India had five wickets remaining when they completed the 148-run mark. The Player of the Match was announced to be Hardik Pandya. Every Indian supporter in the world is now celebrating thanks to Hardik Pandya’s outstanding performance. After a long time, India and Pakistan played a match that was so tight that both teams had equal chances of winning until Pandya scored six to end it in the “Blue’s Way”
