Hardik Pandya likely to miss ODI World Cup 2023 match against New Zealand. Is this because of injury ?
Hardik Pandya’s absence from India’s next game against New Zealand due to medical reasons is a concern for the team, but it’s a positive sign that he will receive treatment from a specialist doctor in England. His recovery and availability for the game against England will be closely monitored, and the team remains hopeful that he will rejoin the squad in time for that crucial match. Pandya’s all-round abilities are invaluable to the Indian team, and his presence can significantly impact the outcome of matches. India will be eager to have him back in action as soon as possible.
“He will be heading to Bengaluru where he has been asked to report to the NCA. The medical team assessed his ankle scan report and it looks he will be fine by taking an injection. The BCCI consulted a specialist doctor in England and they too were of the similar opinion. He will be missing the next game,” a BCCI official said.
Hardik Pandya’s Injury in ODI World Cup 2023
Hardik Pandya, while bowling, tried to stop a ball that was heading for the boundary, which would have resulted in four runs for the opposition. While attempting to stop the ball, Pandya lost his balance, which means he stumbled or fell off balance. In the process, he dragged his right foot while landing on the pitch, causing him to feel discomfort or pain. The team management, which includes the coaching staff and medical personnel, will be concerned about this incident. They will monitor Pandya’s condition closely to determine the severity of the injury. The hope is that the injury is not severe and that Pandya can recover quickly to rejoin the squad and continue contributing to India’s campaign in the World Cup.
