Published on

Hardik Pandya, a key player in the Indian cricket team, has shared an emotional message on social media after an ankle injury forced him out of the remainder of the 2023 Cricket World Cup.

Pandya took to social media to convey his sentiments, stating, “Tough to digest the fact that I will miss out on the remaining part of the World Cup. I’ll be with the team, in spirit, cheering them on every ball of every game. Thanks for all the wishes, the love, and the support has been incredible. This team is special, and I’m sure we’ll make everyone proud. Love, always, HP.”

The injury occurred during a match against Bangladesh on October 19 when Pandya lost his footing while bowling. Despite immediate attention from the Indian physio team on the ground, the severity of his ankle injury required him to be assisted off the field. This incident raised concerns about his return, with fans hopeful that he would recover in time for India’s match against England. However, as the match progressed, it became evident that Pandya would not be able to participate.

On November 4, the International Cricket Council (ICC) officially announced that Pandya would not be able to continue in the tournament and confirmed Prasidh Krishna as his replacement.

Pandya’s injury has necessitated significant adjustments to India’s team lineup for the World Cup 2023. Mohammed Shami and Suryakumar Yadav have been introduced into the squad, while Shardul Thakur, who had initially made his way into the team, has been placed on the bench.

The upcoming clash between India and South Africa is scheduled for match no. 37 of the 2023 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup on Sunday, November 5, 2023, at 2:00 PM IST. The match promises to be a thrilling encounter between two formidable teams in the world of cricket.
