Hardik Pandya as fourth seamer….Shami is good with the ball both at the start and in death. He bowled really well at the death in warm-up match vs Australia,” Gambhir told Zee News.

He only comes to play 3 or 4 overs in the death. But what if India loses a couple of quick wickets? That is when you need Pant as you don’t want to expose Hardik so early,” said Gambhir
