Hardik Pandya‘s 42*(22) helped India beat Australia in the second T20I of the three-match series in Sydney. 

Carrying on his belligerent form from the IPL to the ODI series and now here in the shortest format for his country, Hardik was finding it difficult to time the ball well initially in his innings as the required rate was creeping up.

However, skipper Virat Kohli’s innings first and then a couple of good strikes from Shreyas Iyer helped him not to try anything stupid.

His clean hitting in the last two overs was enough for Team India to make mockery of the 195 target as India won the game with two balls and six wickets left.

Netizens celebrated the win heaping praise on Pandya, asking if he is the best finisher in this format of the game in the world. The users also applauded the all-round team performance as all the batters chipped in with useful contributions after T Natarajan’s outstanding spell of 2-20 while bowling.

Former cricketers Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar, Michael Vaughan too joined the fans on Twitter to praise Hardik and team India for the win.

Here are some of the reactions:
