Hardik Pandya hasn’t been in the best of forms recently and it could have a major impact on the balance of the Indian team in the upcoming T20 Worldcup 2021 in UAE. He hasn’t been bowling to his fullest strengths yet and it is going to be a big worry for the Indian management as they haven’t got many players like Hardik Pandya.

Pandya managed to hit just 9 runs and a duck in the two innings he played in the ODI series against Sri Lanka and a lot more was expected out of him as a senior player in the team. India will need to look for options and here are 3 players who can replace Hardik Pandya in the Indian team.

Shardul Thakur has already shown the Indian management that he is no mug with the bat and he played one of the best knocks by a lower order batter in the test series in Australia. The Mumbai pacer is a regular wicket-taker and has got all the variations in his kitty to outclass the batsman.

Thakur may not provide the same impact that Hardik can provide in the Indian middle order, however, he is a powerful striker of the cricket ball, and India cannot afford to pick a playing XI without bowling all-rounders. He did very well in the England limited-overs series and India will need his services if Hardik Pandya isn’t recovering from his poor form.
