MS Dhoni and Hardik Pandya had a great day with the bat as the two batsmen stitched a partnership of 118 runs for the sixth in the first ODI of the five-match series in Chennai. Earlier, after winning the toss, Indian skipper Virat Kohli opted to bat first but the home side had a dismal start as they lost some early wickets to get reduced to 87/5. But an aggressive knock from Pandya anchored India to a total of 281/7 in 50 overs.

Pandya was undone by Adam Zampa in the 41st over while Dhoni on the other side showed resistance to score 79 before getting out in the last over of the innings. Here’s how pundits and experts have reacted on the sensible partnership between the two Indian batsmen.
