Hardik Pandya has started bowling in the nets ahead of Team India’s important match against New Zealand in the ICC T20 World Cup. He rolled his arm over for a few balls before heading to bat in Dubai.
Visuals of Pandya bowling along with Shardul Thakur and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were shown on air just before the match between Scotland and Namibia.
India suffered against Pakistan due to the absence of the sixth bowler as Hardik was not fit to bowl in the match. The Men in Blue ended up losing the game by 10 wickets.
Pandya’s inability to bowl has impacted India’s chances and the fans urged the management to look for a possible replacement if he is not fit.
It is still not clear whether Pandya will bowl against the Kiwis or not.
