    Hardik Pandya HATTRICK of Sixes: All-rounder Hardik Pandya finished the Indian innings in style as the 28-year-old hit three sixes in a row off Cameron Green’s last three deliveries, to finish the Indian innings. With the help of Pandya’s blistering unbeaten knock of 71 runs in merely 30 deliveries, India posted a huge total of 208 runs for the loss of six wickets. Pandya smashed seven fours and five sixes during his time on the crease. His strike rate was over 236 to lift the Indian innings with assistance from Suryakumar Yadav in the middle.

    India, earlier in Mohali, lost the toss and had to bat first. The side lost Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli within the powerplay overs. But KL Rahul, the vice-captain, scored a quick half-century but fell off Josh Hazlewood’s delivery after notching 55 runs in 35 deliveries with four boundaries and three sixes in his account.

    Yadav, furthermore, quick fired 46 runs in 25 deliveries with a couple of fours and four sixes. Pandya then, came in to bat at number five and scored this, an undeniably one of the quickest knocks of his cricketing career.

    In the last over of the Indian innings, Aussie all-rounder Green came in, to bowl and conceded just three runs off the first three deliveries. But, on the next three deliveries, Pandya didn’t hold it back and hit three consecutive sixes. The first one, on the fourth delivery of the over, Pandya hit the ball over deep midwicket. Moreover, on the fifth delivery, he hit it over the long off, and finally, the third one, Pandya went on to hit the ball over the deep third man.

    Besides, Australia’s Nathan Ellis picked up three wickets for his side, while Josh Hazlewood picked two.
