Sri Lanka tour of India 2017/18 – I asked for the rest says Hardik Pandya

Sri Lanka tour of India 2017/18 - I asked for the rest says Hardik Pandya

“To be honest, I asked for it, because my body was not alright,” he told CNN-News 18. “I want to play cricket when I’m totally fit and I’m giving my 100% and I was not able to give that because of a few niggles here and there, which is bound to happen because of the amount of cricket which I have played over this one year.”

“I have played 30 ODIs, 25 T20Is and three Test matches in one-and-a half-years,” he said. “I have not played this much cricket in my total cricketing career in such a short time. As an allrounder, it’s difficult. I do my bowling, I do my batting, I do fielding as well, and managing my workload is very important right now because I have not played much cricket in my life.”

“People keep on talking about away series. People keep on talking about England tours, South Africa tours, Australia tours, which is important, which is hard. I like these kinds of challenges I keep on getting in my life. That keeps me going all the time. It may be an important thing for me, important to have an allrounder who can contribute in bowling and batting both. I might be the difference, let’s see. I’ve never played in South Africa. I’m pretty sure we’re going to do well.”
