After the T20 World Cup, all the cricket teams are gradually gearing up for the bilateral series, the Indian team will also play the first T20 match from Friday as part of the tour of New Zealand. India will play 3 T20s and 3 ODI series with New Zealand team during this tour. While the young player Hardik Pandya will lead Team India for the T20 series, Shikhar Dhawan will be the captain for the ODI series. Also, former Indian cricketer VVS Laxman will be the team coach for these two series. Laxman spoke at a press conference on the occasion of the first T20 to be held in Wellington on Friday and made key comments. He also showered compliments on Hardik Pandya, who will be the T20 captain in this series.
“It was an enjoyable trip for me. A golden opportunity to share my experience with the young players in the team. During the tour of Ireland, I felt that all these people in the Indian team are very talented players. But no matter how much talent you have, you have to practice constantly and improve your game. India has many players. India is lucky to have so many players to choose from,” he said. Talking about Hardik Pandya as the leader of the team.. “Hardika is a good leader. We all saw what he did against Gujarat Titans in IPL.
It is not uncommon for a franchise to lead the tournament in its first year and win the league that same year. He can do and achieve anything with his team. I spent a lot of time with him during the Ireland series. He is not only tactical but calm on the field. Must remain calm as a team leader in stressful situations. And the way he leads his team on the field is amazing.”
