‘Back To Rehab?' BCCI Slammed For Hardik Pandya's T20 World Cup Spot After Missing From MI

© Provided by MensXP

Why is Hardik Pandya not playing for the Mumbai Indians in IPL 2021? That is the question every single fan of the franchise has been asking each other, and to the franchise as well. Twitter is flooded with speculations on Pandya not being completely healthy, while others feel that MI is just being extra cautious in his case.

The fact of the matter is that the reigning champions haven’t looked like themselves in the last two matches, ever since the second leg of IPL 2021 started in the United Arab Emirates and skipper Rohit Sharma would be happy to get all the help that he can get his hands on.

Under such circumstances, the talents of someone like Pandya, who was once considered to be the modern-day equivalent of the great Kapil Dev for the Men in Blue, could come in extremely handy for the Hitman, and his attempt at three-peating the IPL championship.

Unless, of course Pandya continues to remain unfit and is struggling with his back bad enough to be recommended to stay out of action. If that is the scenario, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has some explaining to do about his selection in the final Team India roster for the T20 World Cup 2021, which begins in less than a month’s time.

Fans have been wondering about Pandya and his unusual predicament:

No Hardik Pandya? Do we know why? #MUMvsKKR #IPL2021

If Hardik Pandya is not fit to play for MI, why is he not at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru?

Who is Hardik Pandya ????

A cricketer who cannot play Crick matches

IF he plays, He will either bowl or Bat

Why are we even considering him

A cricketer who cannot give his 100 percent but on insta sabka baap bana firta hai #Jamaicanbreed https://t.co/30968jwCGS

And it isn’t just the fans who are wondering what is wrong with the all-rounder. Former Indian wicket-keeper batsman Saba Karim has also shown his concerns towards Pandya, his injury status and the implication it could have on the Men in Blue during the World Cup.

While speaking during a discussion of YouTube channel “Khelneeti”, Karim asked why Pandya was selected if he was injured.

“He (Hardik) is a big player. But the question now is when he was selected for the Indian team, was he fully fit or not? If he was fit then it is justified. But if not, then when did this niggle happen? If he was carrying that injury then why was he selected? The general rule is – you have to prove your fitness and go to NCA and come back. This rule applies to everyone. So, the question is right but we don’t know what has exactly happened with Pandya,” said Karim.

Having said that, the Mumbai Indians ace is expected to be seen in action during the exciting clash against Virat Kohli’s increasingly desperate Royal Challengers Bangalore, who will be hoping to get back to their winning ways after also losing both their matches since the 2021 season resumed in the Middle East.
