It is always a big responsibility for the batsmen to observe the pressure in any ICC tournament final especially from India and the best of the players apply themselves out in the crease. The onus of the whole nation will be on the player and he will have to deliver in the best possible way for the country in a crunch match.
It is a big opportunity for the player to get their name in the book by performing in the biggest stages of the international matches and it adds a lot of value and respect to those players. With a note on that, here are the highest individual scores for India in the ICC tournament finals.
Highest Individual Scores For India In ICC Tournament Finals:
Hardik Pandya – 76
The Indian medium pace all-rounder Hardik Pandya lit up the Indian crowd through his aggressive knock in the finals against Pakistan in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. Having come up through the ranks in IPL, Hardik Pandya was yet to prove his credentials with the bat and this was the perfect opportunity for him.
Chasing a mammoth score of 339, India lost a cluster of wickets very early and were reeling at 72 for the loss of six wickets all the big guns are gone. Hardik came to the crease and played one of the best knocks by a batsman in a final by scoring a blistering 76 run knock-off just 43 balls with four fours and four sixes. He was unfortunate to be dismissed by a run-out from a poor call by Jadeja after giving a lot of hope to the Indian fans and India lost the game by 180 runs.
