Team India’s star all-rounder Hardik Pandya scored 71 runs in 30 balls in the match played against Australia in Mohali. On the strength of Hardik’s innings, Team India scored 208 runs for six wickets in 20 overs against Australia. In reply, Australia won the match by scoring 211 runs for the loss of six wickets in 19.2 overs. After this match, when Hardik Pandya reached the press conference, his patience was answered in front of a question. The reporter asked what was the turning point of the match and also said whether Harshal Patel’s 18th over was the biggest loss for Team India.

Hardik Pandya said-

“Tell me, I don’t know, if I had known, I wouldn’t have stopped it, right. Look sir, can’t pinpoint 24-25 runs in an over even on his time, it doesn’t matter. It’s a bilateral series, and There are two matches in which we will try to do something good.” Apart from Axar Patel, no other bowler could impress from India and that is the reason why India had to face defeat in this match.
