Hardik Pandya was back at his swashbuckling best on Tuesday as he smashed an unbeaten 71 off just 30 balls to guide India to a comprehensive total in the first T20I against Australia in Mohali.

Pandya’s form, both with bat and ball, tapered in the Asia Cup after a match-winning knock against Pakistan in the opening game. In the series opener against Australia, however, he was back at his lethal best, smashing seven fours and five sixes during his stay at the crease and striking at 236.67.

His destruction with the bat helped India finish on a high by posting a formidable 208/6 after being invited to bat by the Aussies.

Of the five sixes that he struck in the innings, three came off the final three balls of the innings as Pandya took all-rounder Cameron Green to the cleaners with 21 runs coming off the 20th over. India made the most of the slog overs with 60 runs coming off the last fours and the in-form Pandya had a major role to play in that assault.

Pandya’s knock also drew plenty of praise on social media, especially on microblogging website Twitter. Here, we take a look at some of the top reactions:
