In this match, all eyes were on the form of some players of the Indian team, which also included the name of this vice-captain Hardik Pandya. IPL 2024 was very bad for Hardik, in which he could not manage to show any magic with the ball along with the bat. Now Hardik has almost left this bad form behind, in which he showed amazing performance with the bat in the practice match against Bangladesh, played an unbeaten innings of 40 runs with just 23 balls and also played the role of a finisher very well.

Hardik hit three consecutive sixes
