T20 World Cup: Exhausted Hardik Pandya gets recovery break, focus on KL Rahul at nets | Cricket News

SYDNEY: KL RahulThe Indian team of coaches with eagle eyes tracking foot inactivity against a quality speed attack was overseen by the team of Indian coaches during the team’s net practice in Tuesday while exhausted Hardik Pandya was given a rest before the T20 World Cup match against the Netherlands.
As the next game is against the Netherlands on Thursday, India can afford to give Pandya a break, if needed, and can give it a try. Deepak HoodaThe user can type in any position and can also interrupt quickly within the voiceover of the screen.
But, there is no conclusive indication that Pandya could miss a World Cup match even against a weaker team like the Netherlands.
The entire bowling unit (rescuing R Ashwin), along with the almighty Pandya, was completely rested. Without training on the eve of the game, fast pitchers will come back fresh for the next game.
In Pandya’s case, his workload in the previous game – against Pakistan – was maximal and he was cramped at the end of the chase in India.
The reason (for Pandya’s cramping) is attributed to the overall size of the MCG where a lot of the shots don’t travel to the boundary and while the batters need to sprint for that extra run, the hitters do. The batter is covering more of the deep.
Not forgetting, Hardik has thrown four balls at an average rate of nearly 140 clicks since Axar Patel’s crushing defeat.
No other player is more important than Pandya when it comes to one-sided balance and the team leadership always wraps him in cotton wool, knowing he is the team’s x-factor in the big games.
Upon leaving the compound, Pandya was asked if his cramps were severe.
“No, I don’t think so. Maybe it’s because I’ve never ridden so many two-wheelers in T20 International,” he replied.

Rahul’s problem
India may have won one of the most thrilling as well as grueling T20I matches in World Cup history against Pakistan but without a defeat of magnitude like Virat Kohli, Rohit SharmaKL Rahul, Dinesh Karthik, Rishabh PantDeepak Hooda both returned to the SCG grid in a two-hour trading session.
The biggest complaint against Rahul is that he never scores big when given the chance.
He has lost to Pakistan in 3 of his last 4 matches even though he has had some dizzying hits in bilateral matches against Australia and South Africa.
Bowlers have now deciphered that an “imaginary fourth off the stump” line with Rahul at a good speed can yield results.
At the start of innings, a serve on the channel or with a slight inward movement caught him off guard because he had been hit or tried before.
In reality, Mohammed Siraj, Shardul Thakur and Harshal Patel repeatedly told to leave the bowl outside the stump.
On one occasion Rahul looked uncomfortable as he was forced to close his bat face. If it’s a match situation, it will interest the scorer.
When Yuzvendra Chahal bowled, Rahul tries to kick back and pulls a few towards the middle of the wicket against the turn.
