Twittearti Are Showering ‘Hilarious’ Praises On Hardik Pandya


Hardik Pandya impressed one and all with his outstanding display of aggressive batting in the first innings of the ongoing Test match between South Africa and India. On a tough batting wicket, India’s top order got out very cheaply against the quality fast bowling attack of Dale Steyn, Vernon Philander, Kagiso Rabada and Morne Morkel.


The likes of Virat Kohli, Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma got out cheaply and put India under a lot of pressure. But, Hardik Pandya came out and stunned Proteas with a brilliant counter-attacking innings of 93.

South African fast bowler tested Pandya with lots of short deliveries but he didn’t lose his cool and formed a crucial ‘innings-saving’ partnership with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who also batted brilliantly and gave good support to Pandya, lower down the order.


Pandya was unlucky to not get his hundred but Indian cricket team and fans would be very thankful to him for his effort. Had he not scored those runs, India would have been dismissed below 150 and it would have been a disastrous start to the series.
