Hardik Pandya got a perfect opportunity to wipe off his bad boy image and the third ODI between India and New Zealand came in like a blessing.
Hardik took a stunning catch to dismiss New Zealand captain Kane Williamson who was looking good in the crease. This happened in the 17th over of the match, when Yuzvendra Chahal was bowling from the pavilion end and Williamson was trying to work the ball towards long off. As the ball got chipped in the air, Hardik who was fielding at the midwicket position, jumped towards his left to catch the ball and he did it.
That was a phenomenal catch lauded the commentators while the Indian team was ecstatic with Hardik's fielding efforts. New Zealand were bowled out for 243 runs and India needs to 244 runs to clinch the series.
