Following India’s disheartening loss in the semi-final of the Twenty20 World Cup a week ago, former England batsman Michael Vaughan made some pointed comments about the country in his column for the Telegraph. Vaughan had argued that India had not accomplished anything noteworthy since they took home the ODI World Cup in their native country in 2011. In addition to that, he stated that the Indian side was the worst performing white-ball team in the annals of cricket history. Hardik Pandya, an all-rounder for India, provided an appropriate answer after hearing the statements made by Vaughan.
Hardik Pandya, who will head the team during the next white-ball tour of New Zealand, claimed that they don’t need to prove anything to anyone, despite the fact that they have hinted that there is a lot of space for growth.
“When things don’t go well for you, it’s only natural that people will have opinions, and we respect their opinions. I get that different people look at things from different angles.
Due to the fact that we have reached the international level, I do not believe that we have anything to prove to anyone. Because it’s a sport, you have to keep working to get better, and eventually, the result that should have happened will have happened.
There are some aspects that we need to improve, and going forward, we will make the necessary corrections and continue to work on it “Hardik revealed this information to the media in Wellington.
Beginning on Friday, November 18, India will play the first of three Twenty20 Internationals followed by the same number of One-Day Internationals at the Sky Stadium in Wellington.
In the T20 World Cup semi-finals, India and New Zealand were both forced to experience the heartbreak of losing.
India’s run was stopped by the eventual winners, England, while New Zealand’s was halted by a defeat at the hands of Pakistan.
