Hardik Pandya could have been valuable addition for India in WTC final: Ponting
Dubai, May 30 (PTI) Batting legend Ricky Ponting feels that India should have picked Hardik Pandya in their squad for the World Test Championships final against Australia in London, saying his all-round abilities could have turned out to be the deciding factor in the one-off game.
Pandya has not played a Test since 2018 and he has opted sit out of the five-day format due to ongoing fitness concerns.
But Ponting felt Pandya could have played in the winner-takes all clash at The Oval from June 7-11. Primarily because he has bowled in more or less every game in the just-concluded IPL for Gujarat Titans which he captains.
