Kapil Dev backs Hardik Pandya’s selection for T20 WC 2021

Legend, Former Indian Captain Kapil Dev backed the selection of all-rounder Hardik Pandya for the T20 World Cup 2021.  There have been a lot of discussions over the selection of Hardik Pandya for the world cup after his miserable performance in the second leg of IPL followed by his inability to bowl.

After recovering from the injury, Hardik Pandya was not fit like earlier. He was unable to bowl like in the past continuously. Many former greats have questioned the selection of Hardik and predicted his selection for the final eleven in T20 WC would affect the plans of Indian Skipper Virat Kohli.

Gautam Gambhir suggested picking Hardik for the final eleven if he does proper bowling in both warm-up matches. He also said that there was a difference between bowling in the nets and bowling against great players like Babar Azam in WC. 

In an interview with SportsKeeda, Kapil Dev said an all-rounder always makes a massive difference to a team. Hardik Pandya, not bowling will not impact India’s chances, but it’ll make a difference in terms of Virat Kohli’s options. If Hardik can bowl 2 overs, it’ll give more balance to India in the T20 World Cup 2021.
