Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya was the star of the match in the third and final Test against Sri Lanka. He smashed a brilliant hundred to ensure that the Indian side posted a mammoth total in their first innings. It was his maiden Test century and it comes as no surprise why it will remain special for him in his career. Hardik was named the Player of the Match for his efforts and the Baroda all-rounder was all smiles after the game.

As Team India whitewashed the hosts 3-0, Hardik’s teammate KL Rahul interviewed him for the official website of the BCCI. KL showered many questions at Hardik during the interaction. He asked the all-rounder about the feelings that he was going through during the game when he was on 99. Hardik conceded that he backed himself to play his natural game.
