New Delhi. After a spectacular victory in the final of the T20 World Cup 2024, Team India is now eyeing the final of the World Test Championship. Last time Australia defeated India. Meanwhile, Sunil Gavaskar believes that the arrival of Hardik Pandya in the Indian Test team can strengthen the team. Hardik has not played Test cricket for about 7 years. He plays only T20 cricket and ODI cricket for India. He is the captain of Mumbai Indians in the IPL.

During an interview, Sunil Gavaskar said, “Yes, Hardik Pandya should play. I think in the next two months, the team management should motivate Hardik Pandya to play Test cricket. If he bowls and bats two overs a day, then Team India can be invincible and they are sure to reach the final of the World Test Championship and they can beat Australia in Australia.”

Let us tell you that Hardik Pandya started his Test career brilliantly. But due to injury, he was able to play only 11 matches. He last played Test cricket in September 2018. In those 11 Test matches, Pandya has scored 532 runs in 18 innings at an average of 31.29, including one century and four half-centuries. He has taken 17 wickets with the red ball, with his best performance being 5 wickets for 28 runs. Team India has reached the WTC final twice, but lost once to New Zealand and once to Australia.
