Hardik Pandya World Cup Selection: There has been a lot of discussion recently regarding the selection of Hardik Pandya for the T20 World Cup team. According to sources, Hardik Pandya was selected for the Indian team under pressure. The market of speculation has once again become hot due to the latest news. Jay Shah recently issued a statement addressing the T20 World Cup selection and it was speculated that Hardik Pandya was selected under pressure.

Actually, Rohit Sharma had said a few days ago that he does not want Hardik Pandya to be nominated for the T20 World Cup. Many other selectors, including chief selector Ajit Agarkar, supported the Indian captain’s decision, but under pressure, the all-rounder was included in the squad and made vice-captain.

The team has not been selected only on the basis of IPL performance – Jai Shah

Now that Jay Shah has given such a statement, it is being claimed that Hardik was selected for the World Cup under pressure. During an interview with Times of India, Jai Shah said,

The T20 World Cup team has a great mix of form and experience. Selectors cannot select the team based only on IPL performance. The experience of playing on foreign soil is also very valuable.

After Jay Shah’s statement, speculations have started that Hardik Pandya has been selected because of his international match experience. Even if his IPL performance has been disappointing.

Let us tell you that before IPL 2024, Mumbai Indians have taken an important decision regarding captaincy. All-rounder Hardik Pandya was made the captain of the team in place of Rohit Sharma. Fans, and possibly Rohit Sharma, were dissatisfied with how the matter unfolded. Later, big players protested to the management regarding Hardik Pandya.
