After putting on a fabulous show with bat and ball in the third and final ODI against England at Old Trafford, Hardik Pandya said he was pleased to have contributed in both the departments of the game. India sealed a five-wicket win to clinch the series 2-1.

When Hardik came out to bat, India were in a tight spot having lost four wickets in a manageable chase of 260. At such a delicate juncture, Hardik played with positive intent and stitched a stand of 133 with Rishabh Pant. Hardik didn't just show his shot-making range but also juxtaposed his aggressive play with efficient strike rotation to put in a complete performance with the bat.
