Hardik Pandya receives backlash after weird comment during 3rd ODI

Hardik Pandya

Stand-in skipper for India in the series, Hardik Pandya said something very weird during yesterday’s 3rd ODI.

Apparently, the series between West Indies and India was tied at 1-1 with the hosts winning the 2nd one with ease.

Meanwhile, at the toss, West Indies won it yet again and decided to field first.

Furthermore, Hardik Pandya was told by one of the commentators that India has never lost a bilateral ODI series against West Indies in almost 10 years.

But, somehow, Pandya was unnerved by this statement and said in a rather joking manner,

It’s okay to be unique.

However, this comment soon went viral on social media with fans a bit angry and even trolled Pandya.

It was in the year 2006 in an away series against the Windies that India lost a bilateral series 4-1.

Ever since India hasn’t looked back and has gone on to defeat West Indies for 12 consecutive years.

But, India was almost on the verge of losing that streak as they locked horns with the West Indies.

Meanwhile, in the 2nd ODI, West Indies dismissed India for 181 runs.

Unadkat makes comeback in the ODI squad; Kohli-Rohit sit out yet again

Additionally, Jaydev Unadkat finally made a breakthrough in his international career once again.

India made two changes by bringing in Ruturaj Gaikwad and Unadkat in the place of Axar Patel and Umran Malik.

Meanwhile, West Indies decided to keep the same playing XI for the last game as well.

On the other hand, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma decided to keep themselves out of the team yet again.

This was a 9-year wait for Unadkat as his last game for India was way back in November 2013 against the same opposition in Kochi.

Furthermore, he has an average of 26.12 and best figures of 4/41 in ODI cricket for India.

Also, Twitter was abuzz with tweets from fans after Hardik Pandya’s bizarre statement.
