With the Men in Blue in big trouble, Dinesh Karthik and Hardik Pandya once again showed their class in the fourth T20I against South Africa.
Former India player Mohammad Kaif was mighty impressed with the finishing skills of Dinesh and Hardik.
Kaif said the two attacking batters will surely travel to Australia for the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia.
“With Rohit, KL, Virat set to return, top order gets sorted. India were looking for finisher. Ek maango, do mil gaye. Hardik and DK aap Australia World Cup ja rahe hain,” he wrote.
DK was on fire from the start of his knock as he hit regular fours and sixes. He smashed 7 fours and 2 sixes in his score of 55, while Hardik’s 46 runs were laced with 3 sixes and as many fours. The duo took India’s score to 169.
The bowlers defended the score smartly with Avesh Khan taking 4 wickets while conceding just 18 runs. Even Yuzvendra Chahal was impactful as he dismissed two batters. India won the game by 82 runs to level the series 2-2 with one more game to go.
