During the 2nd T20I between India and England on Saturday, the Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya could be heard cursing at a fielder for not looking at him. The all-rounder made an explosive start to the series with a ‘player of the match’ performance in the opening game. He accounted for career-best four wickets alongside a half-century to win the first T20I for India.
However, the second game didn’t prove too fruitful for Pandya as he could only score 12 runs off 15 deliveries before getting out. However, he managed to scalp the wicket of Moeen Ali in his three-over spell.
Hardik Pandya uses expletives to a fielder
After coming to bowl, the all-rounder went for eight runs in his first over. However, the all-rounder wasn’t pleased about something and let his emotions known to the fielder aggressively.
Hardik Pandya was caught on the stump mic using expletives to a fielder and heard cussing his teammate in Hindi. The Baroda cricketer was heard shouting “Mere time mere pe dekh, maa ch***ne gaya wo kya bol raha hai.” In English, that roughly translates to “Look at me when I am bowling, don’t care what he speaks.” Meanwhile, which player received the stick from Pandya is not known.
