World Cup 2023: Doctor’s evaluation awaited as Hardik Pandya injury seriousness in focus

Doctor’s evaluation awaited as Hardik Pandya injury seriousness in focus: The Indian team will have no idea the full impact of Hardik Pandya’s injury for at least another day. During Bangladesh’s innings, the all-rounder was limited to bowling three deliveries due to a twisted left ankle, sustained on Thursday, October 19, in Pune.

The injury occurred during Hardik Pandya’s first over of the game, the ninth over, as he tried to block the ball with his leg during the follow-through. With the assistance of his walkers, he hobbled off the field and Virat Kohli ultimately completed the over.

Hardik Pandya underwent a scan, the results of which are still awaited, according to a statement made by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Thursday.

According to Cricbuzz, the scan results are being forwarded to a specialist in Mumbai, and the doctor’s evaluation will be used to determine the next course of action.

After being inspected, Hardik Pandya was put back on the ground. It’s known that he would have batted if it had been required, even if it wasn’t. India won the World Cup match by seven wickets with ease after chasing down Bangladesh’s 257-run target.

It has been reported that Pandya’s ankle is giving him a lot of trouble. After hurting his ankle, the agony was so bad that he was unable to finish the over for Bangladesh.

When asked about Pandya’s condition after the game, wicketkeeper-batsman KL Rahul replied that he was unaware of his teammate’s injury situation. “I just noticed him in the changing room. Hopefully tonight, but I’m not sure, the medical team should have some updates,” KL Rahul stated during the post-game discussion.
