Meanwhile, Pandya got out on the second ball of the 18th over after scoring 67 runs off 49 balls, including 4 fours and 2 sixes.
Kiwi pacer Southee bowled a slower ball on a length, angling in and Hardik played a pull shot but didn’t have a great connection with the ball and the ball went up in the air. Kolkata Knight Riders player Rinku Singh, who was at deep mid-wicket, was able to take a forward diving catch to dismiss the Gujarat Titans skipper.
