India and Baroda all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who is famous for his flamboyant style marked his return to form in a grand way in the competitive cricket with another blistering century in the ongoing DY Patil T20 Cup, where he is representing his team the Reliance 1.
Hardik Pandya underwent surgery after suffering a lower-back injury five months ago and was since under the recovery process. He was again seen in a disastrous form during the final match for Reliance 1, as he smashed a brilliant 158* in just 55 balls, which was his second century in the tournament. He remained unbeaten on 158 off just 55 balls.
His match-winning knock came after just four days after he had smashed a brilliant 105 runs in just 39 balls. His first ton had 14 sixes and 2 fours in the innings, against CAG.
His 158 runs are the highest T20 score by an individual. Earlier, the record for the highest individual score by an Indian in T20 was held by Shreyas Iyer with 147, playing for Mumbai against Sikkim in their Group C match of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
During his record-breaking knock, Pandya smashed the opposition for 20 humongous sixes and six fours and kept the crowd on the edge of their seats. It was a complete eye-treat for the fans to watch the Indian all-rounder back to his form and smash 20 sixes. His stunning knock helped Reliance 1 post a mammoth total of 238 in 20 overs and win the match.
The fans are going crazy over Hardik Pandya’s 20 humongous sixes that he smashed during his knock. The video of the same was shared by Mumbai Indians via their official social media accounts and has been going viral ever since.
