Hardik Pandya will be turning up for the Indian team in the T20 World Cup 2021 despite him not bowling due to his lower back injury. The BCCI drafted in Shardul Thakur potentially as his cover at the cost of Axar Patel who was initially a part of the main squad. The left-arm spinner is now a part of the reserves along with Deepak Chahar and Shreyas Iyer.
Meanwhile, Hardik Pandya had a special guest interrupting his pre-match ahead of the practice game against England. Danish Sait, who was a part of the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL was taking his interview.

There is a lot of doubt whether Hardik Pandya will bowl in the T20 World Cup. He did not bowl in the IPL and has not bowled since making a comeback to the Indian team last year.
Many cricket experts questioned the sense behind his inclusion with him not being able to bowl at the moment. Pandya is already out of India’s Test team for a while and this tournament will be an important for him to keep his place in the side.
Hardik Pandya Will Bowl Against England: Aakash Chopra
Meanwhile, Aakash Chopra in his recent Youtube video has said that Pandya will bowl two overs in the warm-up game against England. India plays warm-up games against England and South Africa before starting their T20 World Cup campaign against Pakistan on October 24.
“Hardik Pandya will definitely bowl two overs. He can bowl more than that as well but two for sure and it will soothe your and my heart if Hardik bowls because if he doesn’t bowl, the story will look very different. In the powerplay overs, the two teams will lose three wickets. There is a high probability of three or more wickets falling, that’s what I feel,” Chopra said.
