Before the start of the T20 World Cup, the one Indian player who continued to be in the news cycle was allrounder Hardik Pandya. The right-handed batsman had to undergo back surgery in 2019 after which he has not been a regular bowler, and questions were raised whether he should be included in the World Cup squad if he is unable to bowl.

Pandya did not bowl for Mumbai Indians in the UAE leg of the Indian Premier League in the last two months, and there were concerns about whether his inclusion may affect the balance of the team.
