T20 World Cup: This legendary batsman of Test came in support of Hardik Pandya, sought support

Hardik Pandya has not been able to bowl for a long time.

The Indian team has reached the United Arab Emirates to participate in the T20 World Cup 2021. He has also played his two warm-up matches and has beaten England, Australia. Now he has to face Pakistan in Dubai on 24th, but before that Hardik Pandya’s not bowling remains a matter of concern for him. Pandya has not bowled for a long time and that is why his usefulness is being questioned. India’s Test team vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane, however, still feels that Hardik Pandya will be an impressive player for India in the ongoing T20 World Cup. He urged the team to support him amidst the uncertainty surrounding Pandya’s bowling due to fitness issues.

There has been a lot of debate about Pandya’s inclusion in the team as he did not bowl in the recently concluded IPL (Indian Premier League). The team management has repeatedly emphasized the importance of his bowling to the overall balance of the team. Rahane said in the ‘Salaam Cricket 2021’ program of ‘Sports Tak’, “We need to support him. When a player comes back from injury, we don’t know what he is going through and what is his mindset. It is easy to talk from outside, but we cannot even feel the phase that person is going through.

role is important

Rahane said that Pandya’s role in the team is important. He said, “He has won many matches for India in this format with some impressive performances. There will always be discussions about who should play and who should not. Hardik’s role is very important and we need to support him.”

Pant will be a game changer

Rahane also feels that his IPL team Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant will be a “game-changer” for India. Rahane said, “He is such a batsman who immediately turns the game towards his team. We have seen his potential in Tests in Australia. Against England too, he scored runs. He has improved his game a lot. He now knows how to take his game up a notch.

IPL is beneficial

Before the T20 World Cup, the second phase of IPL 2021 was organized in the UAE. Rahane said that India will benefit from this. When asked about the chances of the Indian team becoming champions in the tournament, Rahane said, “India has a strong team, it is an advantage for them that the IPL was held here, the weather is also getting better.” . I hope we win the world cup. The balance of our team is very good. Pakistani players have played a lot of cricket in UAE. There is not much difference between the conditions here and in India, so we know how to adapt to the conditions. All the players who have played in the last season of IPL will benefit in the T20 World Cup. We always respect the opponent and this T20 team will show the same respect to the Pakistan team as it does to any other opposition team.

the team will try

This will be the last T20I tournament for Kohli as captain and Rahane said the team will try to win the trophy for him. “I don’t think there will be any pressure. He has captained the team for so many years and we know his record. All the players will try to win it for Kohli. We also have (Mahendra Singh) Dhoni as a mentor. His presence will help the team.

Dhoni has a lot of experience

For this World Cup, India’s two-time world winning captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been made the mentor of the team. Asked more about Dhoni, he said, “Look, he has also captained India and CSK (Chennai Super Kings) for so many years, he has a lot of experience in this format. We know what a good captain he is, how sharp-minded he is. He does not talk much but will give very important suggestions to the team.
