Mumbai Indians all-rounder Hardik Pandya got out in a rather bizarre way in IPL 2020 match against Kolkata Knight Riders(KKR). Pandya hit the wickets with the bat while batting deep into the crease.
Hardik Pandya usually moves deep into the crease during the death overs to avoid the yorkers. His technique has been quite useful as Pandya is known for the big hits in the final overs of the match.
However, in today’s IPL 2020 game versus Kolkata Knight Riders, things did not go on as planned by Pandya. He lost his wicket in the most unusual way by hitting his own wickets.
