After being eliminated from the series at home against New Zealand, reports suggest that Hardik pandya He is hesitant to be chosen for the next South African tour due to fitness issues.

According to Inside Sport, Hardik was asked to report on National Cricket Academy (NCA), where he will have to undergo rehabilitation and must demonstrate his physical condition before returning to the Indian team.

Your recovery from injury will depend primarily on rest. You should visit the NCA soon and we will accept a call regarding your inclusion in the South Africa tour depending on your physical condition.“A BCCI official told Inside Sport.

Hardik played his last test match against England in 2018. Since then, he has not been in contention for red ball cricket.

The official also confirmed that Hardik is currently fit enough to pass the required fitness test for the longer format.

Right now, he’s nowhere near the level of fitness required for test cricket. He needs time and we don’t want to rush things as was the case before the World Cup. If ready, it will be shipped for ODI and T20 series.”, Added the official.

Hardik may not even appear for Baroda in the next Vijay Hazare Trophy. The selectors want him to be fully fit before playing any game.

Playing at Vijay Hazare will depend on your physical condition. Big series are coming and it’s better for him to be fit than to play at Hazare. But that’s a call to take after you’re fully fit. At the moment, it is not. If he wants to play, it’s up to him,“The official concluded.
