India all-rounder Hardik Pandya credited captain Rohit Sharma for his four-wicket haul against England in the series decider at Manchester’s Old Trafford, saying that India’s skipper has been fantastic at managing his workload.
Pandya (4/24) and leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal’s (3/60) superb bowling effort helped India bowl out England for 259 in the series-deciding third and final ODI at Old Trafford in Manchester on Sunday.
“I had to bend my back a bit, change my plans and realise you need to use the short ball as a wicket-taking ball. I always fancy my bouncer. Livingstone likes to take the short ball on and that gives me goosebumps. He hit me for two sixes, but one wicket made a big difference. The body’s fine, the captain is fantastic at managing my workload. The chase is about intent, the wicket is pretty good to bat on. We’ll fancy our chances to chase it down,” Hardik told broadcasters during the innings break.
