4, 4, 6, wide, 1
Pandya finishes it off in style. He hammers Negi to get the 22 runs in the over
and MI win with an over to spare. Now here’s the question why the over was
given to Negi? Exactly He was too short and it was all too easy for Hardik.
Didn’t even blink and finished it off without any trouble.
Pandya, The finisher!!!!
