India fielding coach R Sridhar has praised comeback-man Hardik Pandya‘s stunning catch off Yuzvendra Chahal‘s bowling to dismiss rival New Zealand captain Kane Williamson.

“The desperation he brought was magnificent to see. He is always a good fielder and dying to get into the thick of things and be a part of this and get back to what he loves doing, that is to play cricket and as best as he can,” he said on the eve of the fourth ODI.

“He (Pandya) made a very difficult catch look easy. It was a piece of magic and he is known for that and he is one of our best fielders. Hardik brings a lot to the team. Not only the balance but other factors as well.
