India and Pakistan are locking horns with each other at the Melbourne cricket ground in the Super-12 stage of the T20 World Cup 2022.

The Indian all-rounder, Hardik Pandya produced an amusing moment in the game as he was seen mocking Haider Ali while taking a walk back to the pavilion with a sarcastic smile.

The men have done a decent job while bowling first thus far. Pakistan managed to score 159/8 in their quota of 20 overs, and the pacers were turning out to be impressive for the Indian team. Arshdeep Singh has made a mark with his impressive World Cup debut, while Hardik Pandya also chipped in with a couple of wickets in one over.

Earlier in the game, the Indian skipper, Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to bowl first citing the overcast conditions. However, Hardik’s actions after the dismissal were more noteworthy than the actual dismissal. Hardik Pandya came to bowl in the 14th over for his second of the innings.

Haider Ali was facing the last delivery of the over to bulldoze the Indian bowlers with some power hitting. Hardik pitched the ball on a good length spot, and the batter decided to whack it over mid-wicket. It was a miscued shot, and Suryakumar Yadav caught an easy catch in the deep to send the batter back to the pavilion.

Ali was walking back to the pavilion and then Hardik Pandya was seen coming up with a cheeky response. While the batter was returning, Hardik mocked him with a sarcastic smile. Hardik’s reaction was due to an identical dismissal of Shadab Khan, whom he got in the same manner earlier in the over.

Here are the videos of the wickets taken by Hardik Pandya in the same over:
