While he was dismissed for a golden duck in the series opener, the Mumbai cricketer did get off to a solid start in the second match, but was dismissed for 15 runs from five balls and India would want him to regain his lost touch at the earliest.
The Kerala cricketer scored 77 runs off 42 balls at an outstanding strike rate of 183.3 and was also involved in a 176-run stand for the second wicket along with Deepak Hooda.
Hooda finished with 151 runs in two matches and has knocked at the door of the Indian selectors as they start to pick the squads for the multi-nation tournaments later this year.
Pandya might have become the first India captain to pick up a wicket in T20Is, but he was really expensive as far as bowling in Powerplays is concerned. While he gave away 26 runs from two overs in the first game at an economy of 13, he was clobbered for 18 runs in the second match from the two overs that he bowled at an economy of nine
Bishnoi finished with figures of 1/41 from his four overs at an economy of 10.3. He’s only expected to get better with experience and the selectors have all the reasons to keep the youngster in the radar.
