Hardik Pandya was seen as a vital cog in Indian wheel when it came to doing well in England, but to say that it has been a disappointing Test series for Pandya against England so far would be an understatement.
Pandya has scored 90 runs at an average of 22.5 in the series and two of the three wickets picked up by him have come while the batsmen were looking to accelerate.
Hardik Pandya has come in for severe criticism for his performances with both Michael Holding and Harbhajan Singh having scathing words to say about him. Holding in fact went as far as to say that the Mumbai Indians all-rounder is not yet a Test all-rounder as he is not effective as a batsman and lacks consistency with the ball.
Since making his debut last year in Galle, Pandya has scored 458 runs at 32.71 and picked 10 wickets in nine Tests played for India.

The criticism hasn’t stopped Pandya from being himself on social networking site Instagram. The 25-year-old posted a picture of himself on the site and no sooner had the picture been posted disgruntled India fans vented their anger on the underperforming Pandya.
Here are some of the responses that came Pandya’s way following his Instagram post.

breathclicking Why can’t you practice and make our country proud!! Professional cricketers should behave like professionals and work hard for their country. It is not acceptable at all this behaviour of the whole team. Should devote all your time towards practice and honing your skills. India needs all of you to man up and play like men. Stop putting up these photos and get serious!! Open your eyes 👀
