Recently the team for the tour of South Africa was announced in all three formats. Which Pandya's name is not there nor is any update given regarding his injury. Meanwhile, former Indian cricketer Ajay Jadeja has given a statement taunting Hardik Pandya. Jadeja sarcastically said that Hardik is a rare talent and he is rarely seen on the ground.
This statement of Ajay Jadeja came when there was a discussion on a news channel about making Hardik Pandya the future captain of Team India. Jadeja said that you did not understand the meaning. Hardik Pandya is a rare talent and he is rarely seen on the ground. He is very rare and rightly so.

However, even then he was not completely fit and was not able to give his 100 per cent. Hardik Pandya was included in the team, but due to not bowling, he was not playing the role of all-rounder.
Hardik Pandya worked a lot on his bowling and was also playing the role of all-rounder in the World Cup 2023 team, but unfortunately, he suffered an ankle injury while bowling in the match against Bangladesh and had to be ruled out of the entire tournament. Now his name is not even in the T20 and ODI squads selected for the South Africa tour. BCCI has also not given any update on his injury.
