An ex-Pakistan star has harsh words for Hardik Pandya, saying that he “didn’t seem to have any plans”

On Friday in Ranchi, the first Twenty20 International (T20I) match of the three-match series between New Zealand and India was lost by Team India.

New Zealand established a 1-0 lead in the series after beating India in the first match of the series by a score of 21 runs to give themselves a 3-0 advantage in the One-Day Internationals (ODIs).

After India’s loss, veteran Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria voiced his displeasure with captain Hardik Pandya, stating that the star all-rounder had difficulty performing his duties from a strategic standpoint.

Kaneria stated that Hardik did not rotate his bowlers in a strategic manner, and added that Hardik did not have any intentions for the match.

“Hardik Pandya did not use his rotation of bowlers in a strategic manner. He didn’t bring Shivam Mavi into the attack until it was well underway. He ought to have been brought in at an earlier time.

Given the number of turns that were available, he also had the opportunity to make slightly more use of Deepak Hooda. Strategically speaking, here is where Hardik dropped the ball a little bit. It didn’t appear as though he had any intentions, “Kaneria mentioned it on his channel on YouTube.

Hardik’s function as a bowler was also called into question by Kaneria, who stated that the bowler did not perform effectively with the new ball.

“The Indian bowlers allowed a significant number of runs to be scored. With the new ball, Hardik Pandya did not bowl very well. He was unable to reach the target areas, and as a result, he was responsible for the loss of 33 runs in his three overs “he added.

After being given the opportunity to bat first in Ranchi, New Zealand’s opener Devon Conway struck 52 runs off of 35 balls, while Daryly Mitchell hit an unbeaten 59 runs to help the Kiwis achieve a score of 176 for six.

In their reply, India were only able to score 155 runs, with Washington Sundar smacking a determined half-century.

After Suryakumar Yadav (47) and Hardik Pandya (21) had stitched together a partnership of 68 runs, Sundar smashed 50 off of 28 balls despite the fact that three catches were dropped on him.
