Harshal Patel, an Indian bowler, is preparing to return to the field following an injury hiatus. In a three-match T20I series against Australia, he will bat with Jasprit Bumrah.
Patel appreciated Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid for their help during his injury recovery.
“Rahul Dravid and captain Rohit Sharma have been very supportive. It does take pressure off you. Because sometimes people take wrong decisions when they are making a return. They try o do a lot of things because they feel that their place is in danger,” he told ESPNCricinfo.
India would be hoping to test their main players against Australia ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022.
“The team management doesn’t forget your past performances. This gives you a comfort level while coming back. However, you will have to perform again and again,” he added.
