Amidst all the action of India v Pakistan, there occurred an incident that gave massive worries to India. The Hardik Pandya injury sent shivers to the Indian fans. While he was bowling the 18th over of the Pakistan innings, all was going well until he felt some discomfort as soon as he finished his run-up of the 5th ball.

The visuals revealed that the all-rounder was in a lot of pain. He was holding his hip region and very soon, was lying on the turf. The scenes weren’t pretty as Hardik is a strong man and to see him hurting like that, just showed the intensity of the injury. The medical staff rushed to the middle and the cricketer wasn’t able to move.

A stretcher was brought on the ground and Hardik was carried off the field on it. It looked ugly and those were worrying signs for India. He took no further part in the game. To complete his over, Kedar Jadhav chipped in. Manish Pandey fielded as a substitute for the remainder of the innings.

While the match carried on, BCCI provided an update on the Hardik Pandya injury. “Injury update – Hardik Pandya has an acute lower back injury. He is able to stand at the moment and the medical team is assessing him now. Manish Pandey is on the field as his substitute,” announced BCCI on Twitter.

By the looks of it, the injury seemed dense but it’s good news that he is able to stand up. The 24-year-old is currently under medical assessment and further updates are awaited. India would hope that he recovers soon as the right-hander is an integral part of the limited-overs squads.

India went on to defeat Pakistan quite comprehensively. Batting first, Pakistan was restricted to just 162 courtesy 3 wickets each by Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Kedar Jadhav. The Indian batsmen, without too much fuss, chased down the score in 29 overs having 8 wickets in hand.
