Hardik Pandya has further enhanced his reputation as one of the most explosive batsmen in the game with a stunning knock against Australia in the just-concluded second T20I in Sydney. The allrounder played an unbeaten knock of 42 to help India chase down an imposing total of 195.

With the win, the Men in Blue also sealed the three-match series with a game in hand. The visitors chased down the target with six wickets in hand and two balls to spare. Opener Shikhar Dhawan top-scored with 52 while captain Virat Kohli scored 40 to set up the platform for the chase.

Cameos from Hardik Pandya (42 from 22) and Shreyas Iyer (12 from 5) then took India over the line. India were in a spot of bother towards the end of the match when Kohli departed in the 17th over. India were reeling at 149 for 4 at that stage, still needing 46 runs from just 23 balls.

However, Hardik Pandya and Shreyas Iyer shared an unbeaten stand of 46 runs off just 21 balls to take India home. In the final over, India needed 14 runs off Daniel Sams with Hardik Pandya at the striker’s end. He started the over with a double before dispatching the pacer for a six.
