India’s star all-rounder Hardik Pandya has announced his comeback to cricket in a grand fashion. He scored a blistering century coming off just 37 balls in the ongoing DY Patil Cup playing for Reliance 1. Pandya has now made a strong case for his inclusion in India’s squad for the upcoming three-match One-day International (ODI) series against South Africa.

Hardik, who underwent a surgery last year, was left out of the New Zealand tour after failing a fitness test.

Playing for Reliance 1 against CAG in a Group C game of the 16th DY Patil T20 Cup, Hardik scored 105 runs off just 39 balls, helping his side post 252/5 in 20 overs.

As seen in the video, Hardik can be seen hitting the ball ferociously in every corner of the ground. His blistering knock showed the spectators the old flamboyant Hardik who is famous for ferocious hitting.

Pandya has been on the road to recovery from a lower-back injury that he sustained almost five months ago. The 26-year-old, who missed out of the New Zealand tour, had started bowling at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru after returning from a check-up in the UK.

Earlier in the day, Western Railway chased down Canara Bank’s 174-7 in just 13.1 overs to seal their quarter-final place.
