Back from a lengthy layoff due to injury, Mumbai Indians all-rounder Hardik Pandya says he is now in good shape physically and mentally, and ready for the Indian Premier League starting September 19.
Hardik says the back injury he suffered last year motivated him to work harder.
“The way I’m hitting the ball right now, the shape I’m in, the mental space I’m in, it is just a matter of time that I go and spend some time on the ground and I think things will come out pretty well,” Pandya told Mumbai Indians. “No matter how far I go from the game, no matter how long I stay out, when I come back, it has to be worth it. I have prepared very well and I think, great things are coming ahead.”
