Mumbai Indians star all-rounder Hardik Pandya had been away from cricket for a long time after undergoing back surgery, but now he has recovered and is ready to participate in the 13th season of the IPL.
Pandya said, ‘Being away from cricket for so long inspired me to work hard and I am now fully fit mentally and physically.’ Let us tell you that Mumbai Indians will play their first match against CSK and the match will take place on 19 September.
Mumbai Indian posted a video on Twitter:
Hardik Pandya has been an important part of the Mumbai Indians team and his rhythm will prove to be very beneficial for the team.
He said in a video posted on the Twitter handle of Mumbai Indians, “In my life, I have realised one thing that injuries would be with me. No one wants to get injured but I accept the fact that what I do, injuries will be a part.”
Pandya underwent back surgery last year:
He further said, ‘Luckily, me and Krunal had the privilege of having a gym at home, so because of that portion we were able to focus on our fitness, which I have always believed that if you become much fitter than what you are previously I think you can increase your skill level and adapt to lots of things which you have never seen before.’
Let us tell you that in November last year, Hardik had undergone back surgery in London. He was selected in the squad for the ODI series against South Africa but the series was canceled due to the Coronavirus epidemic. Pandya, who recently became father has said, “I enjoy playing IPL. I want to come back strongly. ”
