Krunal Pandya must have realised that bowling in international game that too on unfriendly wickets of Australia is a completely different ball game.
Krunal Pandya, elder brother of Hardik Pandya, had made an impressive T20I debut against Windies earlier this month. And just a couple of games after his debut, he was taken to cleaners by Glenn Maxwell in the first T20I. The Australia star hit him for three consecutive sixes.

Krunal’s first over in Australia was not an impressive one as he was hit for a big six by Chris Lynn. He did decently in his second over, conceding seven as his figures read 15 for no wickets after two overs. But all hell broke loose when he came out to bowl his third over. He conceded three consecutive sixes in his third over.
Here is a clip showing Glenn Maxwell taking Krunal Pandya to the cleaners:
Krunal eventually ended his quota by conceding 55 runs without picking up a single wicket. In his last over, he conceded as many as 17 runs including two more sixes.
Coming to the game, Australia ended their innings on 158 for 4. The hosts were off to a shaky start, losing D’Arcy Short cheaply. However, the other batsmen made useful contribution to guide their side to a challenging total. Glenn Maxwell top-scored for Australia, blasting 46 with the help of four sixes.
