Hardik Pandya congratulated his brother, Krunal after he came up with a match winning performance in the second T20 international against New Zealand.
Krunal took three wickets which helped India restrict New Zealand to 158 in 20 overs. He dismissed Colin Munro and Daryl Mitchell in his first over while returned to pick up the wicket of New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson.
Chasing 159 to win, Men in Blue gunned down the score comfortably after a magnificent fifty from captain Rohit Sharma and an aggressive 40 from Rishabh Pant. Hardik took to Instagram to post a picture of himself with Krunal and wrote: “Proud of you big bro”.
Krunal was ecstatic with his Man of the Match performance, which was his second in this format of the game.
“It felt really nice to contribute for the team. It’s always special when you contribute to a win. The dimensions are quite different from Wellington, the straight boundaries were short and I had to adjust my length to it. Looking forward to the decider in two days’ time.”
