Sourav Ganguly had urged Hardik Pandya to play Ranji Trophy, but the all-rounder refused to follow the instructions

All-rounder Hardik Pandya has ignored Sourav Ganguly’s suggestion and has decided to skip the Ranji Trophy 2022. The BCCI President had stated that he wanted to see Hardik play in the premier red-ball domestic tournament.

The 28-year old will not participate in the tournament to focus on his India comeback in white-ball cricket. Kedar Devdhar was named skipper of the Baroda team. Vishnu Solanki was named Devdhar’s deputy as the Baroda Cricket Association announced a 20-member squad ahead of the first phase of the Ranji Trophy.

However, Hardik’s name was mising from the list. He was dropped from the Indian team after his ordinary performance in the ICC T20 World Cup. Pandya is expected to return to competitive cricket in the Indian Premier League, where he will be leading the Ahmedabad franchise.
