‘Doesn’t look like he will’: Kapil Dev shares his thoughts on Hardik Pandya playing Test cricket – The Indian Express

Former India legend and World cup winning captain Kapil Dev said that he does not feel all-rounder Hardik Pandya will be playing too many Tests in the near future. According to the 64-year-old, Pandya can be beneficial for team India in red-ball cricket, but he doesn’t see that happening.
“Doesn’t look like he will,” said Kapil Dev in an interview with TOI.
“I saw his photograph on the billboard today. I don’t know whether they did any touch-up or not, but in that, he looked like having one of the finest bodies we have in the country. Yes, he should play more cricket because he has so much ability. If he is fit, he should play Test cricket also,” he added.
Pandya is one of the most talented all-rounders in world cricket but his career has been plagued by injuries, and this has limited his ability to play Test cricket.
However, Pandya has said that he is still committed to playing Test cricket, and he is working hard to get back to full fitness.
It remains to be seen whether Pandya will be able to overcome his injury problems and become a regular in the Indian Test team.

Hardik Pandya played his last Test match against England at The Rose Bowl, in August 2018.
Kapil Dev also spoke about Team India’s chances in the upcoming ODI World Cup and said, “They need to come in the top four (semifinals) first. After that, anything is possible. You need a stroke of luck from the semifinal stage onwards and need things to go your way. But the most important thing is to reach the top four.”
