India’s crucial players are currently recovering from the injuries. After the end of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, players like Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were detected with injuries and were ruled out after playing one or two series for India.
The allrounder Hardik Pandya went under the surgery after he discovered with pain at the lower back. In one of the interviews, he said that he was managing his injury for five years and was avoiding the surgery. He finally took the decisions for the operation after he felt that he was not able to give his best to the team.
Currently, Pandya is an under-recovery period. He was last spotted with the team when he came as the spectator to see the third T20I match against West Indies at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
As everybody is busy celebrating the Christmas Holiday, Hardik Pandya is working hard to make a comeback in the game. He posted a video of him practising at the net session. The all-rounder seems to be fit while hitting the shots against the bowler.

Hardik Pandya included in India A squad
Pandya hasn’t played any competitive match for two-three months as he last played the game against South Africa in the T20I series. He went to NCA for rehabilitation but withdrew his name from the Academy.
His name has been included in India A squad which will be touring New Zealand to play the practice match ahead of the one-day series. The team management will be closely looking at Hardik Pandya’s performance. India will tour New Zealand in January next year to play 5 T20I matches, 3 ODIs and two Test matches, which are the part of ICC World Test Championship 2019-21.
