New Delhi: Team India is preparing the option of star all-rounder Hardik Pandya. India’s bowling coach Bharat Arun has disclosed this on Wednesday. Let us know that Hardik Pandya was not included in the Indian team for the final of ICC World Test Championship starting next month. Apart from this, Pandya did not get a place for the five-match Test series against England.
Shardul Thakur has the potential to become an all-rounder
India’s bowling coach Bharat Arun said that Shardul Thakur has the ability to become an all-rounder which the team needs, as Hardik Pandya is not able to bowl. According to the Cricket Board of India (BCCI), Hardik Pandya is not in a position to bowl.
The selectors will decide to find the option
Bharat Arun said that the decision to find the option will be made by the selectors, but Shardul Thakur has definitely made a strong claim. Arun said, ‘It is the job of the selectors to find the all-rounder and then we can refine those all-rounders. Shardul has proved that he can become an all-rounder. He did a fantastic job in Australia.
Hardik Pandya is unable to bowl
Hardik Pandya played the last Test during the tour of England in 2018. He has been suffering from a back injury since 2019 and recently suffered a minor injury to his shoulder during the Indian Premier League. Arun admitted that it is very difficult to find a good alternative like Pandya.
Hardik Pandya Had the back operation done
Hardik Pandya said, ‘I wish we could have prepared a bowler like this. Hardik is an exceptional talent, but unfortunately he had to undergo a back operation and after that it was not easy to come back. ” Arun said, ‘He bowled against England, I think he did a great job, but he bowled continuously. For this, we have to manage better and work on strengthening it.
World Test Championship final from June 18
Thakur, who played two Tests, impressed in this year’s Test match against Australia on his own land and took seven wickets in the match apart from scoring a half-century in Brisbane. Thakur is expected to get ample opportunities on the upcoming tour of England. India has to play six Tests on the England tour, which will begin with the World Test Championship final against New Zealand on 18 June. England has made a clear policy so far among the top teams to deal with the fatigue of a biologically safe environment in the midst of the Kovid-19 epidemic.
