With the conclusion of IPL-2021 League stages, the selected players for Indian Team will be under focus of radar on their ongoing performance. Recently concluded Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad match was the most relieved match as Men in Blues main players like Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan are back in form and it will be a huge sign for the Indian Team for the upcoming tournament.
But the whole point comes and sticks on the concern over Hardik Pandya’s form and Varun Chakravarthy’s fitness saga, both are under a major trouble and here Team Mentor MS Dhoni have to work a lot and give adequate advice to Skipper Virat Kohli.
“See MS Dhoni in his initial years as skipper had to face the situation that Kohli might face when it comes to the fitness of Varun. You need to find the options when the player in question is a match winner and there is no doubt that Varun’s four overs can turn matches. Dhoni’s input will certainly be crucial in this situation and his past experiences should help” stated by Source while speaking to ANI.
“But the bigger concern is Hardik as he is an altogether different player when he can bat and bowl. Imagine having two match winning all rounders in the form of Hardik and Ravindra Jadeja. But the same Hardik becomes slightly less effective if he can’t bowl and the team composition needs a re-think in that case” further added by him.
“If you look at the current middle order batsmen, Surya and Kishan are in form but they haven’t played in showpiece events and the pressure that a World Cup bring is unthinkable unless you are out in the middle”
“You have to understand that there are certain muscles and tissues that he has used in his body that he has used in his body while bowling over the last decade or even more. Now with the surgery and the slight tweak in action, his muscles and tissues might be taking more time to adapt to the new process. It is something that can happen to any sportsperson “said when asked about Hardik’s current scenario.
