Post-match reactions: who said what

After this shameful defeat, Gill took responsibility like a responsible captain, he said: “I blame myself & some other batters for some very ‘average batting’ ”. He didn’t blame the pitch at all.

“Our batting performance was very average,” Gill said at the post-match presentation. “I think the wicket was alright, to be honest. If you see our dismissals, the ball I got out to had nothing to do with the pitch. Even the way Wriddhi [Wriddhiman Saha] bhai got out had nothing to do with the pitch, and Sai [Sudharsan] got run out. So I don’t think it had anything to do with the pitch. Just a bad batting performance and poor shot selection, I would say.”

Speaking after the win against GT, Pant said, “Lots of things to be pleased about. We talked about the champion thought process and our team showed today that we can play like that and really happy to see that. [on the bowling] Definitely one of the best, it’s early on in the tournament, can’t say much as we can improve individually. The only thought process before coming on to the field was coming in a better way, that’s the only thought when I was going through my rehab.”

“The only conversation we had before the chase was – let’s get it as early as possible, we lost a few run-rate points earlier and we covered it up. We just love being in Ahmedabad, we love the stadium, and the vibe here, and looking forward to playing more matches here. We just want to enjoy our win, one at a time, and move forward learning from it,” he added.

Final words: 

Shubman looks quite mature as a captain and we believe that he will take enough measures to make a comeback. Stay connected with to get all the sports updates on time.
