2017 ICC Champions Trophy: Watch: Hardik Pandya Furious With Ravindra Jadeja After Mix-Up Leads To His Run-out
India’s slim chance of staging an unlikely comeback against Pakistan all but ended with Hardik Pandya’s disastrous run-out. Chasing an improbable 338, India were looking well out of the contest after Mohammad Amir’s fiery spell had reduced the defending champions to 54 for five with all the top-five batsmen back in the hut.
However, Pandya waged a lone battle and kept the match exciting with a whirlwind knock. The all-rounder played the big shots at will but his promising knock came to the worst-possible end when a mix-up with Ravindra Jadeja resulted in his run-out.
The right-handed played a belligerent inning of 76 off just 43 balls with the help of four fours and six huge sixes. And just when it looked he will take India close to the huge score, he paid a hefty price for Jadeja’s mistake.
The left-handed batsman played one softly towards the covers and Pandya immediately set off for a non-existent single. However, Jadeja, looking totally confused, did not oblige to his partner’s call and after taking a few steps returned to his crease. Pandya, meanwhile, did not return to his crease and was stranded with Jadeja at the same end before the fielder threw the ball to Hasan Ali to complete a simple run-out. With Pandya looking in supreme form, Jadeja should have sacrificed but the all-rounder did otherwise and cost India their last hope.
As expected, Pandya was furious and did not hesitate in expressing his frustration.
Here is a clip of that run-out:
