One way or the other, Hardik Pandya ensures his performances impact the result big time and despite not getting to bat on Sunday night against the Kolkata Knight Riders, the all-rounder was brilliant with the ball registering figures of 2/20, which included the two prized-scalps of Shubman Gill and Chris Lynn, thus winning the Man of the Match award.
It has been a season to remember for the 25-year-old, who is touted as India’s main man for the upcoming World Cup. He has been striking the ball very brutally and cleanly this season, which has been one of the main reasons behind the Mumbai Indians being so successful thus far. Another couple of good performances from him and he could hand the side a record-breaking 4th title.
In recent years, he has done pretty well against the Chennai Super Kings. In this very season, Hardik smashed Dwayne Bravo all over the park to a quick-fire 8-ball 25 and registered figures of 3/20 with the ball, thus winning the player of the match award. He remained unbeaten in each of his last four innings against the Super Kings.
Both these incredible units are chasing an improbable fourth title, with Delhi Capitals fighting for their first triumph and Sunrisers Hyderabad desperate for a second title. Both sides will go all guns blazing in Chennai on Tuesday to reign supreme and there is a very good chance that Hardik Pandya might deliver a telling blow.
