Mumbai Indians all-rounder Hardik Pandya has given a positive update on his return to the bowling crease, saying that he will do so soon. “Run is important and especially when your team wins. It was important for my personal confidence but it was important for the team to score. We have to assess the wicket and adapt at the given time. The plans have to be simple and not the constraints.” But have to win. Ball-by-ball. There’s no choice but one thing is that these situations bring out the best in you. We realize it’s a do or die game, but we just focus on the controllable are doing,” Hardik told host broadcaster Star Sports ahead of the match against Delhi Capitals.

Commenting on hitting the bowling crease, he said: “Will come soon the effort is complete (I will bowl soon. Efforts are on).”

Mumbai Indians (MI) head coach Mahela Jayawardene on Friday said that Hardik could run into trouble with the bat if he tries too hard to bowl in the IPL.

Notably, since Hardik has undergone back surgery, he has not been bowling regularly.


“Since he hasn’t bowled since Sri Lanka, I think what we are trying to do is best for Hardik. We are talking to the Indian management, and make sure he is comfortable as soon as possible. Feel free to include him in his bowling schedule and prepare him,” Jayawardene said at a pre-match press conference on Friday. “(If Hardik can bowl in the IPL) we will have to watch and evaluate on a daily basis and see how he progresses.”

Delhi Capitals last suffered a loss against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) while Mumbai Indians registered a win over Punjab Kings in their previous matches. Rishabh Pant-led Delhi Capitals are at the second position in the points table while Mumbai Indians are at the sixth position.
