When Mumbai Indians needed Hardik Pandya to play some powerful hitting in the end but he got himself out by hit-wicket in a very bizarre way against KKR in the 5th match of IPL 2020.
But before he got out by hit wicket he scored 18 runs in 13 balls while hitting 2 fours and 1 six. At that moment Mumbai Indians needed him to hit some big shots so Mumbai Indians can reach a big total but he ended himself in getting out in a disappointing way.

All this happened in the 19th over when KKR’s bowler Andre Russell bowled a yorker outside off stump. At that moment Hardik Pandya was much inside the crease and found himself clipping the off stumps with the edge of the bat.

After this moment it took some time to realize the reason behind him getting out. It got clear when replay played and found that Hardik Pandya has got out by hit wicket.
After that, he went to the dugout by smiling and realizing how silly the mistake he has done. Krunal Pandya came after the departure of Hardik Pandya and Mumbai Indians ended the inning on 195/5 in 20 overs.
For Mumbai Indians, the captain Rohit Sharma himself led from the front. Rohit Sharma scored 80 runs in 54 balls before getting out to the Shivam Mavi. He hit 6 big sixes in this inning and also completed 200 sixes in IPL. With this, Rohit Sharma became only 4th player and 2nd Indian to hit 200 or more sixes in IPL.
