Saba Karim Talks About Hardik Pandya’s Impact On India’s Chances Of Winning The T20 World Cup
Former Indian cricket Saba Karim has come out and talked about the impact that all-rounder Hardik Pandya can have on the chances of Team India winning the T20 World Cup. The ex-wicketkeeper mentioned that the Mumbai Indians’ star could play a key role in helping Team India win the tournament. That is if he can contribute with the ball as well.
Hardik Pandya did not have the best of starts to the IPL 2021 tournament. He looked out of form and things were not going well for the defending champions. Another factor that was also part of his struggles was the fact that he could not bowl. This was due to a back injury that he had picked up previously and had to undergo surgery.
The Comments Made By Saba Karim About The Impact Of Hardik Pandya In Team India’s Chances Of Winning The T20 World Cup
Saba Karim recently spoke to India News and talked about how Hardik Pandya could be crucial to Team India’s T20 World Cup campaign. He added that the format is about having as many all-rounders as you can have in the team. They can really be game changers and there is no doubt that Pandya can do just that.
He further went on to talk about the tour of Sri Lanka, which could be a game-changer for Team India. It will be a real test for some of these young talents and the senior out-of-form stars. Some of these players could be picked for the T20 World Cup squad if they are able to impress.
Saba Karim said, “The Sri Lanka tour will be challenging for Hardik Pandya as a batsman because he was struggling on the slow Chennai pitches during the IPL. He will get similar wickets in Sri Lanka, so whether he can score runs at a good strike rate in such challenging conditions in white-ball cricket.”
There is no doubt that Hardik Pandya can be a game-changer if he is in form. That is why the likes of Saba Karim and more are keen on having him fully fit and firing. It will be interesting to see how he performs in the upcoming tour. That could determine his selection for the Indian squad for the T20 World Cup.
