India flexed their batting muscle as they completed a 294 run chase in 47.5 overs with five wickets in hand in the third One-Day International against Australia in Indore thereby completing a 3-0 series win. No wonder then that when Pandya, a fortnight shy of turning 24, sat down to interact with the media soon after pocketing yet another man-of-the-match award after leading India’s run chase in the third ODI against Australia, he was simply oozing confidence in each of his replies. He’s (Pandya) a star, has the ability with the ball, bat and in the field. Tomorrow, he may bat at 80 for 4, like he did in the first ODI with Dhoni.

Celebrating Pandya’s knock, the Indian skipper played the interviewer on Sunday night and interviewed Hardik regarding his knock, sending him at No. 4 and the series win.

Pandya has become the cynosure of all eyes with his six- hitting prowess, demonstrated to good effect in the ongoing five-ODI series against Australia. I wanted to target the left-arm spinner.

Dubai conducts first test flight of self-flying taxi
The “flying taxi”, developed by German drone firm Volocopter, soared to a height of 200 metres and flew for about five minutes. No clear date has yet been given for when the public will be able to take to Dubai’s skies on board this rather special taxi.

It was Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane who provided India the early impetus, racking up 139 runs for the opening wicket. “That’s why I waited till the seventh over and then I got the opportunity to change the momentum and eventually one over changed the momentum in that game”, he said. “I see these situations as opportunities”.

“It’s not about playing just the one way you want to play”. It’s about being positive and backing yourself and if I feel like it, I go for it.

Kohli revealed the person behind sending Pandya at an unusual position, at No.4 ahead of other batsmen, especially Pandey who was looking to make a mark in the series.

Violent crime up in 2016 for second year in a row
Laguna Niguel’s violent crime rate jumped from 49 incidents to 65, and property crimes in the city increased from 691 to 751. In the region’s largest city, San Jose, violent crime went up 13 percent from 2015 to 2016 and homicides rose from 30 to 47.

However, over the a year ago, Pandya has proven that not only has he believed in his ability but also lived up to the faith showed in him by the team management. When I was told I was going to go out to bat next, I was happy.

After clinching the series, Pandya, in his typical swagger, stated that reading the situation was important. This is the first time I got the chance to play so many balls, so that was great.

Hardik Pandya also took the important wicket of David Warner for 42. “This concept of “play your natural game”, which I hear all the time, frustrates me because there’s no such thing in my belief as “natural game”, Dravid added. Having taken the team to a semblance of safety, Pandya seized the moment and smashed three big sixes and a boundary off wrist spinner Adam Zampa in the 37th over. Pandya’s bowling too is getting better with each outing. They were 35-40 runs short.

He said, “No nation on Earth has an interest in seeing this band of criminals arm itself with nuclear weapons and missiles “. However, even the leadership of the United States armed forces opposed Trump’s efforts to scrap the 2015 agreement.

Pandya’s all-round feats have given rise to comparisons with Kapil Dev.
