Why did Hardik Pandya give the last over to Akshar Patel, revealed himself after the match

India vs Sri Lanka 1st T20: The first T20 match was played between India and Sri Lanka at Wankhede in Mumbai on Sunday. This match was very exciting and Team India won by two runs. In this match, when 13 runs were needed in the last over, captain Hardik Pandya handed over the ball to Akshar Patel, seeing which everyone was surprised. After the match, Hardik himself revealed why he bowled Akshar Patel in the last over. 

Please tell that when Sri Lanka had to score 13 runs in the last over, Hardik Pandya handed over the ball to Akshar Patel. However, at that time one over was left for himself and two overs for Yuzvendra Chahal. 

Akshar Patel was given the last over under this strategy

Akshar Patel, who scored an unbeaten 31 runs in 20 balls and brought Team India’s fighting score with his batting, saved five runs in the last three balls and gave Team India victory in an almost lost match. Please tell that Sri Lanka had to score 13 runs in the last over to win. 

Hardik Pandya said after the match, "I intentionally wanted to put my team in a difficult position. This will give us advantage in difficult big matches and difficult conditions. We are very good in bilateral series. We will continue to challenge ourselves in the future as well."

Why didn’t he bowl the last over himself?

After winning the last ball, Hardik Pandya said, “Yes now, I am definitely getting used to being called the captain. It’s just cramps. Now I have a tendency to scare people. But if I am smiling then everything is fine. I didn’t sleep well, didn’t drink enough water. So the glutes were tight (a special type of muscle).”

Praises Shivam Mavi, why bowl at the beginning?

Hardik said, “The matter was very simple. I have seen Mavi bowling well in IPL and I know what his strength is. Just trust yourself (Mavi to Hardik) and don’t worry about getting hit (worrying about getting boundaries). If that is the case then yes,  I have worked on my swing bowling and I have worked on my inswinger. I am bowling in the nets and I like bowling with the new ball."
