Growing concerns surround Hardik Pandya’s prolonged absence

Concerns grow over Hardik Pandya's extended absence

According to Live Cricket Score, the Indian all-rounder is receiving rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru. It is unknown when he will return. It’s still being determined whether he’ll be ready for the November 2 game in Mumbai against Sri Lanka or the November 5 game in Kolkata against South Africa. It is currently established that he will not be available for the game in Lucknow.

When Pandya was playing against Bangladesh on October 19, he sustained an ankle injury in Pune. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had initially anticipated that Pandya would be well enough to play the match in Lucknow. “Team captain Hardik Pandya injured his left ankle while fielding on his bowling during India’s match against Bangladesh at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune,” reads a statement released by the BCCI to the media.

“The all-rounder was sent for scans, and relaxation is advised.” He will be under the constant supervision of the BCCI Medical Team. Instead of flying to Dharamsala on October 20, he will now join the team immediately in Lucknow when India faces England.” Well-informed sources continue to insist that the harm is minor.

It is still being determined whether India will use three pacers, as they did in Dharamsala, or a third spinner, such as R Ashwin. The final decision will be made closer to game time. The ground at Lucknow is moderately dry, favoring spinners over pacers. According to a team spokesperson, the Indian team will undertake an additional optional practice session on Friday afternoon.
