Hardik Pandya is rebuked for refusing to play Tilak Varma’s fifty, citing the requirement of two more shots from his batsman.

The social media controversy surrounding Hardik Pandya, India’s captain for the T20I series against West Indies, is centered around his selfless act of failing to score a half-century for Tilak Varma in the third T10I against Australia. Even former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra has been vocal about his dissatisfaction after being heavily criticized by fans.

Tilak’s last three innings saw him score 39, 51, and 49 not-out runs, making him the first Indian to achieve a 30+ score in all of his first three international innings.

In a video on Chopra’s YouTube channel, he revealed that the Indian cricketer is an exceptional player. He has already achieved 30+ scores in his first three international innings and was close to scoring another fifty.

Tilak Varma required just one run to score his fifty, while Hardik Pandya hit a six to claim the victory.

Chopra added: “Hardik’s approach when batting involves staying calm and not getting carried away, followed by attacking hits without NRR, which would have made no difference. He told Tilak to hit the big shots even though it was only required for 2 off 13 balls, and he managed to smash a six.

Despite losing the first two T20Is against West Indies, India managed to win and keep the series alive. However still, they remain 1-2 down in the 5-match match.
