We have huge trust in everyone in our team. Have lost plenty of finals in my career unfortunately. It has been a fantastic tournament.
Hardik Pandya, Player of the Match: Wanted to show at the right time what I’ve worked hard for. I saved the best for the last.

It is always going to be close to my heart.
