Dwayne Bravo, Mohammad Hafeez, Shane Watson, and Samiullah Shinwari are the only players in the history of cricket who have ever taken four wickets and scored fifty runs or more in the same game.

India’s Hardik batted at No. 5 and appeared at ease right away. He played his strokes without any hesitation. Hardik scored 51 before being removed by Reece Topley, with 6 fours and 1 six.

Hardik himself also discussed his performance and the record after the game.
“When I last played a T20 match in England, I believe I took 4 wickets and made around 30 runs. Since I was the first Indian to reach fifty runs and claim four wickets, I kind of anticipated that “At the presentation ceremony, he said.

“I am now enjoying my cricket. For me, getting my physique ready takes a lot of time. I want to take advantage of the opportunities, similar to the break I took before this run of play.

“I thought I needed the break. Giving you all is required; else, there is no purpose to playing. So I needed that break, and I am glad I am here now” he continued.

When India takes on England in the second T20I, they will be favoured to win the series. With Hardik Pandya in excellent form with both bat and ball, India will be looking to extend their unbeaten run in the shortest format and secure a stunning victory.
