Tough To Digest The Fact That I Will Miss Out On The Remaining Part Of World Cup: Pandya

Mumbai: Hardik Pandya, the vice-captain of India, will miss the rest of the World Cup because of an ankle injury he suffered last month. Along with approving Prasidh Krishna to succeed Pandya, the International Cricket Council (ICC) made the news on Saturday.

On October 19, while bowling for India against Bangladesh, Pandya tried to block a hit with his foot and hurt his ankle.

His absence from the following matches against England, New Zealand, and Sri Lanka was caused by this incident. The talented all-rounder used social media to share his feelings and show his team support during the current ICC ODI World Cup.

“Tough to digest the fact that I will miss out on the remaining part of the World Cup. I’ll be with the team, in spirit, cheering them on every ball of every game. Thanks for all the wishes, the love, and the support has been incredible. This team is special and I’m sure we’ll make everyone proud. Love, always, HP,” Hardik posted on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Prior to his injury, Pandya was an invaluable player in the competition, making a big contribution with the bat and the ball. He claimed five wickets in India’s opening three games.

Prasidh Krishna has been chosen as Pandya’s replacement due to his absence. The pace bowler has taken 33 wickets in total from his 17 One-Day Internationals and 2 Twenty20 games for India. Krishna will now contend with well-known players like Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, and Mohammed Siraj for a position in India’s pace squad.

Even with Pandya’s injury setback, India has won all seven of their matches at the World Cup, demonstrating excellent performance. They have qualified for the semi-finals and are presently leading the competition standings. Their next test comes on Sunday in Kolkata against South Africa, who are now in second position.
