Hardik Pandya Likely To Miss The World Cup Match Against England On Sunday

Hardik Pandya will likely miss the next World Cup encounter against England on October 29 in Lucknow due to injury. Pandya’s recent ankle injury has cast doubt on his participation in the match against England.

The injury occurred during India’s match against Bangladesh when Pandya suffered an ankle injury while bowling. This setback forced him to sit out the team’s last match against New Zealand.

A BCCI official, speaking to CricketNext, shed light on the situation, stating, “Yes, Hardik is likely to miss the next match vs England in Lucknow. It is more of a precaution at this stage and nothing serious.” This cautious approach aligns with the priority of ensuring Pandya’s long-term fitness and availability for the remainder of the tournament.

To facilitate his recovery and ensure the injury doesn’t worsen, Pandya did not travel with the Indian team to Lucknow. Instead, the BCCI medical team advised him to take a much-needed rest.

The Hardik Pandya and Team India fans are the expectation that he will rejoin the squad in preparation for the match against Sri Lanka in Mumbai. The medical team will continue to monitor his progress, ensuring his return to full fitness as soon as possible.
