- Pandya brothers had a poor performance in IPL 2021
- Hardik Pandya has not been bowling for some time
- Krunal Pandya’s poor performance in IPL continues for some time
In the 15th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya can be seen playing for some other franchise instead of Mumbai Indians. According to media reports, Mumbai Indians are disillusioned with the Pandya Brothers and have not been retained by the most successful IPL franchise.
Before the official announcement of IPL 2022 Retention, there are reports that Mumbai Indians have also released wicketkeeper Ishan Kishan. However, Suryakumar Yadav has been retained in the team. It is being told that Mumbai has retained captain Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah and Kieron Pollard.
The Pandya Brothers were a flop in the 14th edition of IPL 2021. Both the brothers do not even look completely fit. Hardik is away from bowling at this time. Hardik has been finding it difficult to bowl after his back surgery.
Hardik scored 127 runs in 12 matches
In the last season of IPL, Hardik played 12 matches and scored a total of 127 runs. No half-century was scored with his bat. He hasn’t even been bowling in the IPL for the last two seasons. Talking about Hardik’s IPL career, he has scored 1476 runs in 92 matches with the help of 4 half-centuries. Apart from this, 42 wickets have also been taken.
Krunal was also a flop
Hardik’s elder brother Krunal Pandya also could not show anything special in the 15th season of IPL. Krunal played 13 matches and scored 143 runs in total. Krunal has not been able to perform much in the last 4 seasons. The 30-year-old has scored a total of 1143 runs in 84 IPL matches and has taken 51 wickets.
Hardik Pandya will not go on South Africa tour
Hardik has to bear the brunt of poor form by being out of the team. Hardik was part of the Indian team in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 but his performance there too was below average. In such a situation, he was dropped from the team from the home series against New Zealand. Now there are reports that he has sought time from BCCI to get himself fit and has decided not to tour South Africa.
