Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who is recovering from lower-back injury, is regaining fitness and has started his training to make a comeback on the field. The 26-year old took to Instagram and posted a video of him taking rounds of a ground. Along with that, Pandya can also be seen smashing the gym hard by doing exercises like reverse lunges, recline pull-ups on TRX and body balancing. The video clip clearly displays Pandya’s ambition to make a comeback and rock the field. Shikhar Dhawan Livens Up Hospital He Visited After Injury, Hardik Pandya Thinks Otherwise (See Pics).
“Been too long since I've been out there. No better feeling than to be back on the field” read the caption of the post. Pandya last played for India in the T20I series against South Africa in September. Post the series, the Baroda-born cricketer complained about his back issues and underwent back surgery in London. He is expected to regain full fitness till March and will eye to put up a great performance in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020. The all-rounder has been an instrumental part of the Indian team in recent times and thus the team management will want him to be fit as soon as possible.

Pandya can smash the best of the bowlers from the outset and is a handy pacer too. In a short span of time, the youngster has emerged a vital part of the team and has also guided the side to many victories. In his absence, Ravindra Jadeja has been given the responsibility to fill the all-rounder spot in ODIs and a good outing in upcoming India vs West Indies could well seal the spot for him. So, Pandya will certainly have to put up a great show in order to get back into the Indian colours.
