New Delhi. Indian cricket team vice-captain Hardik Pandya’s return to international cricket was a blast. Pandya played an international match against Ireland for the first time since the ODI World Cup 2023. Hardik bowled brilliantly against Ireland in the T20 World Cup match. He bowled the entire 4 overs in which he took 3 wickets. Pandya did wonders in bowling in the seaming conditions of Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York. Even after the powerplay was over, Hardik troubled the Irish batsmen a lot with his dangerous bouncers. With this, he has become the joint third Indian bowler to take the most wickets in T20 World Cup history.
