All eyes are on Team India’s all-rounder Hardik Pandya on the tour of England. They performed brilliantly in both the matches against Ireland. Now, this kind of performance is expected to be played against England in the series of three T-20 matches starting July 3. When the Pandya is out of the field, there is no chance to have fun. Hardik has shared a video on his twitter in which he is dancing and singing with ‘Gabbar Singh’ in the bathroom.

The Indian team’s first practice session focused on slow balls, and opener Shikhar Dhawan did the practice of batting on a short pitch thrown. Jasprit Bumrah is expected to bowl more economically than Hardik after being out due to a thumb injury, and therefore he wants to do more variety against Jason Rai, Jos Buttler and Jonny Bairstow.
Today, Hardik bowled Rohit Sharma for a long time on the Nets. He continued to take feedback from the Indian vice-captain continuously. Fast bowler Umesh Yadav and Siddharth Kaul also practised. On the second net, Dhawan practised on short pitch balls. He practised on a heavy plastic ball throwing down so that he could face the extra bounce in a good way.
Despite being hurt by playing football in Washington, Sunder, the Indian team started the practice with the game. Captain Virat Kohli was assisted by assistant coach Sanjay Bangar with throw-down practice. They throw balls at different lengths. Later, he also practised in front of the spinners.
