Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja: Hardik Pandya was the ‘Player of the Match’ in the India-Pak (IND vs PAK) match held on Sunday in the Asia Cup. He took 3 wickets for 25 runs in the first bowling and later scored 33 runs in 17 balls in batting. When the Indian team needed 6 runs from 3 balls to win, then Hardik Pandya had given India victory by hitting a six. On this, when Ravindra Jadeja asked Hardik a question, he gave a funny answer.
Jadeja asked, ‘What was going through your mind in the last over?’ On this Pandya said, ‘Seven runs did not seem much to me. Because he was a left arm spinner. There were five fielders on the boundary but it didn’t make any difference to me. Because even if they were 5 or 10, I would have had to kill them. So it didn’t matter to me. I knew there would be more pressure on the bowler than me.
During this, Jadeja also asked Hardik a question related to the injury he suffered during the Asia Cup last time. In the Asia Cup 2018, Hardik was so injured on this ground that he had to be taken out on a stretcher. To this Hardik said, ‘I was remembering everything. I went out on a stretcher from here, that was the dressing room. It feels like an achievement to me that as things happened and then I am here today, this journey looks very beautiful. I would also give credit to Nitin Patel and Soham Desai here. It is because of them that I was able to make such a good comeback.

Hardik Pandya is also seen here asking questions to Ravindra Jadeja. Pandya asks, ‘Tell me, your batting order was a little different today, the situation was also different. You took your chances against the left handed bowler, what was your mindset during today’s match?’ On this Jadeja says, ‘Promoted me in batting, so I thought I would take a risk against spinners. What we were talking about during our partnership that we would play our shots also helped a lot.
