New Delhi , March 12, 2020: All-rounder Hardik Pandya is the player who has all eyes on him in the three ODI series against South Africa.

Pandya had hit sixes in this tournament. He talked about his brilliant innings on Chahal TV.

Talking about his performance, he said, ‘I was playing the match after a long time. I knew that the more I play, my confidence will increase. After hitting 10 sixes, I felt that if 10 sixes have been hit then why stop now. Although I never thought that I would ever hit 20 sixes in an innings.
