India tour of South Africa, 2018 – 1st Test Day 2
Indian All Rounder Hardik Pandya played brilliantly to keep India in game. From 92-7 to reaching 209 runs and reducing the deficit to 77 runs in the first test match against South Africa. Pandya played attacking cricket and scored 93 runs off just 95 balls. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya’s partnership of 99 runs for 7th wicket managed India to give some breathing space.
Intent makes such a big difference. So proud of Hardik for a really special counter-attacking innings.
Hope the bowlers do something special in the second innings.#SAvIND
