2nd ODI: Bhuvneshwar strikes early to ignite hopes at Eden

All three sailed beyond the boundary as Pandya raced to a half-century and with MS Dhoni resurrected an India innings that, according to former Australia skipper Michael Clarke, should have ended at 130 or thereabouts. The visitors eventually lost the first ODI by 26 runs via D/L method in Chennai. As soon as you miss against a player like Hardik, it's going to go the distance.

Earlier, the 23-year-old all-rounder hammered Zampa for 24 runs, which included three sixes, in an over.

"M.S. has been doing this for a long time, he has played a lot of innings under pressure throughout his career".

It's worth noting that Virat Kohli has said that Pandya can become India's Ben Stokes, who is regarded as the best all-rounder now.

"I pride myself on bowling well under pressure but the other day I did not execute it too well", Zampa said.

While his performance got him Man of the Match (MoM) award, his comparison with England all-rounder Ben Stokes post the match didn't go down well with a Pakistan journalist. "He is a very good player". "In Australia you can mess up your length a little bit and you will probably get away with it purely because of the size of the ground. It has happened to people like Shane Warne too", Zampa asserted.

Zampa also praised the Indian spinners, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, who kept troubling the Aussies.

However, it remains to be seen if Zampa, who bowled at the indoor nets on Tuesday, can spin it around for the Aussies in the garden of Eden, which remained under cover due to heavy rain.

Pandya smashed a 66-ball 83 and claimed two wickets to give the hosts a 1-0 lead in the five-match series at Chennai´s MA Chidambaram Stadium. But they (Indian bowlers) bowled very well to us.

Zampa said the experience and wisdom of Mahendra Singh Dhoni helped Pandya express himself in the pressure situation as the two scripted a game-turning 118-run partnership for the sixth wicket.
