doubt about that. Personally, he would not be happy with his blow, but the team and I are confident in his abilities. He will do it every time he goes out on the field.
'Players like him are just one inning away from returning to their natural path. If I have to put it all together, I am sure of his abilities and sure of him that he will be a great asset, "he added to Yadav.
"We just don't play as a team and collectively as a group, we don't get together and that was the main reason we didn't qualify for the playoffs. If you want to win games and tournaments you have to have
" We don't tend to depend on one or two people at any given time, we always believe that everyone will come together. That didn't happen this year and it was disappointing, "said Rohit.
" There is a different squad here and it will be a different squad in the T20 World Cup. What we do here is different from what we do there. There is a lot of mixed understanding from the two teams, the six or seven guys that we have here would have liked to have had a good race, but it didn't happen. While talking about Surya and Ishan, he said that his form is not as good as cause for concern.
