Mumbai: Hardik Pandya’s recovery is going on a very positive note and though he was not available for the match against Sri Lanka at the Wankhede Stadium, India skipper Rohit Sharma hoped to see him in action very soon.
Pandya got injured while fielding off his own bowling during the match against Bangladesh in Pune a couple of weeks back and had walked off with one ball remaining in his over.
Initially, the injury was not considered very serious but later the BCCI informed that the Gujarat all-rounder had been asked to report to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) for treatment and monitoring. Since then, he has missed matches against New Zealand and England and as per reports, is set to miss the next two matches too — against Sri Lanka and South Africa.
“Hardik is, I can’t call it rehabilitation, is progressing well and we have got good positive reports about that so far. He will not be playing tomorrow’s match, but beyond that, I can’t say anything now. His injury is such that it needs daily monitoring. As of now, the reports have been very positive and encouraging,” said Rohit Sharma.
