It was the start of yet another epic series between two heavyweights of world cricket. Yet again, India and Australia faced off against each other after a gap of nearly six months to resume their never-ending rivalry. The lung opener was held at CSK’s fortress, Chepuak Stadium in Chennai.
After a while, a match was held in Chennai with the presence of MS Dhoni in the Indian lineup. As a result, fans showed up in numbers to witness their icon in action. That said, it was Hardik Pandya’s three consecutive sixes off Adam Zampa which stole the limelight in the First ODI.
Hard-hitting Hardik Pandya’s moment in the sun arrived when he took the world by storm with the three consecutive sixes off Imad Wasim in the final over of the Indian innings against Pakistan during the group stages of the ICC Champions Trophy. He then repeated his feat in the finals of Champions Trophy but this time it was the chance of Shadab Khan to face the music.
In the recently concluded lacklustre India-Sri Lanka Test series, it was the century from Pandya in the Third Test match which lit up the entire series. During his knock, he smacked rookie Malinda Pushkumara for three consecutive sixes yet again.
Cricket fanatics started to notice a trend and his affinity to hit three consecutive sixes. Hardik Pandya momentarily eclipsed the stature of even MSD at his den today as he smacked Adam Zampa for three consecutive sixes. One of them even hit the roof of the stands.
This is now the fourth occasion when Pandya took a spinner to the cleaners in a span of four months. As a result, Twitter went ballistic to see the performance of the new-found Indian sensation. He not only entertained the spectators with his six hitting but also helped the team post a competitive total in front of Australia.
