Hardik Pandya’s stunning captaincy rules

On Wednesday, India defeated New Zealand 2-1 in the third Twenty20 International at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Chasing a 235-run target, New Zealand was bowled out for 66 in 12.1 overs, allowing the hosts to win the final by 168 runs. Hardik Pandya was in superb form, taking four wickets in four overs while allowing only 16 runs. Meanwhile, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik, and Shivam Mavi all took two wickets.

India captain Hardik won the toss and chose to bat first. Shubman Gill’s undefeated 126-run knockoff 63 balls helped the hosts reach 234 for four in 20 overs. Hardik was also on form, scoring 30 runs off 17 balls, including four fours and a maximum.

Hardik got the Player of the Series award following the game for his outstanding performances throughout the series. In the first T20I, India’s captain scored 21 runs off 20 balls, allowing New Zealand to win by 21 runs. Meanwhile, in the second T20I, Hardik scored 15 runs off 20 balls, including a four, while also being dismissed. Hardik praised his colleagues and disclosed his “basic leadership rule” after collecting the honor. Captain Hardik Pandya stated that he usually makes judgments on the field based on his gut instinct.

“In my captaincy, I look to keep it simple and back my gut”- Hardik said.

“I have a simple rule – if I go down, I will go down on my terms.”- further he added.

Gill praised Hardik for his captaincy after collecting the player of the match award. Hardik Pandya looked perplexed after being awarded Player of the Series after India won the third and final T20I against New Zealand in Ahmedabad, as well as the series. He hadn’t done anything spectacular in the three-match series, which India won 2-1, but he made vital contributions in every match, particularly as captain and powerplay bowler. It was no surprise that Hardik dedicated the prize to the youthful squad that came back from a 0-1 deficit to win two consecutive matches and win the series. Hardik has now captained India in four T20I series, all of which he has won.

He is a player’s captain. He declared to the public that if the team fails under his leadership, he wants to ensure that it is due to his actions, and he is willing to face the blame.
