The fourth match of the five-match T20 series between India and South Africa was played on Friday (June 17) in Rajkot. Team India won the match by 82 runs. With this win, he brought the series to a 2-2 draw. Hardik Pandya and Dinesh Karthik played an important role in the victory of the Indian team. After the match, both the players interviewed each other for BCCI TV.

During this, Hardik told how he made Gujarat Titans champion under his captaincy. Whose advice helped him the most in captaincy? Hardik said, “I always take advice from Mahi bhai (Mahendra Singh Dhoni). He calmly strategizes and refines the team. Early in his career, he told me never to think about the team’s score. Think about what the team needs. I am following the same thing.”

After this, Karthik asked Hardik what changes he made in the plan while playing for Gujarat and the Indian team. To this Hardik said, “I don’t change my game much. I keep my timing right and try to hit the ball coming into the zone.”

Proud of you: Hardik

During the conversation, Hardik also praised Karthik. He said, “I want to tell you that you are an inspiration to many players like us. I remember what you told me about your plan. You were not in the team and many people did not even see you in the team in future. I remember that conversation when you told me that my aim is to play for India again and make it to the World Cup squad. I am going to give my all for this and it is very inspiring to see you achieve this. Many people are going to learn new things. Very proud of you.”

‘Feeling safe in the team’

On the other hand, Dinesh Karthik said, “I feel very safe in this team. Everything didn’t go as planned in the last match, but today I went and played better. The credit for this goes to Rahul Dravid. With him there is peace in the team. The dressing room remains quiet. It is necessary to withstand the pressure. Everything is clean in the team and it creates an environment of safety.
