Hardik Pandya Press Conference: Tomorrow (Thursday) is going to be a memorable day for Team India’s star all-rounder Hardik Pandya. He is ready to captain India in ODI cricket for the first time. Regular skipper Rohit Sharma is out of the first ODI and Hardik will lead the team in his absence. Before the ODI against Australia, Hardik has given a surprising statement.
Please tell that Hardik was not a part of the Indian team in the four-match Test series against Australia. Rohit Sharma-led team won the series 2-1. Team India has confirmed its place in the final of the World Test Championship to be held in England. When Hardik was asked when he would return to the Test, he gave a surprising answer.
Why is Hardik Pandya not ready for Test cricket?
The first ODI between India and Australia will be played on Friday, March 17 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Earlier, during the press conference, Hardik Pandya said about Test cricket, ‘I have not done even 1 percent work to earn a place in the Test team. So it is not morally right to replace someone, if I want a place in the Test team, I will earn my place. But until that happens, I am not going to play Tests.
Team India suffered a major setback before the ODI series against Australia. Middle order batsman Shreyas Iyer, who has been the highest run-scorer in ODIs for the Indian team for the last 1-2 years, has been ruled out of this series due to injury. Please tell that the BCCI has given this command to Hardik by removing KL Rahul from the post of vice-captain. Rohit Sharma will return to the team as captain from the second ODI.
