All-rounder Hardik Pandya will not be traveling with Team India for the tour of South Africa later this year. According to Inside Sport, he has been asked to report to the NCA. Hardik will undergo rehabilitation and prove his fitness before making his way back into the national team.

Pandya was not considered for the T20I series against New Zealand, and he has not been in contention for the Test matches since the England tour in 2018. While Hardik played in the ICC T20 World Cup, he failed to perform.

Hardik has been marred by injury issues and didn’t bowl in the last two editions of the IPL. “At this moment, Hardik is not fit to play Test cricket, and he needs time, and we don’t want to rush him before the next T20 World Cup,” the BCCI official said. According to the official, Hardik can play in the Vijay Hazare.
