Hardik Pandya had a fine day at the office on the second day of the ongoing third Test match at Trent Bridge. Pandya said there is no better way than to make the ball do all the talking. In fact, Pandya was criticised in the recent past for his mundane performance.
However, Pandya was able to answer his critics in style as he took five wickets and gave away 28 runs. Meanwhile, this was Pandya’s first five-wicket haul in the red ball version.
Hardik Pandya was right on the money on the second day. The Indian all-rounder was able to take Joe Root’s wicket on the first ball of his spell.
Furthermore, Pandya got the ball in the right areas which helped in reaping fruits. In fact, Pandya was able to get the ball to move away from the right-handers.
Pandya bowled some fine outswingers to take the outside edge of the English batsmen. Furthermore, Indian slip cordon was able to back the good bowling of Hardik Pandya.
The Indian all-rounder bowled at the corridor of uncertainty which helped him in breathing down the neck of England’s batsmen.
Hardik Pandya took to Twitter to share his post. Pandya said it was a dream day for him. The Indian all-rounder is also focussed on finishing the job in the last three day of the match.
Pandya post read as, “There’s no better feeling than making the ball do all the talking. Dream day yesterday, picking up my first fifer in Test cricket. Now the focus shifts to the last 3 days of the Test match. Let’s do this”.
