Hardik Pandya was seen praising the one who beat him fiercely, said – this is a diamond
IPL 2023: IPL 2023 like a litmus test for Hardik Pandya, know how?
Pandya said, ‘We know what a great player he is. There was a time that Chennai would score 220 or 230 runs. We were having trouble bowling to him. I was feeling that we would not be able to get him out. Talking about his team’s performance, he said, “The wickets of me and Shubman Gill got us into trouble but Rahul Tewatia once again proved his worth and Rashid showed what he can do.”
It is noteworthy that Ruturaj Gaikwad hit 2 sixes and 2 fours during Hardik Pandya’s innings. Both his sixes came in the 7th over. At that time the ball was going airborne for 6 runs as soon as it hit Ruturaj’s bat. Once it seemed that he would complete the century, but at the last moment he was dismissed for a personal score of 91 runs. Had it not been for his innings, the condition of Chennai Super Kings would have been worse. He was the only batsman who scored a half century.
