This is his best performance in this season. Hardik has got 24 carat gold as Mohit. Who is bowling amazingly in the middle as well as in the death overs. It was Mohit who gave the first blow to Lucknow Super Giants. The pair of Quinton Dickock and Kyle Myers had added 88 runs in 8.2 overs for the first wicket.

My finger is not well: Mohit
After the match, Mohit told that both Mohammed Shami and we talk a lot about how to bowl with the new and old ball. We thought the wicket would dry up and be a bit slow. My fingers were not quite right. For this reason, the knuckle ball was not coming out properly from the hand. But, I tried to keep the ball away from the batsman. Ashish Nehra and I had a discussion about how to use the length ball. He told me not to bowl short under any circumstances and keep the stump to stump line. I tried to do this.
