हार्दिक पंड्या भारतीय टीम के महत्वपूर्ण सदस्य हैं, उनसे सबसे अच्छा निकालना आवश्यक है: युवराज सिंह। युवराज सिंह के अनुसार, हार्दिक पंड्या भारतीय क्रिकेट टीम के अहम हिस्से हैं और हमें उनसे सर्वोत्तम उपयोग करना चाहिए। इस लेख में हम युवराज सिंह के द्वारा दिए गए बयान के बारे में विस्तार से जानेंगे।
Legendary India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has expressed his support for Hardik Pandya’s inclusion in the T20 World Cup 2023 squad. Despite being injury-prone, Yuvraj believes that Pandya is a crucial player for the Indian team in the upcoming mega ICC tournament.
Pandya has been sidelined from the national team for several months due to an ankle injury sustained during the ODI World Cup 2023. He missed out on the recent T20I series against Australia, South Africa, and Afghanistan as he focuses on recovering in time for the Indian Premier League and the T20 World Cup.
In the absence of Rohit Sharma, Pandya also captained the Indian team in the shortest format last year. However, his injury has disrupted his preparations for the ODI World Cup.
Yuvraj acknowledges Pandya’s susceptibility to injuries but emphasizes the need to extract the best performance from him. He states, “Hardik is a very important member of the team, and India needs him.”
Regarding captaincy options, Yuvraj suggests exploring alternatives. Suryakumar Yadav, who has led India in T20Is, and Shubman Gill, a potential IPL captain, are among the options to consider.
Throughout his recovery journey, Pandya has kept his fans updated on his progress through social media. Recently, he shared a workout video on Instagram with the caption, “Only one direction to go, forward.”
In the upcoming IPL season, Pandya will lead the Mumbai Indians, as the five-time champions acquired him in the trading window to strengthen their squad.
Reflecting on the past two seasons, Pandya’s leadership guided the Gujarat Titans to their maiden IPL title in 2022. These seasons witnessed the emergence of young talents and the resurgence of out-of-favor veterans.
Yuvraj’s endorsement of Pandya’s inclusion in the T20 World Cup squad highlights the all-rounder’s significance to the Indian team. Despite his injury concerns, Pandya’s contributions on and off the field make him an invaluable asset.
