IPL 2022: Hardik Pandya has resumed practice confirmed Gujarat Titans’ spin bowling coach

IPL 2022: All eyes will be on the fitness of Hardik Pandya, who is set to captain the Gujarat Titans team as the new franchise debuts in the Indian Premier League in 2022. The star Indian all-rounder is yet to play a competitive match since the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 in UAE, which ended in November 2021, due to a lower back injury.

Pandya has started practising and even bowling in the nets, according to Gujarat Titans spin bowling coach Aashish Kapoor.

“Last two months I have been in Bahrain, I was coaching the National team over there. So, Nehra has been in constant touch with him from the time we have retained him and Nehra has been talking to him. He has also spoken about how to arrange and where to arrange practice sessions for him and get those things done,” Gujarat Titans’ spin bowling coach Aashish Kapoor told ANI.

“Asking him to play a few Ranji Trophy games before he turns up for a camp which may be in March with some point in March may be in Mid-March. So, he has been also starting to bowl that’s what he has told Nehra. He has started to bowl, he is bowling well and batting he has no problems in any case. Because mainly we want to know whether he can bowl for us like how in the Indian team. So, if he can bowl and bat both it is an added advantage. As there are not too many all-rounders in India (medium pace all-rounders). He is the only one that you can think of at the moment so if you have that all-rounder with you then I think you are on the plus side,” Kapoor said.

Due to injury, Pandya did not bowl much for Mumbai in the IPL 2021. And he did not bowl much for India in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. Pandya’s contribution to his side as a hitter. And a bowler will provide additional alternatives for his team’s management. Or will undoubtedly add variety to the bowling attack.
