To represent the nation against any international country is everyone’s dream, but the selectors have shown the way out to many strong players due to poor form. Now the only way left for these players to come back to Team India is to make a place in the team again by showing the best game in the IPL and bouncing back to their earlier form. Hardik Pandya is the first name who wants to regulate his form as soon as possible.
For a long time. Hardik Pandya has been running out of Team India. Last he played for Team India in the T20 World Cup 2021. He could not show any miracle in the T20 World Cup. He was constantly dealing with fitness issues.
Hardik has represented India in all three formats. Now, he has been a captain of the newly joined Gujarat Titans in IPL. In such a situation, he would like to impress the selectors by showing a great game in bowling and batting. So that he can place in Team India again for sure.
For now, it is a big chance for him to generate his energy and regain his form. He is now completely ready for IPL 2022. It is the first time when the team of Gujarat Titans is entering the T20 league under the captaincy of Pandya. The tournament has started today. While the final match will be played on May 29. The league round of 70 matches of the 10-team tournament will be held only in Mumbai and Pune. The venue of the 4th match of the playoff has not been decided yet. Hardik Pandya did training in Baroda along with many team players and coach Ashish Nehra. The camp started on 25 February to 2nd March.
A source told news agency ANI, “All-rounder Hardik Pandya has started working hard for the IPL. They campaigned with Abhinav Manohar, Darshan Nalkande, Varun Aaron, and head coach Ashish Nehra.
Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who is ready to lead Gujarat Titans in the Indian Premier League (IPL), has made a big statement before the IPL. Pandya said that his game and fitness are improving and his focus is on the things which are in his control. The 28-year-old has been battling fitness issues since a back injury in 2019. For this reason, he did not find a place in the Indian team for the last few series against New Zealand, South Africa, West Indies, and Sri Lanka.
In the video released on the IPL 2022 website, Hardik said,
“I was just spending time with family, working hard as usual. I am making sure that I prepare well. During this, I had a lot of time to think about what I wanted and what would be good for me.”
There was a lot of buzz after Hardik was made the captain of Gujarat Titans since he was not retained in the team by Mumbai Indians. Hardik and his brother Krunal Pandya has come up with a lot of struggle. The duo should not let this opportunity go, instead should take it as an opportunity to move ahead and constantly work hard to last in cricket. We hope that we will see the more mature and more understanding version of Hardik Pandya in this fresh season of IPL 2022, say Hardik 2.0. Don’t you think?
