During the third and final ODI between India and England in Pune, Shardul Thakur once again showcased his capability with the bat and played a much-needed cameo for his team.

Coming in to bat at No. 8, Shardul got off the mark with a six off England speedster Mark Wood. With all-rounder Krunal Pandya struggling for runs at the other end, Thakur went on to score a 21-ball 30 with the help of one four and three sixes.

In the 45th over of the match, Shardul even impressed the opposition all-rounder Ben Stokes with his clean hitting. It all happened after Shardul charged down the track to whack Stokes for a six over long-off, leading the southpaw to check Thakur’s bat.

Relive the moment here:

After Jos Buttler won the toss and opted to field, English bowlers bundled out India for 329 in 48.2 overs. Despite losing wickets in clusters, the Men in Blue posted a competitive total on the board, thanks to quickfire half-centuries from Rishabh Pant (78), Shikhar Dhawan (67) and Hardik Pandya (64).
