Hardik Pandya, the Indian all-rounder, has come a long way and has beautifully created space for himself in the Indian squad. Hardik is currently recovering from his prolonged injury that he suffered during the Asia Cup last September in UAE. He recovered to play in the IPL 2019, however, the injury resurfaced and he had to undergo a surgery.

As the fans are anxiously waiting for Pandya to make a powerful comeback in the squad, the all-rounder is expected to be out of action for some time until he has recovered completely.
