About Hardik Pandya

Hardik Himanshu Pandya, usually called Hardik Pandya, born at October 11, 1993 in Choryasi, Gujarat. He played domestic cricket for Baroda, First made headlines with his unbeaten 31-ball 61 for Mumbai Indians against Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2015. Start from that, a long association with Mumbai and Hardik Pandya began, where he played and won 4 trophies and was highly regarded as a formidable goalscorer. By the end of the 2022 T20 World Cup, he was being tipped as India’s future captain, thanks to the leadership skills he showed that year when he transformed an undistinguished Gujarat Titans squad into IPL champions during their first year of existence.


Hardik started his India career in 2016 when he was called up for a limited-overs visit to Australia, some time recently inspiring with the ball on seamer-friendly pitches in Bangladesh at the Asia Cup. He showed up to be the reply to India’s explore for a seam-bowling all-rounder, and with his sprightly fielding added to the mix, he fixed his spot in India’s squad for that year’s T20 World Cup.

While Hardik Pandya only bowled twice in the tournament, he bowled in the final against Bangladesh, defending two three-ball runs to help India win by one run. A little over a week later, Pandya endured the frustration of bowling no-ball to bowl out Lendl Simmons, whose unbeaten innings helped eventual champions West Indies reach the semi-finals.

Since at that point, it has not been all smooth cruising. The affect of a genuine back damage in 2018 proceeds to take after Hardik, some of the time constraining him from being able to bowl. And in early 2019, he was controversial when he made misogynistic and racist comments on a talk show and he was pulled up by the Indian council.

During the 2020s, Hardik developed his role as a senior player and won plaudits for his trust in players as a captain and as a person with free thoughts. In 2022, after India defeated Pakistan in the T20 World Cup, he said that he would not mind losing because the match was fun.


That year, like the previous year, Hardik Pandya put in an impressive all-round performance and captaincy, making 346 runs and taking 9 wickets in Gujarat Titans’ second consecutive final.

What India captain said about Hardik Pandya’s injury

About Pandya’s well being, Rohit Sharma was quizzed in the post-match presentation and here is the answer of Indian team captain about Pandya:

“He’s a little sore, nothing to worry about. We’ll see how he recovers tomorrow morning and then plan to move on.”

In the end, India should pray that Pandya recovers well enough to join the team for the cricket match between India and New Zealand on Sunday. Sunday’s match will be the pinnacle of this World Cup as New Zealand and India take second place on the 2023 World Cup points table and are the only unbeaten teams at the tournament. Losing Pandya means losing a fast bowling all-rounder, which will affect the balance of the team.
