Angry! Captain Hardik Pandya's Stern Message For Batters Despite 4th T20I Win
After falling behind 0-2 in the five-match T20I series against the West Indies, Hardik Pandya's Indian squad came back to win the next two matches convincingly, bringing the series at 2-2 with one match remaining.
Following the West Indies leg of the series, both sides arrived in America, where Shubman Gill and Yashasvi Jaiswal stole the show with the bat. India captain Hardik Pandya opened up about the team's amazing comeback, detailing his leadership approach.
For Pandya, it was just the beginning, and he advised the batters to be prepared for more difficult situations.
"Gill and Jaiswal were outstanding. There is no dispute about their abilities. They only needed some time between the wickets. As a batting group, we must take on greater responsibility and support the bowlers in the future.
"I've always believed that bowlers win matches," Pandya remarked after the game.
India trailed 0-2 after the first two games, but won the third and fourth games to tie the series. Pandya was naturally overjoyed with the team's performance.
"We lost two games, but the first was due to our own mistakes." We were cruising and slipped in the last four overs. We discussed how these types of games reflect our personalities.
"The boys took the defeats in stride." "The two games we played after the first two defeats showed that we pulled up our socks and played some good cricket," he continued.
Jaiswal, who hit an unbeaten 84 off 51 balls, was named man of the match, and the left-hander stated he batted according to the demands of the squad.
West Indies captain Rovman Powell said batters must keep to their ideas and play well against India's spinners.
"We didn't follow through on our plans. "We knew this series would come down to how we played against India's spinners," Powell said.
