India vs Pakistan: Hardik Pandya’s unforgettable heroics in last night’s India vs Pakistan Asia Cup 2022 match has become the most discussed topic in the sporting world. Pandya starred both with the bat and ball as after Rohit Sharma decided to ball first, he picked three wickets for 25 runs in his four overs and later played an unbeaten 17-ball 33 run innings, which included the match-winning six. Team India was 4 wickets down for 89 when Hardik came out to bat at number 6. His confident knock in a high-pressure game helped India beat Pakistan by five wickets on Sunday.

The star all-rounder was awarded the Player of the Match award for his innings against Pakistan. Meanwhile, Virat Kohli posted an Instagram story to lavish praise on Hardik. The former India skipper captioned his Insta post ‘Champion.’
India vs Pakistan Asia Cup 2022 match was a historic event for Virat Kohli as he created history by becoming only the second player in the world and the first in India to play 100 international matches in all three formats. Virat Kohli made a comeback after almost a month’s break and was seen in good rhythm. In this match, Kohli played a hard-fought inning of 35 runs in 34 balls with the help of three fours and one six.
In another big achievement, as soon as Virat hit the first boundary of his innings, he completed 300 fours in T20 International cricket. Kohli has become the fourth player in the world to attain this record. Before him, Ireland’s Paul Stirling, New Zealand’s Martin Guptill and India skipper Rohit Sharma have also achieved this feat.
