India all-rounder Hardik Pandya recently underwent surgery to relieve him of his lower back issues that plagued him since the Asia Cup 2018. The issue was managed with rehabilitation until surgery became absolutely necessary. Pandya participated in the 2019 World Cup for India and made a decent impact.
He also played in the IPL which preceded the ICC tournament but was ruled out of the West Indies tour and home series against South Africa after it was discovered that his back injury had come back to haunt him further and BCCI decided to send him for consultation in Britain.
Meanwhile, it seems that Hardik Pandya is on the road to recovery from his surgery given that he has been posting videos for his fans on social media in which he has been seen doing various exercises. He has also been seen spending some time with his loved one Natasa Stankovic as well. Meanwhile, he recently posted a video of himself doing the Pilates exercise with his trainer as he works on getting his strength back.

The Baroda all-rounder is seen doing the strength-building exercise while working on his legs and lower back. In the video, he is also seen making some noises while doing the workout, which led to his India and Mumbai Indians teammate Jasprit Bumrah making fun of him. “Pilates to help me with my recovery.. Doing everything I can and more to get out there stronger and better than before. Thank you for all your encouraging wishes #TrustTheProcess,” Hardik tweeted.

On the other hand, Jasprit Bumrah himself is recuperating from the stress fracture on his lower back. He was lucky enough not to undergo surgery and was recently seen running at full speed in the Wankhede Stadium. Though it is said that he will be ready for the upcoming West Indies series, as per reports, the selectors are not willing to risk him until the next year’s tour to New Zealand where India will play 5 T20Is, 3 ODIs, and 2 Tests.
