Right now, with the IPL going on in full swing, it is easy to lose track of the international cricketing scene. At the same time, the IPL gives a platform to selectors to see the performance and consistency level of a player. With Hardik Pandya back in form, the Indian selectors are happy and are looking to pick him in the top 15 players.

Earlier, due to certain controversies surrounding the cricketer, he was invariably forced to miss a few matches for the country. However, he has been playing in the IPL and his form and consistency has given a ray of hope to the selection committee. The selectors are keeping a close eye on the performance of the players in the ongoing T20 league and the all-rounder's match-winning show on Wednesday brought them immense joy.

"The World Cup is just around the corner and as selectors it is pleasing to the eye when you see someone like Hardik doing so well for Mumbai. It clearly shows that he has moved ahead and is focusing on his game. Whatever happened cannot be undone. But how you learn from those mistakes and rise is what is a true test of your character," said one of the National Selectors to IANS.

Apart from this, the selector also stated that Pandya has been doing a great job with both bat and ball for MI. While he has scores of 32* off 14 balls against RCB, 31 off 19 balls against KXIP and 25* off 8 balls against CSK to show for his batting prowess late into the innings, the all-rounder has also picked four wickets in the season so far. With his performance, he has himself also made it clear that his focus is the upcoming World Cup.

As of now, the selectors are happy with his performance and due to his great consistency of late, he is a determined player who is expected to perform well in the upcoming World Cup.
