Hardik Pandya, who is doing his best to become the all-rounder India has yearned for a while now, played yet another match-winning knock as India sealed the five-match ODI series with a five-wicket win against Australia at the Holkar Stadium in Indore.
Hardik’s performance in the third ODI has received recognition from Kumar Sangakkara. In his message on Twitter, the former Sri Lanka captain has called the Indian all-rounder a ‘very special player’ and also mentioned that the Indian cricket team looks a complete side for all conditions.
“BCCI seemed to canter to the series win. hardik pandya is a very special player. India looks a complete side for all conditions,” Sangakkara tweeted.

A humble Pandya was quick to reply as he wrote,”Thank you for the kind words sir!”
Thank you for the kind words sir! 😊

Currently, India has won three ODIs, and have already clinched the five-match series. Under Virat Kohli, India is under a 9-match winning spree—a record. Given the way things have going right now in the series, there is every possible chance for the Indian team to notch a 5-0 win. Pandya in the series has scored 181 runs in three matches, to go with five wickets.
