Srinagar: In a explosive claim, former New Zealand cricketer turned commentator Simon Doull has said that Mumbai Indians skipper Hardik Pandya is injured but isnt admitting it.

The comment came in the backdrop of Hardik Pandya opening the bowling for Mumbai Indians in the first two matches in IPL 2024 but refrained from bowling a single delivery in the next two encounters.

During the match against Royal Challengers Bengaluru on Thursday, Hardik bowled a single over but did not come back after conceding 13 runs.

“You go out and make a statement by opening the bowling in game no. 1, and suddenly, you are not required. He’s injured. I’m telling you there is something wrong with him. He is not admitting it. But there is something wrong with him for sure. That is my gut feeling,” Doull said on Cricbuzz.

Hardik was earlier asked about his decision to not bowl during the match against Delhi Capitals but the Mumbai Indians skipper said that he will be bowling at the ‘right time’.

“All good, will be bowling at the right time. Had it covered, so didn’t need to roll my arm over,” Hardik said.

Hardik was out of action for quite some time after suffering an ankle injury during the Cricket World Cup 2023 match against Bangladesh and he just played a couple of matches before taking the field in IPL 2024.
