T20 World Cup 2024: The Indian team will play its first match in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 to be jointly hosted by West Indies and America on June 5 at the New York ground. At the same time, before this, the team will also get a chance to play a practice match to understand the situation there. In this match, the Indian team will try to give a chance to as many players as possible so that they can take the field with a better combination in the first match of the tournament.

In this World Cup, all the eyes of the fans are also going to be on Hardik Pandya, who has also been given the responsibility of the vice-captain of the Indian team for the mega tournament. Hardik got injured during the match against Bangladesh in the ODI World Cup 2023 played last year, after which he has not played a single international match. At the same time, he made a comeback in the 17th season of IPL but could not manage to perform well with the ball and bat. In such a situation, all eyes are on whether he will be able to play the role of a game changer for Team India in the upcoming T20 World Cup.

Hardik's performance in T20 World Cup has been like this so far

Hardik Pandya played for the first time in the T20 World Cup played in the year 2016, after which he was also a part of the team in the World Cups played in the years 2021 and 2022. At the same time, he has played a total of 16 matches so far in all three T20 World Cups, in which he has scored 213 runs at an average of 23.67, during this only one half-century innings has been seen. On the other hand, if we talk about his bowling performance, then Hardik has taken only 13 wickets at an average of 25.31. Out of the 16 matches in which Pandya has been a part of Team India's playing 11 in the T20 World Cup, the team has won 10.

Pandya's current form is not good

In the 17th season of IPL, Hardik Pandya, who was also captaining the Mumbai Indians team, was seen failing miserably in both his game and captaincy. While the Mumbai team finished the season at the last position in the points table, Hardik played 14 matches in which he managed to score just 216 runs at an average of 18 and could take just 11 wickets in bowling.
