Captain Rishi Dhawan was delighted for his workforce and for his State’s cricket as Himachal Pradesh defeated Tamil Nadu by 11 runs (VJD technique) to win the Vijay Hazare Trophy on Sunday.
“There’s a lot of effort behind this win,” Rishi informed broadcasters.
“HPCA gave us a lot of facilities to use; in the last 10 years, they’ve built great infrastructure and the cricketers have groomed very well. The hard work is visible and the players are performing well. So, that’s great to see,” he mentioned.
TN captain Vijay Shankar lauded HP for its wonderful efficiency. “I think the way they played was outstanding. Congrats to them.”
Shankar felt the truth that a number of possibilities to dismiss HP’s batters weren’t taken on the sector — TN dropped two catches and fumbled a run-out alternative — mattered within the remaining evaluation.
“It’s about picking wickets in the middle overs where we know we missed the trick and a couple of chances [weren’t taken]. These things matter in finals,” he mentioned.
