Hardik Pandya continues to take on the Englishmen as he took his second wicket of the day in his third over.
Pandya initially sent back Jason Roy. Skipper Rohit Sharma and the blues were aware of Jason Roy being a pressure player for the visitors as he was close to scoring a classic half century before team India decided to go with Hardik Pandya.
Hardik Pandya in the second ODI dismissed Jason Roy and the fact of these two clashing with an advantage to India, skipper Rohit did not hesitate to show a change in bowling.
When the first over concluded at a “maiden over wicket”, Hardik smashed another blow to the hosts by taking on Ben Stokes who looked well in form today but Pandya witnessed the Test skipper stepping out and Hardik intentionally bowled a bouncer which made Stokes uncomfortable and ultimately Hardik took a catch.
England are 74-4 in 13.2 overs whereas Hardik’s identical figures of 2.2 over conceding 2 runs for 2 wickets have initiated some glimpses over the Twitter
