Hardik Pandya in exile before T20 World Cup, misses Team India flight

T20 World Cup: Hardik Pandya travelling to New York after vacationing at undisclosed location, to join squad for first training session in USA

A question that was troubling Indian fans for the last days – Where is Hardik Pandya? The Mumbai Indians skipper and Team India vice captain was not spotted departing to USA with the first batch of players. Now it has been revealed that Pandya is in exile before the start of the ICC T20 World Cup, as he went on to miss the Team India flight.


As per reports, Hardik Pandya had left the country after the conclusion of IPL 2024. After vacationing, he is currently traveling to New York to join the rest of the team ahead of the first practice in USA. The first batch of Indian stars departed for USA on 25th May night.

Hardik Pandya was not seen with his Indian teammates. In fact he was vacationing in an undisclosed location. The Indian vice captain is expected to join the Indian camp right on time for the first training session in USA.

Wrong turns, Wrong timings & Wrong Conditions

Hardik Pandya has been on the receiving end of fans outrage in IPL 2024. He was appointed as the skipper of Mumbai Indians and the team performed poorly. He was constantly booed by home and away fans whenever he was at the centre of action. This led to a huge drop on his performances.

Reports emerged of a rift in the MI dressing room with quite a few players siding with former skipper Rohit Sharma. Amidst all these, his cousin brother was accused for fraud and stealing money from his enterprise. Adding more trouble are the recent divorce rumours of him with his wife Natasa Stankovic.

For Hardik, he needs to head into the ICC T20 World Cup with a clean head. He will have big responsibilities on his shoulders as he is the vice captain of the side. With India tipped as favourites to lift the trophy, the nation banks on Hardik’s all-round prowess to break the ICC trophy jinx.
