Suyakumar Yadav becomes Aaron Hardie’s maiden T20I wicket in Ind vs Aus 3rd T20I

Aaron Hardie on Tuesday picked up the first T20I wicket of his career in the form of Indian captain Suryakumar Yadav. The all-rounder, who replaced David Warner in the Australian squad before the beginning of the Ind vs Aus T20I Series, helped Australia break a crucial partnership by removing the dangerous-looking Indian skipper.

Suryakumar got off to a steady start after India lost two quick wickets in the form of Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ishan Kishan. Surya soon came into the groove and started playing some expansive shots. SKY targeted Hardie as the right-arm fast bowler went for a fair share of runs.

However, it was Hardie who had the last laugh as Surya horribly miscued a scoop short on a good-length ball. The ball found SKY’s outer edged and carried to the gloves of Mathew Wade. SKY looked in touch and could’ve gone on to play a long innings but Hardie made sure the Indian skipper departed promptly.

The wicket will be a big boost for Hardie who has been hailed as the next big thing in Australian cricket. Hardie, who plies trade for Perth Scorchers in Big Bash League, has been backed by the likes of Mike Hussey to be the player of the tournament.
