This big news came for the fans

Hardik Pandya, who did not bowl in the Indian Premier League (IPL) last month, is currently playing in the T20 World Cup as a batsman. He scored 11 runs in eight balls against Pakistan on Sunday. He looked uncomfortable in front of the fast bowlers and in the meantime a short pitch ball hit his shoulder. A senior BCCI official told PTI, ‘Yes, the report of Hardik’s scan has come and the injury is not very serious. Apart from this, there is a gap of six days in the two matches, so that they will have enough time to recover from the injury.

A senior BCCI official said, “But of course the medical team will keep a watch on his condition during the practice session.” Hardik Pandya had recently said that he would like to bowl in the knockout stage, but India will have to win the match against New Zealand for this. A defeat in this match will deal a blow to his chances of moving forward.

Shardul Thakur is a better option in place of Hardik Pandya.

Hardik Pandya has not been able to bowl for some time now. Hardik Pandya was included in the team as a batsman in the match against Pakistan. Hardik Pandya could not do anything special in this match. In such a situation, Shardul Thakur can be given a chance in his place to balance the team. Shardul Thakur is an expert in showing wonders with the ball and the bat. Shardul Thakur has won the trust of the selectors with his excellent performance in IPL 2021. He played 16 matches for Chennai Super Kings (CSK), in which he has taken 21 wickets at an average of 25.09 and an economy rate of 8.80. His best bowling figure was 3/28. With the presence of Shardul, the lower order will be strengthened. Talking about the performance of Shardul in the last 2 years, he was the highest wicket-taker fast bowler. He took 23 wickets in 14 innings.

Next match on 31st October

The start of T20 World Cup 2021 for India was terrible and in the very first match, Team India has to face defeat by 10 wickets at the hands of Pakistan. India suffered a one-sided defeat against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup match played on Sunday. After this defeat, many questions are being raised on the selection of the Indian team. India’s next match is against New Zealand on 31 October. If Team India is defeated in this match too, then it may face the danger of being out of the tournament. In such a situation, Team India would not like to take any chances.

India may be out of T20 World Cup if it loses to New Zealand

India will have to win the next match against New Zealand at any cost to stay in the tournament and keep their luck in their own hands. After Pakistan, if India also gets a defeat against New Zealand, then it may face the danger of being out of the T20 World Cup. In the event of a loss to Pakistan and New Zealand, India will have to win their next three matches against Afghanistan, Scotland and Namibia to stay in the T20 World Cup, as well as rely on the results of other teams’ victories and defeats. .

Pakistan and New Zealand must lose 2-2 matches

To make it to the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup, India will have to be in the top 2. Suppose after Pakistan, if India also gets a defeat against New Zealand, then it will have to pray that like him, a big team either Pakistan or New Zealand loses at least two matches. Despite this, India will have to win their next remaining 3 matches keeping in mind the good run rate. In such a situation, despite losing 2 matches, India can get life. If India has to reach the semi-finals, then it is necessary for a big team between Pakistan and New Zealand to be out of the race for the semi-finals. This also applies to Afghanistan.

Be careful with small teams

Afghanistan’s team may not be able to travel to the semi-finals, but they can spoil the game of a big team like India, Pakistan or New Zealand. In such a situation, the Indian team will have to be alert at all times. In the event of losing to Pakistan and New Zealand, India will have to be even more careful with smaller teams, especially Afghanistan. Afghanistan can beat big teams. In the 2019 World Cup too, India was saved from losing to Afghanistan.
