IND vs AUS 2nd T20 MOM Award: Indian team flamboyant all-rounder Hardik Pandya has won the 'Man of the Match' award with his scintillating knock (42* off 22) studded with three fours and 2 over the ropes. Pandya holds the one end while the other Indian wickets fell on regular intervals. With these combined efforts of Pandya, Dhawan, and Kohli, India hammers Australia by six wickets in the second T20 at SCG to take an unassailable 2-0 in the series.

Team India skipper Virat Kohli speaks about the deadliest all-rounder ''Pandya has raw talent, he knows this is his time.''

Hardik Panda admitted that ''I felt (we were) two good hits (away), quite happy. More than the six I wanted to finish the game. I don't like the game going till the last ball, I like to finish the game early. I was just going to whack the ball anyway (smiles). The whole five games, I've been trying to figure out which bat to bat with. I broke the bat with which I was playing for three years. This one looks alright.'' after winning the MOM Award.
