Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya is not in the best of his form. He had a dreadful performance in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, scoring just 127 runs in 11 innings at a mediocre average of 14.11 and possessed a strike rate of 113.39. Furthermore, he did not bowl throughout the tournament, as Mumbai Indians (MI) failed to defend its crown.

Nevertheless, he has still managed to retain his spot in the ICC World T20, taking place in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). While calls were made to drop him, besides many criticising him for his poor form, the national selectors and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have decided to give him the opportunity.
