Shah highlighted the crucial role Pandya plays in the Indian team and shared optimism about his recovery, stating, “We are monitoring his day-to-day. He is at the NCA and he is working very hard. We shall let you know once he is back to full fitness. He could be fit even before the Afghanistan series.”

Recent reports unveiled an 18-week specialized training regimen tailored exclusively for Hardik Pandya, meticulously crafted by the National Cricket Academy (NCA). Each day’s routine until March serves a specific purpose, incorporating cardio, strength training, functional workouts, and adequate rest to gauge his body’s response. Notably, this approach mirrors the strategies used for injured players like Jasprit Bumrah, Shreyas Iyer, and KL Rahul in the past.
