Hardik Pandya’s irresponsible comment post WI series loss draws criticism


The Caribbean team secured victory in the initial two T20Is, establishing a 2-0 advantage in the series. However, the Indian team managed to stage a comeback by winning consecutive matches. The fifth and decisive T20I showdown between these two nations generated significant anticipation in Florida.

The West Indies emerged victorious in this thrilling encounter, securing the T20I series triumph against India. In their batting effort, Team India set a target of 165/9 in 20 overs. Suryakumar Yadav was the leading scorer with 61 runs off 45 balls (comprising 4 boundaries and 3 sixes), achieving a strike rate of 135.56.

In contrast, Romario Shepherd stood out as the standout bowler for the West Indies, claiming impressive figures of 4/31 in his allotted 4 overs. After losing Kyle Mayers early on with just 10 runs, the West Indies faced a challenging situation.

Nonetheless, the West Indies team demonstrated remarkable resilience through the partnership of Brandon King and Nicholas Pooran, amassing a crucial 105-run stand for the second wicket. Pooran contributed 47 runs (including 1 boundary and 4 sixes) before his departure.

The West Indies achieved victory with 2 overs to spare and 8 wickets in hand. Brandon King led the scoring with an unbeaten 85 runs from 55 deliveries, featuring 5 boundaries and 6 maximums. While the Indian team had enjoyed substantial success in bilateral tournaments for several years, the West Indies managed to outplay them this time and emerged triumphant in the five-match T20I series.

Both sides took turns in outsmarting each other, culminating in a hard-fought battle. Ultimately, the West Indies proved to be a formidable opponent, securing a 3-2 series victory – their first bilateral series win against India since 2016.

Following the match, India’s T20I captain, Hardik Pandya, faced criticism for his seemingly careless comment during the post-match presentation. The captain’s statement, “Losing is good sometimes, it teaches you,” provoked strong reactions from netizens, who launched a scathing attack on Hardik Pandya.
