Hardik Pandya in action against South Africa© BCCI
Amit Mishra is known for giving the cricket ball a good tweak when bowling his leg spinners and googlies. The veteran bowlers have been quite active on social media lately and his posts usually have a similar twist if not. On Tuesday, Mishra posted a hilarious tweet to Hardik Pandya after the last striped innings with the bat helped India put 179 on the board against South Africa, which turned out to be a winning score in the third T20I in Visakhapatnam.
Hardik hit 4 limits in 21-ball 31 and went unbeaten. His knock was not the smoothest but crucial as India lost their way in the middle overs after a great start through the openers.
Hardik was dropped at just 1 by Tabraiz Shamsi’s David Miller and then managed to get a few limits through edges.
Mishra took to Twitter, posting: “Hardik Pandya is so lucky today to be able to fly a low fuel plane, with a failed engine, in a thunderstorm and still land safely at its destination. #IndvsRSA†

The tweet was picked up by the fans who retweeted it and liked it multiple times.
With India’s win, South Africa lead the series 2-1, with two games to go.
More importantly, it was the first time India managed to beat South Africa in any format.
India had lost 2 Tests and 3 ODIs on its tour earlier this year before losing the first two matches in this series.
