Former head coach of the Indian team Ravi Shastri has also said that the pressure on the players is increasing. Now he has given a big reaction to Hardik Pandya. Talking to India Today, Ravi Shastri said that Hardik Pandya will also not be seen in ODI cricket after the 2023 World Cup. Ravi Shastri also said that more cricketers can be included in this list.
What did the legendary cricketer Ravi Shastri say?
Ravi Shastri said in this special interview, that Test cricket will always remain important. Players now choose in advance which format they want to play. It is clear in Hardik Pandya's mind that he does not want to play anything else. He will play 50-over cricket now because there is a World Cup in India next year. After that, you can also see him taking retirement from 50 overs.
He further said, not only Hardik Pandya but you will see the same thing happening to other players as well. Players will choose their format and they have the right to do so. Hardik Pandya will also be seen only after you play T20.
Hardik Pandya did well after IPL
Hardik Pandya has not been able to establish himself well in any format so far. After IPL 2022, he is definitely getting a chance in T20 and ODI. He also suffered a lot due to the injury. He is still battling a little bit from the injury. Seeing this, to some extent, the words of Ravi Shastri seem to be true. Maybe he should not say goodbye to ODIs on behalf of Ben Stokes.
Pandya will definitely consider it. He is 28 years old and in terms of fitness, he can make a big decision ahead. Currently doing well in T20 and ODI. In the future, he can also become the captain of T20. Now he has also got the experience of captaincy in T20. In IPL 2022, the Gujarat team lifted the trophy under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya.
