Perhaps, the India tour of England has given the biggest learning curve for all-rounder Hardik Pandya as a professional cricketer. He came across the criticism when he displayed poor cricketing skills and enjoyed the perks when he performed at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham.
However, he ended the tour by receiving the flak from the Indian fans.
Apart from Trent Bridge, Pandya never really looked like doing the job for India. He got a golden chance to save India at Edgbaston and Southampton, but he had other ideas in mind eventually losing a place in the fifth and final Test.
Gutted with the result – Hardik Pandya
The Baroda all-rounder Pandya maintained he was gutted with the result of the gruelling Test series. However, he expressed his happiness for fighting hard despite the scoreline suggesting a different story.
Meanwhile, Pandya also expressed his delight on his return to his motherland.
Further, Pandya showed his excitement for the upcoming tour to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for the Asia Cup 2018. He also attached a picture of him to the tweet which didn’t serve well for the cricketing fanatics.
Hardik Pandya’s tweet read ”Back to India gutted with the result but it was a well fought series and good to be back home for a couple of days before we fly again for Asia cup in few days time

Ahead of the series, a lot has been expected from the India all-rounder who was in submissive form.
Apart from the third Test in Nottingham, he never lived up to the expectations for the team thus being on the wrong side of the things.
Meanwhile, the unimpressed fans gave a severe backlash for the cricketer on his officials Twitter panel. In addition, few fans morphed his images to troll Team India all-rounder Hardik Pandya.
Also, here are the few tweets:

You please take some domestic games then go for any overseas tournaments. We don’t see much improvement on your batting as we like you initially only for batting 😫😫🤷🏼♂️
