Hardik Pandya doesnt do regular. Life, king size seems to be more his thing. He is what they call filmy - read: dramatic. Pandya is a showman; look up his interviews on YouTube to watch him explode into a gazillion expressions in less than a minute. He is image-conscious, finicky about brands, and even shares his birthday with Amitabh Bachchan; you wonder why he isnt in Bollywood.Pandyas love for the limelight also means he loves taking on a challenge. In IPL 2016, he had the chance to be play-maker when Mumbai Indians promoted him to No. 3, but the move didnt quite work out. Both his batting and bowling form took a hit, and he was left out of Indias subsequent limited-overs series against Zimbabwe and West Indies. Up to that point, though, Pandya had featured in each of the 16 T20Is India had played in 2016, picking up 15 wickets at an average of 24. He was then sent to Australia with the India A team, where, statistically, he didnt have a great tour, but the selectors had seen enough to bring him back.A few minutes before the toss in Dharamsala, Pandya was surrounded by his team-mates as he collected his maiden ODI cap from Kapil Dev, incidentally 38 years to the day since Indias finest allrounder had made his Test debut. Pandya was in the spotlight again for about 30 seconds. MS Dhoni decided Pandya could bask in it a while longer when he gave him the new ball.Our thinking was to give him a chance to exploit the new ball. The reason being, we all felt, he is quite deceptive - he can bowl quick and he has got movement, Dhoni said. Even on wickets where some of the other bowlers dont get that kind of swing, he is still somebody who can get some purchase of the wicket.Pandya didnt begin well, though, as Martin Guptill took him for three fours off his first five balls. The numbers werent in his favour again, but two of those three boundaries were off edges, and a fourth delivery only just missed Guptills outside edge. Dhoni made note and installed a third slip before the last delivery of the over. Pandya got the ball to swerve in on a length and straighten to find Guptills edge, which went went to second slip.Pandya took off in celebration, with arms outstretched, but there was none of his usual vein-bursting screams. His only extravagance on the day, in fact, was a pair of sunglasses that appeared to be fashioned after cartoon characters Swat Kats headgear.Pandya maintained good pace, staying between the late 130s and early 140s, and married it with late movement to frequently find the batsmens body: Kane Williamson copped one on the thigh pad, while Tom Latham, who handled Pandya with the most ease, was hit on the box. While Pandya leaked a boundary in each of his first three overs and bled 26 runs - mostly by bowling too full - he made it up by giving away only five more runs in his next four overs.He was particularly effective against the left-hand batsmen, conceding only 18 runs off the 31 balls they faced. Pandya benefited as much from his Test match length as from his new-ball partner Umesh Yadavs accuracy at the other end; together they pinned down the returning Corey Anderson before his attempt to club Pandya was snaffled by a diving Umesh at mid-off.With the first leg of the Pandya experiment having gone well, Dhoni said he wanted to give him a decent run with the new ball. We only have eight games before the Champions Trophy [including the Dharamsala ODI], so we would like to see under different situations and conditions how he reacts and how he quickly he can adapt to the conditions, Dhoni said. Of course, lets say for example, if it is 2-2 and it is the fifth game of the series, then we will obviously try to play the best XI. But, I dont see any reason if he keeps performing the way he did in this game why he cant be our first pick when it comes to the three fast bowlers.Pandya, meanwhile, was back in the limelight when he walked out to collect his Man-of-the-Match award. The characteristic wide grin was in place, but there was no excessive animation, mirroring his manner from the game. It wasnt a bad change to embrace on a comeback. To the new ball then, and new beginnings. Christian Kabasele Jersey . -- Jakob Silfverberg is making himself right at home with the Anaheim Ducks, scoring four goals in his first four games. Thibaut Courtois Jersey . Both players have lower body injuries that will keep them out of the lineup until at least January 31, which is the first game they can be activated from IR. http://www.belgiumsoccerpro.com/Thorgan-Hazard-Belgium-Jersey/ . On Tuesday, Ottawa placed forward Cory Conacher and defenceman Joe Corvo on waivers as trade rumours swirl around the Senators. Koen Casteels Jersey . The Swede became the first golfer to win the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai in the same season. "It is still taking a little time to sink in what Ive achieved this week as was the case when I won the FedEx Cup but then it just kept getting better and better as the days went on and I am sure this will be the same," he said. Thomas Vermaelen Jersey .C. -- Al Jefferson joked that he feels he can score from anywhere on the court. Haseeb v PaceHaseeb Hameed got a reprieve in the first innings when Vijay grassed an edge at first slip. Umesh Yadavs delivery was on a fifth-stump and a three-quarters length, a spot where youre not sure whether to go forward or back, and thats where Haseeb was found wanting too. In the first innings, he tried to go back and, in the second innings, to an identical delivery from Shami (over 40.1) he tried to go forward, albeit to an older ball. On both occasions the ball found the outside edge. Indias seamers will doubtless target the same line and length more often in the series.Standing outside off for Ashwin, standing on leg stump for Jadeja Haseeb stood on a leg-stump line for Ravindra Jadeja and tried to play most of his deliveries off the back foot. Since the balls pitching within the stumps didnt turned appreciably throughout the match, the ones that stayed straight after pitching posed the bigger threat against Jadeja. To counter that, Haseeb preferred to play back as a default tactic. Against R Ashwin, however, he stayed on an off-stump line and went forward to most deliveries, which took lbw out of the equation by ensuring the impact was always outside off. It was a good tactic on this pitch in Rajkot.Cook sans the drive For a spinner, the best way to succeed on these pitches is to pitch the ball full and bring the batsman onto the front foot as often as possible. Indias spinners, brought up on these surfaces, have known the right length like the back of theeir hands and havent been afraid of bowling the full length.dddddddddddd Common sense would tell you that, if a batsman were to succeed against them, he must drive the ball well. But have a look at Cooks wagon wheel against spin and itll tell you how wrong our assumption is. He hardly ever drove the ball through the off-side, irrespective of which way the ball was turning after pitching. Bouncers In this Test, Indias seamers not only bowled the fastest balls but, also, their average speeds were higher than their English counterparts. Since Indias batsmen got hit a few times on the helmet, it was expected that their own seamers would return the favour too. While they did try a few bouncers to Alastair Cook, they didnt try it even once to Hameed. In fact, there was only one attempted bouncer to Hameed out of the 259 deliveries he received in the course of the match.Why have the field for the bad balls? Cook delayed Englands declaration to rule out an India win. Having lots of runs on the board allowed the captain to have an attacking field throughout, and thats where Cooks captaincy left a bit to be desired. For Zafar Ansari and Adil Rashid, Cook had a deep midwicket and a fielder at sweeper-cover on the fence while Pujara and Vijay were batting. Why have so many runs on the board if youre reluctant to put more fielders in catching positions?
