Internet praises Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya after duo help India seal series against England

As the curtain fell on the India v England series on Sunday, Hardik Pandya and Rishabh Pant shone brightly in the 3rd ODI game in Manchester.

Going on 260 runs, Pant scored his first ODI 100 as he remained unbeaten on 125 while partner Pandya skillfully backed him up with a well done 71. Pandya was also England’s chief innings wrecker with his devastating 4/24 spell restricting England to 259 runs.

While Pant will rightly be in the spotlight due to his century, which he earned by breaking 16 fours and two sixes in his sublime shot at Old Trafford, Hardik’s resilient shot should not be lost in the cacophony.

Twitter, however, erupted for both men as India sealed the series 2-1 as a plethora of reactions rained down from all corners of the internet.

The legendary Sachin Tendulkar was among the first to congratulate the duo on Twitter, writing, “Congrats to #TeamIndia for winning the ODI Series. Keep up the good work and continue this form. Special mention to @RishabhPant17 and @hardikpandya7 for a wonderful performance.

“Looks like the 45 minute conversation made sense 😅!! Well done @RishabhPant17 this is how you pace your sleeves @hardikpandya7 great to watch,” Yuvraj Singh tweeted while Suresh Raina said, “Congratulations to #TeamIndia for putting up an amazing fight against England in the last ODI game. Amazing partnership between @RishabhPant17 and @hardikpandya7. Kudos to the whole team.

Dinesh Karthik also contributed with a tweet that read, “Quality knock @ RishabhPant17. In a series that decides when it matters the most @hardikpandya7 you are one of the best all-rounders in the world right now. Period. Great job guys. Kudos to the Indian team.

Virender Sehwag said: “Last game in a series and @RishabhPant17 playing brilliantly – it’s a better love story than twilight. Amazing rounds from an amazing player – with great support from Hardik and Jadeja .

Other tweets praising the duo were:

India will then embark on a tour of the West Indies from July 22 where they will play 3 ODIs and 5 T20Is
