No Ball is A Crime: Hardik Pandya

Skipper Hardik Pandya was not pleased with Singh delivering no-balls during his bowling. During the post-match presentation, Pandya said that Arshdeep needs to go back and make sure such basic errors don’t happen.

“In this situation, it’s very difficult. In past as well he’s bowled no-balls. As a captain, I believe you can’t give away freebies. Going for runs is fine but no balls aren’t. Not blaming but he (Arshdeep) needs to go back and make sure these basic errors don’t happen at this level. It’s not about blaming or to be too hard on him but no ball is a crime,” Pandya said.
