While interacting with the media ahead of the first Test match, Virat Kohli had said that all-rounders like Hardik Pandya and Shardul Thakur, who can perform well with the ball and bat, go a long way in helping the team win. Hardik has done well for us in the past. He is getting back on track. But yes, these types of cricketers definitely help the team in a big way.

Hardik Pandya’s absence is hurting Team India
Before the match, while interacting with the media, Kohli said that at present our team is missing an all-rounder like Hardik Pandya. He has not been bowling ever since Pandya underwent back surgery. That’s why he is not getting a chance in the Test team. He is being fed in limited overs cricket. In such a situation, Shardul Thakur is a big possibility for us. It has become very important to play this role not only for this series but also for Shardul Thakur to move forward.
