Hardik Pandya was widely chastised on social media after his last-ball six denied Tilak Varma a half-century in the third T20I against the West Indies.
Hardik Pandya, India’s captain for the T20I series against the West Indies, has been under fire in recent days for the team’s dismal performance in the first two games of the series. However, Hardik found himself in the crosshairs for a different reason following India’s overwhelming victory in the third T20I. With the Indian side chasing a target of 160 runs, Hardik smashed a six on the final ball of the match to complete the chase, despite the fact that non-striker Tilak Varma needed only one run to complete his half-century.
Hardik Pandya blasted a maximum off the bowling of Rovman Powell on the fifth ball of the 18th over, propelling India across the finish line. However, Varma stayed not-out on 49.
