After failing in the fitness test in Mumbai on Saturday, Pandya was also not selected for the India A team that will tour New Zealand. Now the captain of Tamil Nadu, Vijay Shankar has left for New Zealand after being selected in the India A team. The India A team will play 3 List A matches with the New Zealand A team in New Zealand. However, while choosing the team, the selectors will also keep in mind that the T20 World Cup will also be held this year in Australia.

Hardik Pandya Fitness News – India registered a resounding victory in the third T20 match against Sri Lanka on Friday. After this, it was expected that Pandya would be included in the team but unfortunately, he could not pass the fitness test and this clearly means that at the moment, Pandya is not fully fit for the tour of New Zealand. It will also be very interesting to see that the T20 team will also have the same players that were included in the ODI team. Kedar Jadhav who was in the ODI team is a weak link but there are many contenders for his place.

Hardik Pandya Fitness News – If the selectors choose a technically strong player, then Ajinkya Rahane can return. On the other hand, Mumbai player Suryakumar Yadav can also get a chance to play at number 5 or 6. Significantly, Sanju Samson and Suryakumar are in the India A team. The young batsman Shubhaman Gill, who was selected as a reserve player in the series against Sri Lanka, might just play the role of the third opener but the selectors will also not be able to ignore KL Rahul’s current form and experience in Test cricket.
It will also have to be seen whether Navdeep Saini will get a chance in this two-match Test series alongside Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, and Kuldeep Yadav and who will be the third spinner in the side alongside Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja?
