Hardik Pandya, provided team India with their second breakthrough by dismissing the Pakistan opener, Imam-ul-Haq, for 36 runs. He gave him a cold send-off by waving ‘Bye Bye’ towards Imam-ul-Haq in the ongoing India vs Pakistan clash at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.
Hardik Pandya gave away a whopping 18 runs in his first two overs and was struggling to contain runs. However, in the 13th over, he bowled a well-pitched delivery outside the off-stump, tempting Imam-ul-Haq to drive it, which resulted in a thick outside edge.
Rahul left no room for error behind the stumps, snatching a fantastic low catch with a diving effort to terminate Imam’s stay at the crease. On the other hand, Hardik exuded excitement after the wicket, giving Imam-ul-Haq a playful ‘bye-bye’ send-off, inciting a raucous cheer from the jubilant crowd.
