The biggest T20 league will get off in a few days with a match between CSK and KKR. Because two different teams have entered the competition, it will be a 65-day tournament this year. The Gujarat Titans and the Lucknow Super Giants are two new clubs in the 2018 season. However, some players are experiencing fitness concerns before the IPL’s start, which will be the most challenging obstacle for all clubs. Gujarat Titans captain Hardik Pandya is one of the names on this list. For the past few months, the all-rounder has struggled with his fitness.
He last played in a competitive game in the UAE during the T20I World Cup. There is, however, some good news for Gujarat supporters. The BCCI performed a fitness test on the all-rounder, which he passed. And he’s fully qualified to compete in the 15th instalment of the cash-rich league.
All injured players were subjected to a fitness test by BCCI:-
All white-ball cricketers in India were invited to a camp conducted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India. The camp was held to assess their fitness levels in light of the cricket that Indian players will be playing. According to a BCCI source who spoke to the New Indian Express, Hardik was one of the guys who attended the camp among other players. And everyone was waiting to see if the all-rounder would be given the go-ahead. Ultimately, Hardik has passed the test and will be ready for the entire IPL season. And if he can play all of the matches without getting hurt, he’ll have a better chance of returning to the Indian setup.
During the test, Hardik Pandya also bowled:
During his test, the all-rounder also rolled his arm over, according to reports. And it’s been learned that he was cleared for bowling as well. Hardik Pandya requested that the medical team examine his bowling, and he was cleared to bowl. Even though he was said to be bowling at a pace of 135 kilometres per hour. With a score of 17 or higher, the all-rounder also passed the Yo-Yo exam, which is considered the most rigorous fitness test. According to the BCCI source, On March 28, the Gujarat Titans will face the Lucknow Super Giants at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai to begin their season.
