CricketWorst kind of bowling that I've seen: India legend lashes out at Hardik Pandya

Srinagar: India legend Sunil Gavaskar lashed out at Mumbai India skipper Hardik Pandya on live TV during IPL 2024 match vs CSK for the ordinary last over bowling.

Mumbai Indians slumped to their 4th defeat of IPL 2024, losing to Chennai Super Kings by 20 runs on Sunday evening.

Hardik’s own performances are putting him in the firing line. Last evening CSK posted over 200, but the target could have been lower had Hardik prevented MS Dhoni from going big in the last over. Instead, Hardik, whose bowling looked off-colour, gave away 2/43 from three overs, including a 24-run final over in which Dhoni clattered him for a hat-trick of sixes to finish the innings. And boy, was Gavaskar miffed.

“Probably the worst kind of bowling that I’ve seen for a long, long time. It almost looks like I’ve had this embrace with my hero. I’ve got the kind of deliveries that he’s gonna hit for sixes. One six is fine. The next one is a length ball when you know this batter is hunting for a length ball that he wants to hit. Third ball is again a full toss on the legs when you know he [Dhoni] is looking for a six,” Gavaskar said on Star Sports during the innings break.

“Oh, absolutely ordinary bowling, ordinary captaincy. They should have been restricted despite the fact that Ruturaj Gaikwad had batted so well along with Shivam Dube. I do believe that they should have been restricted to 185-190”.
