In a crucial passage of play during the Asia Cup Finals between India and Sri Lanka, Hardik Pandya showcased his bowling prowess once again by claiming an important wicket. This time, it was the dismissal of Pramod, who was caught at first slip by none other than the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli.
Pandya’s delivery was enticingly full in length, positioned just outside the off-stump. Pramod, looking to seize the moment, attempted a drive away from his body. However, the ball kissed the outer edge of his bat, producing a thick, audible sound as it left the bat.
The fielders in the slip cordon, known for their sharp reflexes and safe hands, were alert to the opportunity. Virat Kohli, India’s captain, stationed at first slip, demonstrated his exceptional catching skills as he dove to his right, pouching the ball with precision.
