Hardik Pandya stuns Hashim Amla with his brilliance on Day 1 of the Centurion Test

On Day 1 of the ongoing second Test between South Africa and India in Centurion, India needed a moment of brilliance to get rid of the South African batting star Hashim Amla and the moment was provided by none other than Hardik Pandya.

Amla was looking primed for a well-deserved century until the decision to steal a quick single saw him missing the three-figure mark by 18 runs.

Amla, while batting on 82, defended Pandya’s delivery with light hands. Faf du Plessis, who was at the non-striker’s end, called Amla for a run straight-away. Amla once looked a bit hesitant but then responded to his captain’s call and went for a run.

In the meantime, Pandya ran across, intercepted the running, picked up the ball, turned back and hit a direct throw at the non-striker’s end to shatter the stumps and catch Amla well short of his crease.
