Hardik Pandya to play crucial role: Hardik Pandya’s return to Team India fold is a blessing for the team management. An all-rounder Hardik brings in the balance that India missed during the T20 World Cup.

IND vs SA Live: Why all-rounder Hardik Pandya crucial for Team India?

  • Hardik has been in superb form after returning to injury. In IPL 2022, he was Gujarat Titans’ top scorer with 487 runs in 15 matches at an average of 44.27 and a strike rate of 131.26.
  • With the ball, he bagged 8 wickets at an economy rate of 7.27.
  • It was his 3/17 spell against Rajasthan Royals in the final that helped Gujarat Titans clinch the title.
  • All-rounder Hardik Pandya is expected to play the finisher’s role for Team India.
  • If he bowls his full quota of four overs, India can afford an extra spinner or an extra batsman.
  • With Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar set to be India’s pacers at the T20 World Cup, Hardik can play the fourth pacer’s role in Australia.
  • It will help India either slot in Axar Patel who will provide the batting depth a death overs specialist in Harshal Patel.
  • His inclusion also lessens the load on the three lead pacers.

Fruitful Practice session on Day 1: Rahul Dravid conducted India’s first practice session at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium on Monday.

While all eyes were on Umran Malik, Dravid took his time out and watch him bowl carefully at the nets. Bowling coach Paras Mambrey also conducted a special session with Umran on Monday.

However, it was Arshdeep Singh who impressed the most with seering yorkers. He kept bowling at every area Mhambrey wanted him to. For the 1st T20 against South Africa, the competition will be between Umran Malik, Avesh Khan and Arshdeep Singh for the third pacer’s role.
