Sydney: Hardik Pandya is not in India’s test team against Australia (Australia). Despite this, the all-rounder, who has played white ball cricket brilliantly, said if the team management wanted them then nothing could stop them.
Hardik Pandya, who returned after back surgery, has yet to start playing regularly. He batted brilliantly in both ODI and T20 against Australia, as the visiting team managed to make the T20 series after losing 2 ODI series games.

When asked if he would like to stay for the 4-game test run from December 17th, Pandya said: “It’s a different type of game, I think I should be, I want to say i have no problem but ultimately the decision is up to management so yes i don’t think i can say much.
Pandya arrived in Australia after playing an important role in helping the Mumbai Indians win the IPL 2020 title. Indian all-rounder Pandya said that during the lockdown caused by the corona virus, he worked to bring the end of the match at the right time.
Pandya played an aggressive 42-on 22-ball round and was instrumental in India’s 6-wicket victory in the second T20 International against Australia. With his help, the visiting team scored 14 points in the final pass to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the T20 three-game series.
Pandya said in the post-match press conference: “ During the lockdown I wanted to focus on ending the match at the appropriate time. It doesn’t matter if I score more points or not. This all-rounder was nothing new in SCG conditions on Sunday, he won the last few matches in a similar situation while also losing a few.
He said, “I have been in such situations many times and have learned from my mistakes. I play with confidence and inspire myself and don’t get too confident. I always remember the moment we chased a big score and that helps. Pandya hit 2 sixes on fast pitcher Daniel Sams which helped India win with 2 balls in reserve.
He said: “ Instead of paying attention to what they do during the game, I pay attention to what I can do. It was a matter of two close-ups and it happened today. I always support myself. These are situations in which I have always played. Whatever the team’s needs, I always try to do it. It is a very simple thing. I want to play by looking at the scoreboard to know which bowler to aim for.
