Asked if he would like to stay for the 4-match Test series starting on December 17, Pandya said, “This is a different type of competition, I think I should be, I mean I have no problem but Ultimately, the decision is on management. So yes, I don’t think I can say much about it.
Pandya arrived in Australia after playing an important role in helping Mumbai Indians win the title in IPL 2020. Indian all-rounder Pandya said that during the lockdown caused by the corona virus, he worked on mastering the finish of the match at the time of need.
Pandya played an aggressive innings of 42 off 22 balls and played a key role in India’s 6 wicket victory in the second T20 International against Australia. With his help, the visiting team scored 14 runs in the last over to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match T20 series.
Pandya said in the press conference after the match, ‘During lockdown I wanted to concentrate on finishing the match at the time of need. It doesn’t matter whether I score more runs or not. This all-rounder was not new to the conditions made in the SCG on Sunday, he won the last few matches in some of the same conditions and suffered defeat in some.
He said, ‘I have been in such situations many times and I learned from my mistakes. I play with confidence and inspire myself and do not become too confident. I always remember the time when we chased big scores and it helps. Pandya hit 2 sixes off debutant fast bowler Daniel Sams, which helped India win with 2 balls to spare.
He said, ‘Instead of paying attention to what they do during the match, I pay attention to what I can do. It was a matter of two big shots and it happened today. I always support myself. These are situations in which I have always played. Whatever the team needs, I always try to do it. This is a very easy thing. I want to play by looking at the scoreboard so that I can know which bowler to target.
