After smashing a 39-ball 105 in a domestic match, India all-rounder Hardik Pandya said it helped him test his fit-again body. Panya was happy after the innings which would help him claim place in the national side again.

Pandya smashes a hundred

Indians will take on South Africa in an ODI series at home in the middle of March. Just a few days left for the series and the superstar Hardik Pandya scored a brilliant hundred in a Group C encounter of the 16th DY Patil T20 Cup. He was representing Reliance 1 against CAG at the Reliance Corporate Park in Mumbai in Tuesday.

Hardik hit eight fours and 10 maximums and helped his team score 252/5 in 20 overs. The innings did not just make him happy, it also sent a strong message to the selectors ahead of the series against the Proteas. Pandya said, “It's fantastic (platform) for someone like me. I have been away for almost six months. This is my second game after a long time. For me it is a good platform to see where I am currently and test my body. I am really happy with the way things have gone.”

Pandya set for comeback

Through the Facebook page of DY Patil Sports Academy Facebook page he also added, “If it's there in my arc I just back myself and go for it. Most of the times, it comes out pretty well. There is no plan that I am going to go out there and smash it.”

This was not the first time that the fit-again 26-year-old showed his skills in the tournament. He had scored a 25-ball 38 as well in the first match which helped his team post 150/8 in 20 overs.

Pandya underwent a surgery for a lower-back injury five months ago and has since been out of action for the sake of recovery. He went to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru after returning from a check-up in UK and had to give a miss to the New Zealand tour. He was last seen playing a T20I for India against the Proteas in September 2019.
