Hardik Pandya successfully underwent surgery for his lower-back injury last Saturday. The Indian all-rounder picked up this injury during the Asia Cup in UAE last year. However, Hardik Pandya recovered in time to play the 12th season of Indian Premier League (IPL) and the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup in England. The injury once again resurfaced after India’s home T20I series against South Africa last month. Pandya travelled to London earlier this month with Team India physiotherapist Yogesh Parmar. The Baroda all-rounder is expected to stay out of cricketing action for a minimum of 12-16 weeks. He is likely to be declared match-fit before the thirteenth edition of IPL next year.

The all-rounder was forced to skip the Test series against South Africa at home. The player was also rested for India’s tour of West Indies which immediately followed the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup. He also looks all set to miss out on the upcoming home series against Bangladesh and West Indies. Hardik, however, will be eyeing a comeback to the national side when Team India tours New Zealand next year for 3-ODIs, 2 Test matches and 5 T20Is.
