6. INDIA vs. SRILANKA, India’s tour of Sri Lanka 2017:
It was a moment to be cherished forever for Hardik Pandya as all rounder made his test debut on 26/7/2017 against Srilanka as it’s a dream for every cricketer to play the toughest format i.e., test format of the game and thrive to excel in it. He made a fabulous 50 run knock off 48 balls on debut and became the second fastest Indian to score a half century on debut standing behind Yuvraj Singh in the list. He became the first Indian Batman to hit more than two sixes in an inning on test debut.
There are many more cherishable moments in Hardik’s closet. Let us hope that he keeps us entertaining with his amazing skills and also make India proud on many other bigger stages of the sport!
