Hardik Pandya fastest ever by Indian batsman at number 8 or lower

Hardik Pandya proved his credentials as an all-format batsman by slamming his first International century, while also becoming the fastest Indian batsman to register a ton batting at number 8 or lower in terms of balls played.

Team India started off proceedings with the bat rather poorly after Wriddhiman Saha departed cheaply in the morning session on the second Day of the third Test between India and Sri Lanka at Pallekele stadium.

It was Sri Lanka’s pace spearhead Vishwa Fernando who removed the Indian wicket-keeper batsman but that didn’t entirely derail India’s bid to put a big total on board, as Kuldeep Yadav and Pandya put on a 62-run partnership for 9th wicket before the Kuldeep fell to Lakshan Sandakan. Pandya, refused to succumb to circumstances and unleashed his trademark hitting before he realised that a maiden international century isn’t a distant dream.
