Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya has revealed the secret behind the gesture he made prior to the dismissal of Pakistani opening batsman Imam ul Haq.

A notable incident occurred during the World Cup match between Pakistan and India played in Ahmedabad in which Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya was seen whispering to the ball just before the dismissal of Imam ul Haq. One ball earlier, Imam had hit a boundary on Hardik Pandya’s ball.

While speaking about the incident, Hardik Pandya said, “I basically hurdled abuse at myself to bowl a better length.”


India defeated Pakistan by seven wickets in the match.
