Mumbai Indians star all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who is making a comeback after a long time recovering from injury, said that it inspired him to work harder and he is fully fit physically and mentally. Mumbai Indians will face three-time champions Chennai Super Kings on 19 September in the first match of the Indian Premier League-13.
In such a situation, being in the form of Pandya will prove to be very important. Pandya said in a video posted on the Twitter handle of Mumbai Indians, “The way I am facing the ball and I am in a mental and physical rhythm, I will not have trouble going to the field to show the natural game.”

He said, ‘No matter how far away I am from the game, why should I not be out for so long, but there should be utility when I return. I have prepared a lot and the time will be good.

Pandya, who recently became the father of a son, said, ‘I enjoy playing IPL a lot. I want to come back strongly. He said that injuries are part of the player’s life and motivate him to do better. He said, ‘I have taken a lesson in my life that injuries will continue. Nobody wants to get hurt but these are part of the player’s life. This inspires me to work harder. ‘
