Pandya makes comeback like a Boss while Chahar stamps his class in the ongoing DY Patil T20 Tournament’20
Reliance 1 opting to bat first posted 150/8 at the DY Patil Stadium with opener Saurabh tiwary and Hardik Pandya top scoring for the team. Saurabh scored a timely 41 off 33 while Pandya who came at no.4 played his natural game which is known for plonking 4 big sixes en-route his 25 ball 38. The rest of the batters chipped in as Reliance reached a decent total in hands to defend.
Chasing 151 against an almost Indian bowling line up consisting of Bhuvi and Pandya, Bank of Baroda certainly fell all the jitters facing such quality attack as they were cleaned up for 118 runs in 19 overs. Hardik Pandya impressed with the ball too coming up with exceptional bowling figures of 5/26 in 3.4 overs cleaning up the middle and lower middle order. Not to forget the contribution of Rahul Chahar who was equally penetrative with the ball. Rahul was the pick of the lot coming up with envious numbers taking 5/18 in 4 overs alongwith a maiden as Reliance 1 went on to win the game by 25 runs.
Hardik who underwent a successful surgery for his lower back looked like a million backs looking all set to make a comeback into the Indian Squad while spinner Rahul Chahar continues to silently provide signals to the IPL selectors about his fine form and consistency with the ball.
