Hardik Pandya was heavily criticised by the commentators for his casual approach while running. Pandya hit a ball to mid-on and was looking to snatch a quick single was sent back by Virat Kohli. Pandya seemed to be comfortably in but the replay suggested that he did not ground his bat which cost him his wicket.

Sunil Gavaskar criticised Pandya’s effort to be ‘unforgivable.’”Casual. No not just casual, that is unforgivable,” said Gavaskar on air. Sanjay Manjrekar described Pandya’s attitude to be ‘arrogant’.

India were all out for 307 with Kohli being the highest scorer (154). If Hardik Pandya had survived India might have been able to take a decent lead.
