Star Indian Player Reveals Success Mantra behind T20I Series Win

The Men in Blue led by the iconic Virat Kohli won the three-match T20I series against England by winning the final game by 7 wickets.

Cricket news: The player ended the series as the leading wicket-taker

The series win was a historic one as this was India’s first ever T20I series win on English soil and sixth consecutive T20I series victory.

India won the final game by chasing down a target of 199 with an over to spare, thanks to an absolute effortless and stunning century from opener Rohit Sharma.

The openers of England started the game on a positive note by hitting all around the ground and scoring 72 runs in the first six overs of the powerplay.

But they soon lost the momentum and were restricted to under 200, thanks to Hardik Pandya’s bowling, who took four wickets.

Later during the chase skipper Virat Kohli and all-rounder Hardik Pandya contributed through some valuable cameos and helped Rohit to secure the target.

Pandya later revealed that it was the basic idea of enjoying the game and not stressing about what will happen, helps the whole team to achieve positive result.

He also said that in modern cricket, one needs to enjoy the game, and also praised the support staffs for their guiding roles and for giving the players confidence enough to express freely on the ground.

“We are just enjoying the game rather than thinking about what has got to happen. We are just playing our best cricket and when you do that you end up doing well. We have a fantastic supporting staff and leaders who give us immense confidence to go and express ourselves,” said Pandya in the post-match press conference after the final T20I game.

The all-rounder became the leading wicket-taker of the series with six wickets to his name and also contributed with his bat whenever his team needed him. He also spoke about his shortcomings and said that he needs to improve.

“I am always learning the game and making sure I am always learning from my mistakes in every game I play in,” he added. Hardik got smacked for 22 runs in his first over by the England opener Jason Roy who looked to be in top form in the game. However, the 24-year old all-rounder came back strongly in his next spell to pick up his career-best T20I figures (4/38), which also turned out to be a decisive point in the game.

“When I went for 22 in an over I thought the T20 is a funny format and the only thing to do was to come back and bowl my best balls. Virat Kohli (captain) asked me and I told him I was okay – if you come and take wickets on this type of wicket and ground it will stop the runs. I just had to make sure I kept it simple,” concluded the Indian all-rounder.
