The star all-rounder Hardik Pandya deals with a strong argument with the on-field umpire, as Mitchell Marsh comes in mid of his run-up. Hardik Pandya was greatly annoyed at the halt of the match.
The incident happened in the 7th over of the innings in the 1st ODI match between India vs Australia, as Hardik Pandya pulls out his run-up for the 2nd time. He becomes devastated and disappointed by the event.
The Indian side had strong words of exchange with the on-field umpire Nitin Menon and asks the empire to solve the issue. However, the umpire quickly resolved the issue in no time and the match continued.
The Indian side faced the issue twice, as earlier Mohammed Siraj leaves his run-up midway when Steven Smith disrupts the field. The pitch at Wankhede Stadium favored the bowler throughout the match, as fast bowlers showed their excellent skills to restrict the opposition side at a low score.
The Indian side has bundled out the Australians on just 188 runs merely. Mohammed Siraj and Mohammed Shami shine with their heroic performance displayed as they picked up 3 wickets each.
Here is how Hardik Pandya reacted:
March 17, 2023
Ravindra Jadeja picked up 2 wickets, and Hardik Pandya along with Kuldeep Yadav picked up 1 wicket each to restrict the side to a lower score.
From the Australian side, nothing went right as they struggled in the batting as only Mitchell Marsh was able to score a terrific inning by scoring 81 runs from 65 balls.
The batting line-up of Australia typically fell like the slack of cards one after another, they were not able to gain momentum and capitalize on the good start they had.
The Indian team will be coming to chase the target shortly, and most probably seal the first ODI match as they have displayed a top-notch performance against the visitors.
