Pandya blew away the CSK team in Wankhede with an amazing performance with both ball and bat.
Pandya scored a quickfire 25* off just 8 balls with 3 sixes and then picked up 3 wickets including that of CSK skipper MS Dhoni to put the game out of the defending championsâ€™ reach, halting them to 133/8 in 20 overs.
He was awarded as the man-of-the-match for his sensational performance. With this, when almost everyone seems to be appreciating him for his performance, Ishant Sharma, who too is having a great IPL took a dig at Pandya and posted an image on Twitter and captioned, Hi @hardikpandya7!! Do we remember clicking this picture? PC - @PratimaSinghBB
To this, Hardik Pandya responded and said, "Absolutely buddy. Calm before storm."
