It’s amazing that the boys didn’t lose their confidence. Iyer, Sanju, Axar, and even Avesh, who entered the game and scored those 11 significant runs, were all outstanding. They may perform on a vast stage because of the IPL. I thought we bowled well “Shikhar Dhawan stated this during a post-game presentation.
“They had a successful start. Pooran batted well, as did Hope. We believed that if they could achieve it, then we could too. We took our time getting going. Shubman had solid at-bats. The Iyer-Samson collaboration had a significant impact. There was a shortage. Yet these things do occur. Boys are educated, “Added he.
The captain also praised opposing batsman Shai Hope for hitting a century in his 100th ODI match.
