5 All-Rounders Who Can Replace Hardik Pandya If He Is Ruled Out Of World Cup 2023 Due To Injury

India's Hardik Pandya suffered an ankle injury during a World Cup match against Bangladesh, forcing him to leave the field after bowling only three deliveries.

Axar Patel is a potential replacement for Hardik Pandya, having displayed good form in recent years and having 54 ODIs under his belt with 59 wickets and 481 runs. 

India has limited options for fast-bowling all-rounders, and Vijay Shankar, who was part of the 2019 World Cup squad, may not be a likely replacement due to his recent absence from the team.

India already has spin options in Ashwin, Kuldeep, and Jadeja, but if they seek a fast-bowling all-rounder, Deepak Chahar is an option with 16 wickets in 13 ODIs.

Washington Sundar, who has contributed with both bat and ball, can be considered as an alternative if a reliable all-rounder is needed.

For a batting all-rounder, Shivam Dube, who showed promise in the IPL 2023, could be a suitable choice.
