Rishabh Pant, who is captaining India for the first time in international cricket, had a lot of positivity, especially in the bouncebackability of the hosts.

After the match, Pant said, “It can be a little disappointing, but there are a lot of positives, especially the way the whole team showed character for us from 0-2 down after the series, that was a huge positive.”

Pant reiterated India’s new mindset playing T20I cricket, where batsmen would hit the ball harder than word, and is bent on giving his best as a captain as well as a middle-order batsman.

I just give my 100% as a player and captain I can think of giving.” It is for you guys to decide how I am performing as a player and captain, I can focus on giving my 100% every time I go on the field and keep improving. ,

Pant could not win the toss even once in the series, which did not matter to him. But the youngster’s eyes are now set on the Edgbaston Test between July 1-5 and his better performance with the bat.

“I think it’s the first time I’ve lost so many tosses at the same time, but it’s not in my control, so I’m not thinking much about it. From the team’s point of view, it’s about winning now.” I am in the last Test match in England, and from a personal point of view I would like to contribute more to help my team win.”

“Very disappointed that we couldn’t get a full game. It would have been an exciting end to an exciting tour, but we can’t control the weather. I think if you tried the way we played the first few games, some combination.”

“We are a work in progress, and we are trying different combinations to see how we shape up ahead of the World Cup. It is a strong Indian organization that we came up against, so we will not take anything for granted. wanted.”
