Former Indian cricketers Irfan Pathan and Suresh Raina have been impressed with Hardik Pandya’s fitness in the IPL 2022 and lauded his comeback as a bowler. Both Pathan and Raina claimed that the Gujarat Titans captain bowled nicely in the opening game and he will only get better as the season progresses.

While speaking during an episode of Cricket Live on Star Sports, the official broadcaster of IPL, Suresh Raina said, “The way Hardik Pandya has made his comeback, is commendable. In a player’s return from injury, his family, especially, his wife has to play the most important role and we could see the happiness on his wife’s face when he was bowling. His elder brother Krunal has also played a major role in Hardik’s recovery and gave him all the confidence he needed. Hardik is looking fit and he’s also generating decent pace with the ball, these are good signs for Gujarat Titans.”

While speaking during an episode of Cricket Live on Star Sports, the official broadcaster of IPL, Irfan Pathan said, “The best thing about Hardik Pandya is that he’s once again started bowling. You can see that he’s not trying to bend a lot while releasing the ball, which means he’s not putting a lot of strain on his back. There might be a slight dip in his pace due to this but bowling two-three good overs at the start of the tournament will give him the confidence to do well. If Hardik Pandya the batter and Hardik Pandya the bowler does well, then Hardik Pandya the captain will eventually do well. He’s looking to leave the disappointments of the previous season behind and make a fresh start.”
