Watch – Hardik Pandya’s golden reaction after dismissing Haider Ali
India is taking on Pakistan in their first game of T20 World Cup 2022.
After winning the toss, India opted to bowl first. Pakistan did not have a good start as they lost their captain Babar Azam in the second over of Arshdeep Singh. After Babar’s wicket, Rizwan also gifted his wicket to Arshdeep.
However, a good partnership between Masood and Iftikhar Ahmed put Pakistan in a good situation. But Shami picked Iftikhar’s wicket and broke the partnership. In the 14th over, Hardik sent two Pakistani batters Shadab Khan & Haider Ali to pavilion.
Hardik after dismissing Haider Ali on the last ball of the over, stared at him with a smile for few moments. Shan Masood who were on the crease since the 2nd over smashed half century in 42 balls and helped Pakistan setting 159/8 score in 20 overs.
