During the bustling ODI World Cup 2023, Hardik Pandya’s absence has been noticeable. A key team player for India, Hardik got hurt while blocking a boundary in the game with Bangladesh on October 19. Rohit Sharma gave a crucial update on Wednesday about the status of Hardik’s injury.
Speaking at the pre-match press conference, Rohit Sharma revealed that Hardik Pandya’s injury is being discussed daily. Though he refrained from giving the exact date of the all-rounder’s return, Rohit confirmed that Hardik will miss the upcoming game against Sri Lanka scheduled to be played in Mumbai on Wednesday.
Rohit Sharma expressed his optimism on Pandya’s recovery, saying: “Whatever procedure he went through after the injury, it was very positive. He is obviously not available for tomorrow’s [Sri Lanka] match. But it is an injury that we have to see every day how much percent he has recovered, how much he is bowling, how much he is batting. So we are monitoring it on a day-to-day basis. The way it’s going, hopefully, we’ll get to see him as soon as possible. That’s all I can say for now.”
However, in line with ESPNcricinfo, there are doubts regarding Hardik’s availability for India’s ODI World Cup recreation against South Africa at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on November 5.
