Every time India and Pakistan play each other, the match must be intense and entertaining. And cricket fans around the world experienced all the thrills and shivers during the second game of the 2022 Asia Cup. Indian players were in great form as they faced Pakistan, whether it was in the bowling or batting departments.

Hardik Pandya’s composed performance with both the bat and the ball helped India win the match by five wickets. Pandya went on to score the winning runs for India after taking three wickets in the first innings. He did so when under duress and just as the game appeared to be out of India’s control.

As the team’s two all-rounders, Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja, established a 52-run stand for the fifth wicket before the game came down to the last over, they anchored India’s innings practically to the very end. Mohammad Nawaz struck on the first ball of the last over to eliminate Jadeja, which put wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik on strike with seven runs needed off the final six balls.

Hardik Pandya, who was in excellent form the entire game and was responsible for the majority of the scoring, received the strike after Karthik took a single off the second ball of the over. On the third delivery, Pandya was unable to hit the ball, and when Karthik tried to get a single, Pandya stared at him and made a chilly gesture to tell Karthik to return and stay at his place.

The cricketing world was buzzing about Hardik Pandya’s confidence.

When India needed six runs off the final three deliveries, Hardik Pandya’s look caught everyone’s attention. The all-rounder shown incredible courage and confidence in the pressure-filled situation. Pandya’s response suggested that he was about to do something significant when he decided to continue the attack. The fourth delivery from Nawaz was bowled, and Pandya hit a huge six to put an end to it and give India a commanding victory.

Like every Indian cricket fan, the Men in Blue were still smarting from their defeat at the T20 World Cup and plotting the ideal act of vengeance. Pandya, who scored an unbeaten 17-ball 33* to complete Team India’s victorious response to Pakistan, was undoubtedly the match’s hero for playing a refined, fashionable game and for granting the wish of every Indian cricket fan.
