‘India made a big mistake by not including Pandya in the team’, former player said the reason

The final match of the World Test Championship (WTC) will be played between Australia and India from June 7 at The Oval in London. For this, both teams have long been announced. Looking at the conditions in England, Shardul Thakur has been listed in the Indian team as a fast and complete bowler. Meanwhile, former Kangaroo captain Ricky Ponting called the non-inclusion of Hardik Pandya a huge mistake for the Indian team.

When Hardik Pandya got injured in the year 2018, since then he has not played a single match in Test cricket. Considering his physical condition, Hardik has now decided to return to the test format. However, according to Ricky Ponting, Hardik Pandya should have been included in the Indian team for the WTC final. Let us tell you that in IPL Season 16, Hardik took 3 wickets with the ball and scored 346 runs with the bat.

Ricky Ponting said in a statement in the ICC review that I think a player like Hardik Pandya could have been important for the Indian team in this single Test match for India. I know he doesn’t want to go back to Test cricket considering his fitness. But considering the importance of this match, he could have come back.

Ponting further said in his statement that considering the conditions in England, Hardik Pandya could be the X factor for the Indian team. He should have been selected in the team for just this game and then see what he could bring to the team with the bat and ball.
