Rohit Sharma has given a big update on Hardik Pandya bowling by saying the all-rounder might start bowling before the start of the tournament.
“Kohli, Bumrah and Shami are resting today. We wanted to bat first as well, just wanted to try and get runs on the board. We want to make sure that we get the 6th bowling option, some options in the batting order as well, we’ll try all those things today. Hardik is coming along pretty well, but it’ll be a while before he will start to bowl. He hasn’t started bowling, but he should be ready by the start of the tournament. We have quality in the main bowlers, but you need an option for a 6th bowler,” said skipper Rohit Sharma, as quoted by Cricbuzz.
