INDvSL | ‘Well done Kung Fu Pandya’: Virender Sehwag leads Twitter applause for Hardik’s breathtaking ton
All-rounder Hardik Pandya smashed his maiden test hundred off just 86 deliveries as India closed on a 500-run first innings total in the third and final match against Sri Lanka on Sunday.
The 23-year-old, who also bowls medium pace, was unbeaten on 108 as whitewash-chasing India went to lunch on 487 for nine after an extended morning session on the second day. Fast bowler Umesh Yadav was on three at the other end.
The century was also a maiden first-class ton for the right-hander, who has hit eight boundaries and seven sixes in his knock so far.
Here are some Twitter reactions to Hardik’s knock:
