Well, Hardik hasn’t played an international match since September last year and must be raring to go out on the field again. In fact, former Australian spinner Brad Hogg reckons that the all-rounder, who is set to become a father for the very first time, will have extra energy when he takes the field again.
“The all-rounder Hardik Pandya. He is looking to get back into cricket after a long time off due to injury. He’s also got a baby on the way as well. I just think those things will give him extra energy and he will become man of the tournament in the UAE,” Hogg said on his Youtube Channel.
Meanwhile, cricket fans are ecstatic as the official dates of Indian Premier League (IPL) are out. Brijesh Patel, IPL governing council chairman, announced that the tournament will get underway on September 19 while the finals will be played on November 8. However, owing to the COVID-19 crisis, the tournament will be played in UAE.
