It is known that India defeated New Zealand by 168 runs in the third and decisive match in Ahmedabad and won the three-match T20I series 2-1. In this match, Shubman Gill was unbeaten with 126 runs off 68 balls. At the same time, in bowling, Hardik gave 16 runs in 4 overs and took 4 wickets. Batting first, India made a huge score of 234 runs. In reply, the Kiwi team collapsed for 66 runs.
Hardik Pandya not only bowled wonders, but earlier he scored 30 off 17 balls for the team. Meanwhile, in this match, Dhoni came to bat at number five. In the post-match press conference, Hardik said, “I have no problem playing the role of Mahi (Dhoni). At that time, I was young and surrounded him. But, ever since he left, I suddenly had a lot of responsibility. I don’t mind. We are getting results,” he said.
Pandya as Dhoni
Like former Indian captain MS Dhoni, Hardik said that he has to change his game depending on the team’s needs. Pandya said, “I always enjoy hitting sixes. But, I need to make some changes in my game. I believe in partnership. “I want to give some reassurance to my partner and my team that I am there.”
Hardik said, I learned how to deal with pressure, how to get out of it and how to make sure everything goes right. For this I need to reduce my strike rate. New roles have to be played. I am ready for it. I want to bowl with a new ball. He said that the bowlers play that tough role even when they are under pressure.
