The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is doing every possible thing to make star all-rounder Hardik Pandya fit. As per the reports in CricketNext, it learned that the governing body has made an 18-week fitness programme for him ahead of the T20 World Cup 2024.

Hardik Pandya is undergoing a rehabilitation plan at the NCA. BCCI wants the all-rounder to be completely fit for the cycle between 2024-26 when few ICC events are slated. The Mumbai Indians player could’ve made a comeback during South Africa and Afghanistan but governing body wasn’t keen.

BCCI wanted him to gain his full fitness, considering the T20 World Cup is around the corner. Hardik Pandya suffered an ankle injury during the ICC World Cup 2023 game against Bangladesh. He twisted his ankle in his follow-through and then was ruled out of the entire tournament.
