In the third one-day international match of the series against New Zealand, India got off to a flying start as both of their openers, Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill, smashed centuries. However, as soon as the duo departed, the momentum of the Indian team was derailed as the wickets continued to fall at regular intervals.
It was the partnership between Shardul Thakur and Hardik Pandya that enabled India to amass such a massive score as 385 runs when they batted together.
Shardul shown that he is just as capable of attacking shots as Hardik, who is famed for his finishing abilities, but Shardul also demonstrated that he is just as capable.
Ravi Shastri offered a cheeky question to Hardik after seeing both of them play some brilliant strokes at the very end of the innings. Hardik gave an even cheekier reaction to Ravi Shastri’s inquiry.
Hardik reacted with a chuckle and the following statement as Shastri questioned who had offered the advise to whom: “I count myself fortunate that Shardul has faith in me and allows me to determine the conditions within the room.
But he always has a point to make, and while I do my best to listen to what he has to say, in the end, because he has faith in me, he does exactly what it is that I desire. Therefore, in the context of our collaboration, it was merged, but I want to thank Shardul for paying attention to what I had to say.”
Shardul has improved significantly as a hitter despite the fact that he is primarily a bowler. Another illustration of the kind of damage he is capable of doing with the bat lower in the batting order came in the third One-Day International that was played against New Zealand.
After the game was over, the captain of the Indian cricket team, Rohit Sharma, also praised Shardul for his performance.
“We maintained our composure, followed through with our objectives, and bowled fairly well. Shardul has been engaging in this activity for some time now.
His teammates refer to him as a magician, and once again, he came through for them. He only has to get more games under his belt, “During the post-match presentation, Rohit made the following statement.
India won the match with a score of 90 runs, giving them a 3-0 victory over New Zealand in the one-day international (ODI) series.
