In the thrilling encounter between India and Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2023, a moment of magic from Hardik Pandya left Pakistan’s skipper Babar Azam stunned and put India in the driver’s seat. On the reserve day in Colombo, India was in a commanding position after setting a daunting target of 357.

Pakistan, known for its resilience and the batting prowess of Babar Azam, still had hope. However, Hardik Pandya had other plans. Hardik Pandya, who had been handed the ball immediately after the powerplay, began building pressure on Babar with three consecutive dot balls.

On the fourth delivery, Pandya delivered a wide ball, tempting Babar to go for an offside stroke. But what followed was sheer brilliance. The ball swung prodigiously in the air, deviating away from Babar’s bat and pad before crashing into the stumps. It was an unplayable delivery, the kind that can dismiss any top batter in world cricket.
