Pandya to go through net-session to bowl against New Zealand

Hardik Pandya will undergo a second net session to be cleared for the World T20 clash against New Zealand

Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya is set to undergo a fitness test on Friday after being deemed good to bowl full quota in the upcoming T20 World Cup clash against New Zealand, according to a report by Cricbuzz.

On Wednesday Pandya went through fitness drills, which included short sprints, under the watchful eyes of strength and conditioning coach Sohum Desai and physio Nitin Patel. After that he bowled close to 20 minutes to Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Shardul Thakur in one of the nets.

India chief coach Ravi Shastri and mentor Mahendra Singh Dhoni closely monitored Pandya's progress. Following his brief bowling stint, Hardik took throwdowns from batting coach Vikram Rathour.

During the opening clash against Pakistan, Pandya withdrew from fielding duties after complaining of shoulder pain during the first innings. Subsequent MRI scans have cleared him.

Pandya scored 11 off eight balls against Pakistan, a game which India lost by ten wickets.
