Daniel Sams also discussed MI’s season this year, stating that they were not up to par in terms of tournament performance.
“Obviously, there were some problems, some nice times around, and we haven’t exactly performed as well as we would have liked, but we are looking forward to next year,” Sams added.
“I believe a lot of us in this group have had to learn and deal with a lot of stuff because of how we’ve done,” he continued. “I think it’s not the most ideal season, but I think it’s a vital season for myself and everyone to become better cricketers, better players.”
The fast bowler went on to say that he is proud of himself for bouncing back in difficult situations, and he also emphasized mental toughness as an essential factor.
“Obviously, there were some challenges, some nice times around, and we haven’t exactly performed as well as we would have liked, but we are looking forward to next year.”
“We speak a lot about skills and execution and whatnot, but I think the mental skills are the one thing that has improved for me.” “I think this tournament has really helped me develop another layer on top of it, or maybe more than one layer,” Sams added.
“Just going through terrible performances and seeing how you bounce back, how you think about yourself, and what you think about when you go into the next game are all things I’m trying to solve with the aid of this tournament. Working on myself a little and then returning to perform and have an impact on the team is perhaps one of the proudest moments of my career, especially in such a high-pressure atmosphere as the TATA IPL “He went on to say.
