IPL 2019: Looks like Hardik Pandya trolled Vijay Shankar in the most bizarre manner ever. During the clash between Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad, Pandya, who was in the dugout appeared to be having a chocolate bar. While Shankar, who is fielding near the dugout crosses him. While Shankar crosses Hardik, the Mumbai all-rounder offers him the chocolate, only to back out last-minute. The act is hilarious. It was the 12th over when the episode took place. Hardik has been in devastating form with the bat in the ongoing season of the IPL.
Here is the hilarious video:
Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians prevailed over Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Super Over to qualify for the IPL playoffs at Wankhede Stadium on Thursday, the win propelled them to the second position in the pecking order. Opting to bat, Mumbai Indians scored 162 for five in the allotted 20 overs, and then, saw SRH end their innings at the same score. Needing nine to win in the Super Over, Hardik Pandya hammered Rashid Khan for a six over long off in the first ball and then Kieron Pollard took the side home with three balls to spare. In the one-over eliminator, Sunrisers Hyderabad managed 8/2 with Jasprit Bumrah bagging the wickets of Manish Pandey and Mohammed Nabi. (SCORECARD).
“It’s a good positive for us to qualify with one game to spare. In 2017, when we won the trophy, we qualified with two games in hand. As a team what we have done well is that we have handled the pressure situations well,” said Rohit.
