India’s star all-rounder Hardik Pandya has hogged plenty of limelight because of his lean form. The cricketer has been going through a rough phase in his career as he has been dealing with constant fitness issues.
Though the Indian team management has shown immense faith in the stat all-rounder and has given him several opportunities, but time and again, the star all-rounder has failed to make the opportunity count because of his injury issues.
He has been missing from the action since the T20 World Cup 2021. Hardik has dropped from the team India squad for the home series against New Zealand and later from the squad for South Africa due to his injury concerns.
He has been struggling with a back injury since mid-2019. He underwent surgery in October 2019 but has been unable to regain his full fitness since then
The struggle has affected his performances, both with the bat and the ball and as a result, there has been a drastic change in his career graph in the international scene. Pandya didn’t bowl at all in IPL 2021 and was struggling to score runs. But Hardik looks determined to make a comeback very soon and he has been training really hard to attain his fitness, in order to make a comeback.
On Monday, the Baroda born player took to social media and shared a video of himself, where he can be seen sweating it out in the nets. The video is a perfect answer from Hardik Pandya to his haters and critics. Sharing the video, Hardik wrote:
“Step by step. Putting in the hard yards”
