The grand stage is set. It’s time for an India vs Australia final in the World Cup 2023, a rematch of the 2003 WC final and the 2015 semi-final match. Every cricket team have started preparations for the upcoming T20i World Cup 2024. On the other hand, the Indian team will participate in the 5-match T20i series against Australia after this important tournament and then there is the tour of South Africa. But the Indian team is worried about Hardik Pandya in the upcoming important series after the World Cup.
Hardik Pandya is one of the most important players in India’s squad. He is one of the top-quality all-rounders India has ever produced. He had a good start to the World Cup this year, but he injured his ankle while intercepting the ball during the match against Bangladesh. Hardik was then ruled out of this important tournament due to injury. He is currently under the observation of doctors at the National Cricket Academy (NCA). On the other hand, the Indian team will play a 5-match T20i series against Australia from November 23.
The Indian team will participate in the tour of South Africa in December for 3 T20Is and 3 ODIs. According to sources Hardik still has some pain in his leg. As a result, the NCA medical team decided to conduct another round of scans on Hardik. On the other hand, after being ruled out of the World Cup, Pandya wrote on his official X account, “Tough to digest the fact that I will miss out on the remaining part of the World Cup. I’ll be with the team, in spirit, cheering them on every ball of every game. Thanks for all the wishes, the love, and the support has been incredible. This team is special and I’m sure we’ll make everyone proud.”
