Pandya can be seen taking throwdowns at the nets and smashing a few of them into the stands. The all-rounder looks sharp with the bat as he managed to time most of the balls perfectly.
“Best place to celebrate the festive season? In the nets,” Pandya wrote as caption for his video post.
Notably, Pandya had been bogged down by the long-standing back injury that first surfaced during Asia Cup in 2018. While Pandya played the World Cup he missed most of India’s home season earlier this year.
