Will Hardik Pandya be back in attack with the ball?
While the MI player has not been seen rolling his arms with the ball in the MI camp as of now, fans might see his action with the ball in the remaining matches of the tournament. Besides, Pandya didn’t even bowl even a single delivery in IPL 2020 as he had recently recovered from his back injury then.
The right arm medium pacer was he can be seen in action with the ball during India tour of Sri Lanka in July. While he returned with decent figures in the ODIs, his T20I outing with the ball had been a little haywire- economy- 8.50, wicket-1.
With optimum fitness now, Pandya could fairly lend his services with the ball in the upcoming matches provided he practices some disciplined bowling in the nets.
