Hardik Pandya Opens Up On Giving Young Umran Malik Last Over Of The Match Against Ireland

By IANS News June 29, 2022 • 13:32 PM View: 477

With Ireland needing 17 runs off the final over against India to chase down 226, young speedster Umran Malik was handed the responsibility to get the visitors over the finish line. Despite conceding a no ball and two back-to-back boundaries, Malik held his nerve by conceding two singles and a bye to give India a narrow four-run victory and win the series 2-0.

"Not worried to be honest (about the final over). Wanted to keep pressure out of my equation, wanted to be in the present. I backed Umran since he has pace. With his pace, its difficult for people to hit. I think we've come to play a game of cricket, so Ireland were going to show us what they have. Credit to them, they played amazing shots. At the same point of time, credit to our bowlers to cross the line," said captain Hardik Pandya after the match on giving Malik final over.
