Pandya takes responsibility for defeat against Delhi; On Shami’s bowling, he said, ‘I feel sad…’
On Tuesday (May 2), IPL 2023 witnessed a very exciting match. In this match played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, the Gujarat Titans team, which is at the top of the points table, vs. Against Delhi Capitals, who are at the bottom of the points table. In this match between Gujarat and Delhi team, the defending champions had to face a close defeat. Delhi beat Gujarat by 5 runs. After losing the match, captain Hardik Pandya has made a big statement.
What did Hardik Pandya say?
Gujarat Titans captain Hardik Pandya took responsibility for losing the match against Delhi Capitals. He said, “We could have passed the challenge of 129 on any given day. Only a few wickets were lost and Rahul Tewatia finally brought the team back into the match. I finally gave it my all, but it just couldn’t happen. We were trying to score big runs in the middle few overs, but it was not possible. It was new for Abhinav too and it depended on how I could not finish the match. It is my responsibility that I could not finish the match. I should have been able to win.”
‘Consecutive wickets lost’
Speaking further, Hardik said, “The pitch was good, it was the pressure of the pitch. He bowled really well. Finally Rahul got us into the match, otherwise he was way ahead. We lost this match because I couldn’t catch the rhythm.”
Mohammed Shami, who bowled 4 overs and took 4 wickets for 11 runs, was honored with the man of the match award. Talking about him, Pandya said, “I felt sorry for him, if you bowl like that and restrict the team to 129 (130) runs, still not winning the match, the batsmen let it down.”
“I don’t think the pitch did much, but all credit goes to him. Now the game is still left. We will take lessons from this match and move forward. These things keep happening. That is the beauty of IPL. “We are at the top of the points table so far, but we need to play better cricket,” Pandya added.
The @gujarat_titans didn’t end up on the winning side but it was @MdShami11 who received the Player of the Match award for his splendid four-wicket haul 👏🏻👏🏻
