Selectors face a dilemma for the Afghanistan series due to injuries | Hardik Pandya and Suryakumar Yadav

It’s clear now that Hardik Pandya and Suryakumar Yadav, the chosen ones to be captains in T20 games, can’t play in the upcoming short cricket series against Afghanistan next week. Their not being there has given Ajit Agarkar and his team a big problem.

The problem they have is about picking between the experienced one, Rohit Sharma, or taking a chance with someone like Shubman Gill. Other good choices for the pickers are Ravindra Jadeja and Shreyas Iyer. But this is not the main problem they have right now.

Cricbuzz understands that the problem is that selectors are still unsure if they should focus on the next five months leading up to the Twenty20 World Cup or try looking ahead and nurturing a younger talent. The choice will be made soon during the planned meeting of our team today.

People on the inside say it won’t be an easy choice. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli talked about playing T20 games. They reportedly said they want to play again; it’s been over a year since their last time in this game format. Their last T20 game was on November 10, 2022, during the Cricket World Cup semifinals against England in Australia.

The choice team is mostly thinking about the future and giving opportunities to kids. However, they also have great respect for Rohit’s strong leadership skills and batting abilities in recent times. When Rohit makes a claim, it’s hard to ignore.

Now, Agarkar is in Cape Town with teammates Shiv Sundar Das and Salil Ankola. They will meet with Subrata Banerjee and S Sharath in India during the call. At this point, we can’t underplay the part that Rahul Dravid is playing. The main coach will play a big part in making decisions.

Pandya, not fully healed from last year’s injury that made him miss most World Cup games, shared a video of his workout. He is thought to be ready for the Indian Premier League (IPL) where he will lead his team, the Mumbai Indians. Surya hurt his ankle and won’t be able to play for at least a month.


Hardik Panday Will Come Back in IPL 2024


Hardik Pandya, a famous all-rounder from India for the ICC ODI World Cup 2023, got hurt and couldn’t play. This led to many people talking about his healing process and his return to cricket for Team India. An injury made him miss the tour of South Africa recently, and some reports said he might not play in the IPL 2024. But the fans who really want to see his return can hope for some good news because he’s working out in the gym again. This might suggest that he will soon be back playing cricket.

Before India’s T20I games against Afghanistan begin on January 11, news says that the 30-year-old might not play in this important series. But there’s hope that he might return to the IPL in 2024.

Pandya, who was first kept by Gujarat Titans before the IPL Auction 2024, got traded to Mumbai Indians. The 30-year-old’s comeback to his team and winning four IPL trophies (2015, 2017, 2019, and 2020) was a big deal for the fans.

Before the IPL 2024 auction, Pandya made an amazing change from Gujarat Titans to Mumbai Indians. Then he was chosen as their captain for next season. The all-rounder took over from India’s captain Rohit Sharma, who had been leading Mumbai Indians in IPL for 10 seasons previously.

In 31 games for Gujarat Titans from 2022-23, Pandya made a total of 833 runs. He averaged about 40 and had a hitting rate that was more than one in three tries. He scored six times half as many runs needed to be called “half-century” and his highest score reached up to the br He also had 11 wickets for the team, with his best score being 3/17.

With the new job as captain for a superstar, it is also like ending Rohit Sharma’s ten-year time being in charge of Mumbai Indians. He led them to big wins five times (2013, 2015, 2017 and then again both years in pandemic hit period That year got shortened).
