IND vs ENG: Hardik Pandya was injured during the match against Bangladesh. After this, he could not even play the important match of World Cup 2023 against New Zealand. He will not be able to play even against England. But he supported Suryakumar Yadav and said, “Suryakumar Yadav will be supported till Hardik is fit. He also said that unless Hardik comes into the team, Surya also has a chance to prove himself again in ODI cricket.

Following the injury to Hardik Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav and Mohammed Shami were called into the Indian squad for the Test series against New Zealand. Shami took five wickets but Surya was run out after scoring only 2 runs. But even against England, perhaps the team management has decided that Surya will play in the middle order. It remains to be seen whether there will be any changes in the bowling line-up. Because the pitch of Lucknow is considered helpful for spinners. In such a situation, there are speculations that three spinners can play. But whose place will be taken by the extra spinner is a big question. Mohammad Siraj is your main strike bowler. Mohammed Shami took five wickets.

What about KL Rahul?
KL Rahul was the vice-captain of the Indian team against New Zealand. When Rohit Sharma came on the field, he was seen captaining the team. “Now, a day before the match against England, the stand-in vice-captain said in the press conference,” “Hardik is a very important player for us.” He will not play against England. Surya will definitely get a chance to prove himself. Till Hardik arrives, our faith will be on Surya.
