Team India vice-captain Hardik Pandya was unhappy with one of the substitute outfield players during the second ODI against Sri Lanka on Thursday 12 January at Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
The incident occurred at the end of the 11th over of the Sri Lankan innings. A video has gone viral on social media of Pandya berating a substitute for not getting him water on time.
The all-rounder’s face was not visible in the video. However, many fans suspected that it was Pandya because of the voice. He was heard saying:
“Paani manga the final ending. G**dm**a rahe ho udhar.”

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka won the draw and chose to bat first in the second ODI. However, the visitors couldn’t fight back strongly with the racquet and were bundled for 215.
Opener Nuwanidu Fernando has a good half century behind him on his ODI debut. His promising knock came to an untimely end after being run out to 50 by Shubman Gill. India’s Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammed Siraj each took three wickets while Umran Malik conceded two scalps.
Hardik Pandya led India to T20I series win over Sri Lanka
Talismanic all-rounder Hardik Pandya has been named skipper for the Men in Blue’s three-game T20I home series against Sri Lanka played earlier this month.
The home side started the year with a thrilling two-round win over Sri Lanka. While the visitors secured a 16-run victory in the duel that followed, Hardik Pandya and Co. recovered and won the series decision by 67 runs.
Pandya failed to make much of an impact with the racquet, amassing 45 runs from three games for an average of 15. However, he did a good job with the ball, taking two wickets in the series and finishing with a fantastic 11-6 save.
While the 29-year-old failed to impress as a batsman, he received plenty of praise for his brave leadership as India completed a 2-1 series win.
