Who will replace Hardik Pandya in Team India? Rohit Sharma's Guru took the name of this player
Hardik Pandya was a seam bowler besides batting. In such a situation, now Virat Kohli and team management will have to find their option.
The Indian team is to go on a tour of England in June. Here, he has to play a five-Test series against New Zealand in addition to the final of the World Test Championship. Team India has been announced for this tour in which Hardik Pandya was not selected. His absence in the team can cause trouble for India according to England's condition. Because Hardik Pandya was a seam bowler besides batting. In such a situation, now Virat Kohli and team management will have to find their option. Shardul Thakur's name is leading in taking his place.
Dinesh Lad, the childhood coach of Shardul Thakur and Rohit Sharma, also lobbied to give an opportunity to his disciple as an all-rounder in an interview. He told SportsKeeda, 'As a coach I want Shardul to be given a chance in the final of the World Test Championship. Recently he has done well. He can swing the ball as well as the bat. Also, playing the role of Shardul's all-rounder will be a good thing for India. But it all depends on the team management and the coach.
Coach said - Shardul is still a bowling all-rounder
Dinesh Lad said, 'If India still lacks an all-rounder, then it will definitely get a chance. Hardik was playing as an all-rounder but was unable to bowl due to injury. The team needs a fast bowling all-rounder and Shardul Thakur is still in the line.
Dinesh Lad said that if Shardul had played against England recently, it would also benefit him. They said,
There is a time of 10-12 days before the first test. In such a situation, he will also have enough time for practice and he will also understand the situation. He had just played against England, so I don't think he would have any problem. My only option is that I always told him to bowl to the batsman in such a way that the movement is not happening because the batsman makes a mistake when this happens. He has got the ability and that is why he has reached here. Therefore, he has to concentrate only on the line-length to take a wicket. He has learned to cope with pressure. In Brisbane we saw how he battered under pressure.
