Social media in disbelief as Hardik Pandya put a superb diving effort vs CSK

Hardik Pandya bowled two overs in the high-octane MI vs CSK game, claiming the wicket of his opposition skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad and leaked 17 runs

The highly anticipated clash between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the IPL 2024 witnessed a moment of athleticism from Hardik Pandya. During the first ball of the 11th over, the MI captain, dived full length at mid-off in an attempt to save a boundary off Romario Shepherd’s delivery.

Shivam Dube, the CSK batsman who was batting on 15 at that time, sliced the ball towards Pandya’s right. While Pandya displayed exceptional commitment by putting his body on the line, the ball eluded his grasp and raced to the boundary. It was a superb fielding effort by the all-rounder, who gave his all despite bowling the previous over.
