2. Hardik Pandya
Hardik Pandya scored 51 off 33 balls with the help of six boundaries and a six to notch up his first fifty in T20Is in Southampton. Pandya also registered his best bowling figures in the format (4/33) after dismissing the likes of Dawid Malan, Liam Livingstone, Jason Roy and Sam Curran.
The 28-year-old is enjoying his great form since leading Gujarat Titans to their maiden title in IPL 2022 in the franchise’s very first season in the lucrative tournament. Pandya is a big certainty for India to play in the T20 World Cup in Australia and therefore the team management will play him every game before the marquee event.
