Recently, Cricketer Hardik Pandya led Men in Blue to win its fourth T20I series under his captaincy after team India defeated New Zealand by a huge margin of 168 runs in the third and final T20I at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
Shubman Gill stole the show as he smashed 126 runs off just 63 balls and broke Virat Kohli’s record of the highest individual runs in the shortest format.
Moreover, Hardik Pandya was named the man of the series for his brilliant all-round performance. He batted well, bowled well, fielded well throughout the series, and earned the title.
It seems that Hardik Pandya has learned to rotate strikes during the innings and has stopped trying to hit too many boundaries.
During the post-match press presentation, Pandya said that he enjoys hitting sixes; however, he had to evolve so that the batsman at the other end and the team have the “assurance that he is there”. He further added that he has learned how to “accept and swallow pressure and make sure everything is calm”.
Hardik Pandya mentioned what MS Dhoni used to do for team India during the latter stages of the innings, he is trying to adapt to that role. He said that after MS Dhoni retired from international cricket, his responsibilities are now onto him as an Indian all-rounder, and he likes to play that way if the team is getting the results.
