Team India all rounder Hardik Pandya sustained a groin injury during the ICC World Cup semifinal against New Zealand on Tuesday, 9 July.

Pandya was seen limping off the field after he bowled five overs, conceding 21 runs without any success. He however came back and was soon brought back into the bowling attack by Kohli.
