Hardik Pandya shares intense training session

Hardik Pandya is set to make his return to international cricket for Team India through the ongoing 2024 T20 World Cup in the West Indies and the USA. 

The all-rounder previously featured in international colors during the 2023 World Cup in India, where an ankle injury prompted him out of action midway into the tournament.

The 30-year-old recently led the Mumbai Indians franchise in the IPL 2024 season in India. Mere days after the conclusion of the two-month long event, Pandya joined the Indian group in New York for the T20 World Cup 2024.

A day prior to India’s opening Group A match against Ireland, Hardik Pandya shared an intense training session of himself on his social media accounts. In a 30-second video, the cricketer can be seen performing various fielding drills, and he even took to nets to have a swing with the bat.

Back on June 1, Hardik Pandya punched out a sizzling 23-ball 40* against Bangladesh in India’s lone warm-up match of the T20 World Cup 2024. 

The hard-hitting all-rounder bludgeoned two boundaries and four sixes to elevate India’s total to a match-winning 182-5. Pandya even claimed a wicket with the ball to finish with figures of 1-30 from three overs.

Team India is set to go up against Ireland at New York’s Nassau County International Cricket Stadium on June 5. The action is slated to commence from 8:00 PM IST onwards.
