“If you have a long batting line-up, you have to play like that. Yes, we want to see him bat long, we want to see him bat for 10-12 overs because then you have confidence. 10 -In 12 overs, the way India bats is a challenge of 120. But because he is starting India to fly and because he has 5,6,7 he Can take the game. Look at the way Hardik Pandya came in today. Toward the end. With that kind of batting order, you can take chances,” Sunil Gavaskar said on Star Sports.
“Obviously, captaining a team is always a big plus for the opposition. It’s like holding the head of a snake as they say. That’s why if you’re an opening batsman, the bowlers call you the captain. To demoralize the team. But this team has a lot of class players.”
