Indian cricketer Hardik Pandya has once again proved that he is an asset to the team when he scored 83 off just 66 deliveries and took two wickets against Australia in the last ODI played between India and Australia, which was won by India. Hardik has also shown a lot of improvement in his game since he has made his debut at the International level. Hardik is an all-rounder who is not just a good batsman but also pretty handy with ball and can be the third seamer for Team India.
Indian captain Virat Kohli praised Hardik and in fact earlier, he also compared him with the England cricketer Ben Stokes who has amazed everyone with his consistent performances whether it’s batting or bowling.
However, Fazeela Saba, a Pakistani journalist is not happy with the comparison being made between Pandya and Ben Stokes. She feels that Hardik has yet to prove himself. She took to social media to express her opinion and made a little mistake because she addressed Pandya as Pandy.
Here’s what she tweeted, “Pandy undoubtedly is the upcoming multitasked player in cricket but his comparison with Ben Stokes by Indian media seems unjustified.”
The tweet didn’t go well with Indian fans, especially the mistake that she made in his name’s spelling and as a result, Fazeela was trolled mercilessly.
Here are some selected tweets:
Nice idea to get popularity:

Stokes is highly over-rated:

Your tweet itself have words like " Undoubtedly", "Upcoming", Multitasked player".. Then what's wrong in comparision??

A justifying comparison can definitely be made:
Its pandya not pandy, in limited overs cricket he can be compared to ben stokes,i think 2 Pakistan players know better what he is capable of

We are pretty sure that Hardik will prove himself at every given chance and make the country proud. What do you say?
