Hardik Pandya delivered an outstanding performance against Ireland after India won the toss and chose to bowl. In his 4 overs, he took 3 wickets, conceded just 27 runs, and bowled a maiden over as well.

Hardik Pandya faced heavy criticism before the World Cup, mainly due to issues after his transfer back to the Mumbai Indians from the Gujarat Titans. 

Hardik replaced Rohit Sharma as captain, which angered Mumbai Indians' fans, leading to him being booed in almost every game of the 2024 IPL. This affected Hardik's performance, making his season with both bat and ball quite average.

When he was selected for the T20 World Cup squad, many questioned the decision, but Hardik proved his critics wrong by taking 3 wickets against Ireland today.

Hardik Pandya's Comeback Celebrated by Fans

Social media, which once heavily criticized Hardik Pandya, is now celebrating his comeback. Devoted fans of Virat Kohli were particularly enthusiastic, backing Hardik and celebrating each of his wickets.

Some fans initially wanted Hardik to remove his headband, but once he started taking wickets, they were cool with it.

Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians faced trolling from some fans. A group of supporters believes Rohit Sharma understands how to utilize Hardik's bowling better than Hardik does himself, implying that Hardik bowling powerplay overs for Mumbai Indians himself ahead of Bumrah was a questionable decision.

Batting first, Ireland was all out for just 96 runs. Besides Hardik Pandya's impressive performance, Jasprit Bumrah and Arshdeep Singh each took two wickets in the game.
