Moments after Imran Tahir hampered the Mumbai Indians batting line-up in the game number 2 of the Indian Premier League season 10, it was Hardik Pandya who changed the entire plot of the match at the end of the first innings.
Skipper Steven Smith deployed Ashoke Dinda to deliver the last over and MI all-rounder Hardik Pandya was on the strike. As soon the over commenced, the heat on the ground started increasing with the knocks of Pandya. 6, 6, 6 and 4; these were the stats of the last over. Hardik Pandya’s beast mode got turned on while Dinda couldn’t do anything except watching the ball going out of the fence at almost every delivery.
Luckily, Tim Southee was dismissed but that didn’t make any difference. The entire match suddenly went into Mumbai’s side after Pandya hit those massive sixes and left the entire crowd stunned in Pune. And, as usual, the Twitteratis rocked once again with their witty posts and trolled Ashoke Dinda like anything!

Pune lost it when Dinda gave only 8 runs in his 3rd over. Chutiye ko last over dena pad gaya. Poor Smith Pandya you beauty #RPSvMI

Hardik Pandya is playing so good than even Southee ran to striker’s end just to kiss him. Legend.

This is what happens when you pick dinda instead of irfan pathan at auctions and smith as captain over dhoni #RPSvMI
