On Sunday, Hardik Pandya’s illustrious stint as the Men in Blue’s T20I captain in the bilateral series came to an end. After the West Indies, led by Romario Shepherd, outplayed India in the fifth match at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, the great all-rounder dropped his first T20I series as captain. In Florida, the hosts, the West Indies, ended India’s comeback attempt by defeating them by eight wickets to win the five-match series 3-2.
By defeating the West Indies in back-to-back games, Hardik’s Team India recovered in the series. The West Indies were able to stymie India’s attempt to win the series after falling behind due of the batting disaster class of the Indian hitters. India scored less than par in the 20-over match as a result of Pandya’s poor selection to bat first on a sluggish wicket.
“As you can see, we were defeated after 10 overs. Pandya, who struck 14 off 18 balls in the deciding T20I series match, remarked that he had been unable to capitalize since arriving and had taken his time before failing to complete. In the game that decided the series, the Indian middle order also had trouble scoring runs.
“I think it’s important for us as a group to push ourselves. These are the games where we must learn, after all. We have decided as a group that we will always choose the difficult path. In retrospect, one series here or there doesn’t matter as much as the dedication to the end result.
“Occasionally, losing is good”
Premier batsman Suryakumar Yadav spearheaded India’s comeback in the series-deciding match against the West Indies by smashing a stunning half-century, while rookie Tilak Varma hit 27 off 18 balls. India reached 165/9 in 20 overs thanks to Suryakumar’s quick-fire 61 from 45 balls. “It’s a far trip. The ODI World Cup is approaching. And occasionally, losing is beneficial. You gain a lot of knowledge. The boys deserve a special mention as well. Their character was admirable. We’ll make sure we learn from both successes and failures because they are all a part of the process, Pandya said.
Every young person who comes through has faith.
In response, Brandon King scored an unbeaten 85 to lead the West Indies to an 8-wicket victory over India in the fifth T20I. The West Indies reached their target with two overs remaining thanks to King’s outstanding unbeaten 85 and Pooran’s stunning 47. In the just finished T20I series, Pandya’s detractors again questioned his bowling selections. In the fifth T20I, the outstanding all-arounder failed to secure a wicket and the pacer failed to bowl his prescribed number of overs.
“I don’t have many plans; it’s just how I feel at the moment. Pandya said, “Whatever my intuition tells me to do in a scenario, I do. The forthcoming T20I series against Ireland won’t feature the Indian all-rounder. The second-string Indian team will be led by pace ace Jasprit Bumrah during his comeback series in his place. “They have heart. In terms of international cricket, that is a crucial factor. Every young person who comes through has faith. I see that a lot more frequently today. Well done for coming forward and accepting accountability. As a captain, I couldn’t be happier,” Pandya said.
