Last chance for Hardik Pandya to show his worth ahead of T20 World Cup 2024 with Shivam Dube close on heels

Last chance for Hardik Pandya to show his worth ahead of T20 World Cup 2024 with Shivam Dube close on heels

Hardik has given his fans nothing to cheer about in IPL 2024, with the all-rounder going for a lot of runs while bowling and scoring meagre runs while batting lower down the order.

Mumbai Indians captain Hardik Pandya has had a horrific run in IPL 2024. After taking over the reigns of MI from Rohit Sharma ahead of the season, Hardik has endured a torrid run of form, both team-wise and personally. With the T20 World Cup 2024 fast approaching, MI are due to play their last match against Lucknow Super Giants on Friday. This will be the last chance for Hardik to show his worth ahead of the gala tournament.

Hardik struggling to have impact

Hardik Pandya‘s form and his dip in confidence is bound to worry the Indian cricket fanatics who were looking expectantly at the all-rounder to come good ahead of the T20 World Cup 2024. However, Hardik has given his fans nothing to cheer about, with the all-rounder going for a lot of runs while bowling and scoring meagre runs while batting lower down the order.

Hardik Pandya’s torrid IPL 2024 campaign

In the ongoing IPL 2024, the MI all-rounder averages just over 18 runs per game, with 200 runs from 13 matches. In the bowling department, he has conceded 204 runs in 13 games at an economy rate of almost 11. His wickets tally of 11 isn’t too bad, but India have got quite the firepower in bowling to pick wickets. Rohit Sharma’s team would look a Hardik as an option that can stifle the opposition for runs in the middle overs.

Last chance to prove his worth

MI’s last game against LSG offers the final chance to Hardik to showcase his worth ahead of the T20 World Cup 2024. With fast-bowling all-rounder Shivam Dube close on heels, any slip ups can now cost Hardik his place in the team in spite of him being the vice-captain. Dube has shown he can finish matches, a place where Hardik has woefully lacked. Will the last game against LSG see the fearless Hardik Pandya that we are so used to seeing?
