He stayed away from bowling obligations in any event, during several warm-up matches against England and Australia separately. 

With Ravindra Jadeja being the main all-rounder other than Pandya in India’s 15-man crew, many trust Hardik’s powerlessness to bowl might hamper the Virat Kohli-drove side in the worldwide occasion. Former  Indian opener Aakash Chopra is of a similar assessment. Chopra deals with Pandya not bowling, while Virat Kohli might get bowling obligations at the World Cup, which is a worry. 

Outstandingly, Kohli moved his arms for a few overs during the warm-up apparatus against Australia. In spite of the fact that he surrendered simple 12 runs, Chopra feels the Indian captain can’t be anticipated to bowl convenient overs in each game. 

“Hardik Pandya not bowling is a big concern because India will have to go in with only five bowlers and won’t have a sixth option. Virat Kohli might have to bowl, like in 2016. That is something that is going to hurt India. If Hardik can somehow start bowling a few overs, it will be very good for India. In T20s, you want that extra bowling option up you sleeve,” said by Aakash Chopra on his YouTube channel.

In the meantime, Chopra likewise said  off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin isn’t probably going to feature in India’s best option playing XI. He would possibly come in if the group the executives picked to handle three spinners.

“I only see Ravichandran Ashwin playing if India go in with three spinners or there are too many left-handers in the opposition. (Ravindra) Jadeja will definitely play. He has grown in stature as a bowler but he is not your gun T20 bowler,” further added by him.

Group India will begin their tournament against Pakistan on October 24 in Dubai. Having won both warm-up games, the Men in Blue would be high in immense confidence.
