Hardik Pandya, the all-rounder of the Indian cricket team, has become difficult to be selected for the South African tour. According to the report, the selectors want Hardik to prove his fitness and appear before the National Cricket Academy (NCA) for their selection.

We tell you that Hardik played as a hitter in the match against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup. However, after that, he bowled, but did not look completely fit. His injury was believed to be minor and he was likely to be selected for the home series against New Zealand, but he was ruled out due to injury.

A BCCI official told a sports website: “You will have to rest until the injury heals, so that you can test your fitness by visiting the NCA soon, based on which we will make a decision on your participation in the South African tour. “. “

The official also said that Hardik is currently not quite fit and is cause for concern. The official added: “At this time he is not fit enough to play test cricket. He needs time to recover from his injury and we do not want to rush things as happened before the World Cup. If he goes, he will be selected to the ODI and T20 series.

It is worth noting that Venkatesh Iyer, who played for Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League, was selected in place of Hardik in the T20 series against New Zealand. However, captain Rohit Sharma fed Venkatesh as a hitter in the first two games, but also had him pitched in the third T20.
