Cricket match prediciton yesterday: Hardik: Tripathi let Sri Lanka ‘hunt the game’ with a power play goal.

Hardik Pandya admits Gujarat Titans coach Ashish Nehra has added ‘more value’ to his skills as captain

Hardik of his Pandia admits IPL’s Gujarat that his Titans coach Ashish Nehra made a “huge difference” in his role as captain.

When Hardik was named captain of the Titans ahead of his 2022 IPL, he led only once at senior level in his game in his 2017 tour with Australia. I did.

Since then, he has led his T20I side of India whenever Rohit Sharma has been sidelined.

“He never led in junior cricket,” he said. When I was U16, I was managing Baroda. After that, everyone said we should focus on cricket and we haven’t been leading since,” said Hardik after India won the decider in his T20I series against Sri Lanka in Rajkot on Saturday. said. “But what was very important from a Gujarat perspective was the type of coach I worked with. Ashish Nehra made a huge difference in my life. We may be two different personalities. Well, when it comes to cricket, our thoughts and ideas are very similar. “Being with him made my role as captain more valuable. I was always aware of the game and it was about gaining that confidence. It definitely helped me.”

Tripathi steals the show with a power play

Suryakumar Yadav was undefeated in his 51 pitches, he was undoubtedly the star of the game with 112 pitches, but the newcomer also impressed Rahul Tripathi.

After India scored a hit, Dilshan Madushanka picked up the momentum, bouncing with a new ball and sending out Ishan Kishan in the opening of the game. Meanwhile, Kasun Rajitha bowled a maiden to his Shubman Gill. However, Tripati only played his second T20I, negating 35 of 16 balls with the help of five fours and two sixes. He made sure India finished the power play 53-2 despite Gill having 17-14 balls.

“We all know what Surya did, but Rahul Tripathi also deserves a special mention,” Hardik said. “The intentions that he has shown are so natural to him and can change the game and the swing. When you see the ball do something in the first few overs, people outside, the next hitter. Even so, I thought there was something in the ticket gate. However, due to his intentions, the bowler changed lengths and suddenly the ball was stuck. Then they (Sri Lanka) seemed to be chasing the game.”

Hardik also addressed the team’s general batting philosophy. “It’s about intent. That’s what we talked about,” he said. “There may come a day when you do the same thing and get only 150 points [India is 228 out of 5]. But it is the intention that counts. Not always aggressive when attacking. Look for boundaries and if it’s a good ball, respect it, but if you go for it first, think defensively. Then, even if there is a bad ball, it can not be cleaned up.

Such a ticket gate does not change much. When the ball got a little old, it suited hitters. But on tricky wickets, intention and aggression become more important. If you can do the same with tricky wickets, the bowler may feel the need to try something different, but if you’re playing normal, just bowl your normal runs and watch the game because it makes a big difference. seen overall. ”
