After the defeat, Captain Hardik expressed disappointment over the team’s performance, said- It is a young team but…’
Hardik Pandya’s statement after losing the first T20 match: For the Indian team, the beginning of the 5-match T20 series against the West Indies could not be seen better. Team India had to face defeat against West Indies by 4 runs in the first match. Chasing the target of 150 runs, Team India was chasing the target very well at one time, but due to sudden loss of quick wickets, the team lost its grip in the match. Disappointed with this defeat, Indian captain Hardik Pandya talked about taking a lesson.
After the defeat in the first T20 match, Hardik Pandya said that at one time in the match we were chasing the target very well, but we made some mistakes and had to bear the brunt of it. This is a young team and mistakes can happen. We need to learn from this. There are still 4 matches left in the series. If you lose wickets then it becomes difficult for you to achieve the target. Some big hits could definitely turn the match. We lost a few wickets early which cost us.
Hardik further said in his statement that we wanted to give a chance to 2 wrist spin bowlers in this match. Mukesh bowled very well in this match and now he has made his debut in all the three formats. Tilak also started very well and showed aggressive play in his very first match. I saw a lot of confidence in him, which can be considered very good for the Indian team.
