As we all know Hardik Pandya played a match-winning innings in yesterday’s match. When asked whether he would like to be called as the Rockstar of the team, he politely declined and said “I would rather prefer to be called as a ‘Dad’, Jadeja can keep the name of Rockstar”.
Hardik Pandya also praised the newcomer T. Natarajan and referred to his journey as an ‘inspirational one’. As you might know, India won the third and final match of the ODI series since the Australians failed to chase a target of 303.
Hardik Pandya played a big role in this win since he scored a whopping 92 runs. He achieved this milestone while hitting 7 fours and 1 six. The most amazing thing of all is that he achieved this feat by playing just 76 bowls!
While Hardik played a huge role in making team India’s batting a success, Shardul Thakur made sure that India’s bowling turned out to be a success. Thakur took 3 wickets and was the most successful bowler of all.
Both teams will again be facing each other on the same ground in the upcoming T20 match in Canberra. It would be an interesting contest since both teams are amongst the world’s best when it comes to cricket.
T. Natarajan also played a vital role in team India’s win as he took 2 wickets in his debut ODI international match. Virat Kohli again proved his mettle as he scored 63 runs against Australia. The change in bowling combination worked for India.
Overall, the Indian Cricket Team would be happy with their performance as both the batsmen and bowlers did their jobs very well. We wish them luck for the upcoming T20 matches. India vs Australia 1st T20 will take place on the 4th of December in Canberra.
