Pune (Maharashtra) [India], 28 March: After playing an innings of 64 runs against England in the third ODI here at the Maharashtra Cricket Association here on Sunday, all-rounder Hardik Pandya said he would bowl to field the hosts to give him the extra cushion. India’s batting unit made a change in the third ODI and ensured that despite losing wickets at regular intervals, the hosts posted a total of 329 in the stipulated fifty overs. For India, Rishabh Pant (78), Hardik Pandya (64), and Shikhar Dhawan (67) recorded more than fifty scores and set a target of 330 for the visitors. India vs England score 3 ODI 2021 update.
“We don’t have many options. At one point, we thought about 360 but me and Rishabh got out at the wrong time, otherwise, it would have been a different story. I don’t think it was very different, just ordinary cricket. “We supported ourselves and we have done it many times,” Hardik told host broadcaster Star Sports at the midway mark. Hardik Pandya caught Ben Stokes after bowling Shikhar Dhawan.
He said, “We didn’t get what we had hoped for the team, we might have added something else. We batted for a long time, but we have to be okay with what we got. We got the proper balls. There is a need and a difficult task for them. They said, “I have to be smart, I think we have a chance if we bowl in the right areas.”
Asked if he would bowl in the third ODI, Hardik said: “Absolutely yes.” In the second ODI, which India lost by six wickets, there were calls to use Pandya as a bowler but he was not called to bowl. Hardik impressed everyone with his bowling in the T20I series and he came up with a match-winning spell in the fourth T20I against England at the Narendra Modi Stadium. (ANI)
