IPL 2020: Hardik Pandya takes a knee in support of Black Lives Matter

Mumbai Indians all-rounder Hardik Pandya has become the main part of the continuous Indian Premier League 2020 to take a knee on the side of the 'Black Lives Matter' movement.

Pandya's signal came during the game against Rajasthan Royals here on Sunday.

The all-rounder crushed 60 runs from only 21 balls. Subsequent to arriving at his half-century in the nineteenth over, he went down on a knee with his right arm raised to show solidarity with the movement against prejudice.

West Indies all-rounder and Mumbai's substitute captain Kieron Pollard reacted by raising his right clench hand.

After the match, Pandya even tweeted an image of himself with the subtitle "#BlackLivesMatter".

A week ago, West Indies Test captain Jason Holder, who plays for the Sunrisers Hyderbad, had communicated his failure over none of the IPL groups taking a knee in solidarity with the development, which, he felt, went unnoticed in the alliance.

"To be honest, I haven’t had one conversation up here around it. Sometimes it seems it has gone unnoticed, which is a sad thing."

"I guess it’s for us to re-highlight the importance of it, for people to understand what is happening in the world," Holder had said.

The "taking a knee" motion began in the West Indies' Test arrangement in England this mid-year in challenge prejudice after African-American George Floyd was slaughtered by a working white cop in Minneapolis.

Be that as it may, the signal was later suspended for the ensuing voyages through Pakistan and Australia
