IND vs SA T20 Series: Hardik Pandya, who emerged as a hero after making Gujarat Titans champion in IPL 2022, became a villain on social media due to one of his decisions. During the batting of the Indian team, in the 20th over, he refused to take a run to Dinesh Karthik. He wanted to keep the strike with him. This decision of his went to the cricket fans and that is why he was fiercely reprimanded on social media.

Dinesh Karthik came to the crease after captain Rishabh Pant was dismissed on the first ball of the 20th over. On the second ball of the over, he could not score runs but on the third ball he managed to get a run. Now the strike was with Hardik Pandya. On the fourth ball, Pandya hit a six and on the fifth ball played a shot at deep midwicket. A run could have been taken here but Pandya refused. Dinesh Karthik was surprised by this decision of Pandya. Pandya could score only two runs on the last ball of the over.

After this incident on the cricket field, a lot of reactions started coming on social media. Some were calling Pandya overconfident and some were saying whether Hardik Pandya considers Dinesh Karthik as a tail batsman.

Dinesh Karthik was the striker of the season in IPL 2022. He scored runs at a strike rate of more than 180. That is why he got entry in Team India after about 3 years. Fans wanted to see him bat but he could come to the crease in the 20th over. In this too, when Pandya did not give him a chance to play the last ball, Karthik’s fans got furious.

Batting first, the Indian team scored 211 runs in this match. In reply, the South African team achieved the target by losing just 3 wickets. David Miller (64) and Rasi van der Dussen (75) played brilliant innings for Africa.
