Despite the warm bowling performance, the selectors are happy to be back in form. But the only thing bothering them is his fitness. Hardik took frequent breaks in the middle of the game, handing over the reins of captaincy to Rashid Khan. Hardick also misses a game because of a swallow when he sometimes looks tired.

“It simply came to our notice then. The team decides how many times he will bowl in IPL. We understand, he is perfectly fit and well. We are keeping an eye on his performance in the IPL and he was still impressive. ” A member of the selection committee told InsideSport.
