Captain Dhawan gave this statement after the victory
After winning the first T20, Indian captain Shikhar Dhawan said that I thought we scored 10-15 runs short but still it was a good score. I think we played really well after losing the initial wicket. We knew it was a matter of one or two boundaries and we could pick up the pace. Scoring 50 runs in the powerplay was great. I think there is only 5% improvement scope left. Dhawan encouraged Prithvi Shaw to be dismissed for zero in the debut match. He said that Shaw will return with a strong. The captain heaped praise on Suryakumar Yadav (50 runs in 34 balls) for his brilliant batting.
‘Suryakumar Yadav is a great player’
Dhawan said that Suryakumar Yadav is a great player. We really enjoy watching him bat. He also took the pressure off me while batting. It is amazing to see the maturity with which he plays the shot. At the same time, Dhawan also praised the spinner. He said he played well. We knew our spinners would do their job on that wicket. Even Varun Chakraborty, who played his first match, did well and got a wicket. His bowling is difficult to understand. I am so happy for her. Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled well.
