In the 19th over, Hardik Pandya hit wicket on the third ball of Andre Russell. Pandya was trying to make a big shot, due to which Pandya came too much into the crease to play short and the bell fell from his bat. For Mumbai, Pandya could score 18 runs off 13 balls.

This is not the first time a hearty hit-wicket has been dismissed in this manner in the IPL. Pandya was first hit-wicket in 2008 against Kings XI Punjab. Apart from this, he has also been a hit-wicket against Rajasthan Royals in 2019.

Hardik Pandya is the first batsman to be hit-wicket in this season of IPL. At the same time, he is the 11th player to be out in the league in this way. This is a special reason why Hardik Pandya is being made fun of on social media.
