Pakistan, who were bowled out for 83 against India in the Asia Cup T20 last month, made a cautious start against the same opposition in the ICC World T20 2016 match at Eden Gardens. With the ball turning square, Pakistan had made a steady start and moved to 38 for no loss in the eighth over.

Suresh Raina was brought into the attack and Sharjeel decided to break loose. He decides to pull Raina’s long hop but mistimes it. Hardik Pandya stationed at deep mid-wicket sprints and dives forward to pull off a stunner. His commitment can be seen with the effort he puts in as it looked that the ball would fall short. He hit the ground on his chest and got his head banged on the turf. He did suffer minor injury and went out for some treatment but nothing was too serious.

Pandya has been a brilliant addition to India’s fielding brigade. His Mumbai Indians (MI) fielding coach Jonty Rhodes, who is regarded as the greatest fielder in cricket history, expressed his glee on his pupil’s show.
