Possibility of missing the next match against England
Pandya suffered an ankle injury while bowling just three balls in India’s 8-wicket win over Bangladesh. However, according to board sources, the injury is not serious but may take some time to heal. News18 CricketNext quoted a BCCI official as saying, “Hardik is likely to miss the next match against England in Lucknow. “At this stage it is a precaution and nothing serious.”

Shami was replaced by the Gujarat Titans captain, who was ruled out of the match against New Zealand. Mohammed Shami and Suryakumar Yadav were included in the playing eleven for the first time in the ongoing World Cup. Shami took 5 wickets for 54 runs. With Pandya unlikely to join the team on Sunday, the Indian team may take the field with the playing eleven of the previous match.
