India vs Pakistan: Hardik Pandya showed the world that he is ready to deliver the all-rounder’s role to perfection as he rattled Pakistan in a high-pressure Asia Cup 2022 match in Dubai on Sunday, August 28. Hardik was on fire, leading the way for India with the ball as Pakistan were in tatters after they were sent in.
The all-rounder has been on top form since his impressive return in the Indian Premier League.
“Doesn’t seem to be our day. Nobody is able to connect at all,” Akhtar said in a tweet.

Bhuvneshwar finished with figures of 4/25 while Hardik picked up 3/26 as Pakistan needed a cameo from Shahnawaz Dahani to get to a total that would give something to the Pakistan pacers.
