Rohit backs Hardik to come good at T20 World Cup despite lean IPL: ‘There’s no doubt about his quality’

Hardik Pandya didn’t bowl a single ball in the five games he played during the UAE leg of IPL 2021, and that could be a concern for India heading into the T20 World Cup. While Rohit Sharma, Hardik’s captain at Mumbai Indians, did say the allrounder was “getting better day by day”, he also added that only medical experts knew when Hardik could resume bowling.

“The physios, the trainers, the medical team are working on him [Hardik],” Rohit said after the game against Sunrisers Hyderabad. “As of now, all I know is he hasn’t bowled a single ball yet. We wanted to take one game at a time and see where he stands. You saw he didn’t bowl today as well, but he is getting better day by day. In the next week or so he might be able to bowl, who knows. I mean only the doctors or the physios will be able to give an update on that.”
