"I mean you can't score every day but yes, backing yourself is pretty important", Pandya said.
After clinching the series, Pandya, in his typical swagger, stated that reading the situation was important. Just when Warner was looking to upped the ante further with a six and a four, he was castled by Hardik Pandya (1-58) in the 14th over, ending 70 run opening stand. Finch, who was going at a slow rate struck three boundaries and a six to complete his 17th half-century. Incidentally, even John Wright, the former India coach and a talent scout for Mumbai Indians, was also in attendance for the match and it didn't come as a surprise that Pandya was signed up for his base price of Rs. 10 lakh in the auction a few weeks later. In the previous ODI at Indore, Pandya was sent up at No. 4 and he notched up 78 maintaining the tempo set by openers. "That time (in Chennai) I thought that Zampa was bowling and I knew that I could hit a six off him any time I wanted to", he said, as a matter of fact. Tomorrow, he may bat at 80 for 4, like he did in the first ODI with Dhoni.
With his consistent performances, Pandya is expected to carry the weight of expectations like other star players of the team. "Obviously the plan was to target the spinners and it came out pretty well".
Indore: He has become the cynosure of all eyes with his six-hitting prowess but Hardik Pandya has said that it's not a skill he has developed overnight as he has been clearing the ropes easily since childhood. Rather than seeing this as a challenge, I see this as an opportunity to do something nice for the team.

'Kingsman: The Golden Circle' Review: The Same Outrageous Style
Now I am generally a quiet moviegoer and whenever someone belts out laughing or gasps in the seat next to me I glare angrily. Perhaps his agent will look into booking him some more action comedies because his performance left me wanting to see more.
After Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane gave the hosts a steady start, in-form all-rounder Hardik Pandya regaled the packed stands at the Holkar Stadium with some power-packed batting lower down the order.
"It does not make any difference where I bat", Pandya asserted. This is the first time I got the chance to play so many balls, so that was great. But I waited till the 37th over and then used the opportunity to change the momentum. We have been wanting a guy like that for the past five, six years.
India's current victory run started on July 6 this year with an eight-wicket win over West Indies in the fifth and last match of that series at Sabina Park. He felt we needed to attack the spinner. This concept of "play your natural game", which I hear all the time, frustrates me because there's no such thing in my belief as "natural game".
Pandya's all-round feats have given rise to comparisons with Kapil Dev.
