Team India won the second T20I match played against New Zealand in Lucknow by 6 wickets to equalize 1-1 in the three-match series. However, it was not as easy for the Hardik Pandya-led team as it was at the Ekana Stadium. New Zealand set a target of only 100 runs in front of India, but in chasing this small target, the Indian team had a lot of problems and they won in the last over.

After this victory of Team India, former Indian cricketer and Gautam Gambhir was seen raging over Hardik Pandya. He has also given a big reason for this. Please tell that in the second T20, Yuzvendra Chahal was included in the Indian XI by excluding Umran Malik. But Captain Hardik made him do only two overs.
Gautam Gambhir was furious about this decision and said that this decision taken by Hardik was beyond his understanding.

The Indian cricket team made a major change in the playing XI for the second T20 International against New Zealand, replacing Umran Malik with Yuzvendra Chahal. However, Chahal bowled only 2 overs in the match, despite being brought in to provide wickets on a spin friendly surface. When former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir was asked about captain Hardik Pandya’s decision, he said, “It is surprising. How can I answer that?”

Former India opener Gautam Gambhir said on Star Sports, “Even on such a wicket, if you bowl only two overs to number-1 bowler Yuzvendra Chahal, how will it happen. Yuzvendra Chahal took 1 crucial wicket in the match, but his underutilisation is surprising.
Gautam Gambhir said that you want to give chance to new bowlers, but you could have used Chahal in a better way. Perhaps he could have got New Zealand out even before this score.
