Hardik Pandya and Dinesh Karthik were the most important players in the fourth Twenty20 International match between India and South Africa. The match took place at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot. Pandya and Karthik were able to pull their side out of misery and help the team post a defendable total of 170 runs. Pandya said that the guidance given to him by MS Dhoni to concentrate on the needs of the team throughout the game assisted him in scoring.
The fourth Twenty20 International (T20I) match between India and South Africa came to an exciting conclusion with the hosts claiming a big win by 82 runs to tie the series at 2-2. After the match, Pandya and Karthik, who both participated in the contest and were pivotal in India’s win, engaged in a chat in which they disclosed quite a few details regarding their performance in the match.
What did Hardik Pandya say about MS Dhoni?
“When I was just starting, I approached Mahi Bhai with a query. When I asked him how he deals with pressure, he offered me some pretty straightforward advise, which was to “stop worrying about your individual score and start thinking about what your team needs.” When I asked him how he does this, he laughed. From a very early age, the lesson has lingered in my head and helped me become the sort of player I am today,” Pandya stated in a video by BCCI.
Hardik Pandya was selected for the Twenty20 International squad after leading the Gujarat Titans to victory in the Indian Premier League 2022 while serving as the team’s captain. The unexpected departure of KL Rahul resulted in Rishabh Pant being given the captaincy responsibilities, and Pandya was picked to serve as his deputy. Pandya will take over as captain of the Indian team for the Twenty20 Internationals against Ireland since Pant will be departing after the home series to go on tour in England.
