Video: Hardik Pandya abuses Mohammad Shami after a midfield – Fans are furious at the GT captain

Gujarat Titans and Sunrisers Hyderabad went face to face last night at the DY Patil Stadium in their first ever clash in the Indian Premier League. Ahead of the match everyone had expected Gujarat Titans to win the match comfortably as GT were unbeaten in the tournament coming into this match while Sunrisers Hyderabad had only won 1 out of the 3 matches that they had played. However, the outcome of the match shocked everyone as Sunrisers Hyderabad emerged victorious by a huge margin and totally outplayed Gujarat Titans in almost every aspect of the game.

As we all know, Gujarat Titans captain Hardik Pandya is not very fond of losing matches and thus he lost his composure last night as well when it was seeming to look like the match was slipping out of their hands. In the thirteenth over of the match, Hardik Pandya came in to ball when Rahul Tripathi and SRH captain Kane Williamson were batting. While facing Rahul Tripathi, Hardik Pandya delivered a leg cutter and Tripathi hit is straight near the boundary towards GT fielder Mohammad Shami. It was a one bounce shot and Mohammad Shami could have attempted to catch it but he didn’t. It was a misjudgement on his part. As a result, Hardik Pandya was furious at his player and he was even seen hurling some abuses at Shami. Shami was clearly very upset from that and the video has already gone viral all over social media.

Fans have criticised Pandya for such a poor behaviour against his own player and they have said that Pandya must learn to keep calm during pressure situation instead of abusing his players.
