Hardik Pandya Half Fit…, ‘the big statement of the legend; Here’s what Shreyas Iyer said

ODI World Cup 2023 : The echo of the Indian team’s consecutive victories in the World Cup is being heard all over the world. The team has not lost a single match in the tournament so far. However, the team has faced some hurdles at many places. Like Hardik Pandya’s injury and Shreyas Iyer’s fourth consecutive flop. Now, former veteran fast bowler of Pakistan team Shoaib Akhtar has said a big thing about these two players.

Shreyas may be out after Hardik’s return
Speaking on his YouTube channel, Shoaib Akhtar said, “Hardik Pandya being half-fit is not good for the Indian bowling attack because they can drop a bowler when Hardik comes back in the team but according to me you can play with Shreyas. Can drop Iyer when Hardik comes and doesn’t drop any bowler.”

Let us tell you that Shreyas Iyer has been given a chance at number four in the team in this World Cup, but he is continuously performing poorly. Even in the match against England in Lucknow, Iyer’s bat scored only 4 runs in 16 balls.

Praising the bowling of the Indian team, Akhtar said, “People used to say that India wins matches by batting. Look today, they are doing the same with bowling also. They had to defend 229 runs and they not only defended a small score but also won by 100 runs. This is a big thing. Hats off to Indian bowling, especially Bumrah, thanks a lot. If the Indian team remains unbeaten till the final and wins the title, it will be a great world record and I am hopeful that India will do well in the semi-finals and final.”
