After an unbeaten 84 in the 4th T20I, Yashasvi Jaiswal gives a special mention to Captain Hardik Pandya

Hardik Pandya, as the captain, had his fair share of criticism after team India lost their first T20 matches against the West Indies, but the team bounced back to their winning ways after winning the next two matches. Yashasvi Jaiswal, who scored an unbeaten 84 in the four T20 matches against the West Indies, had special praise for Captain Hardik while thanking him for the support he has given Yashasvi since being integrated into the team.
In the post-match presentation, Yashasvi Jaiswal said, "It is not easy; I am happy to go out there and express myself. I should thank Hardik Bhai and all the support staff for backing me. That has had such an impact on my mind. I try to play according to what the team needs and how I can express myself towards the plan. I try to score quickly, play as many shots as I can on the power play, and put my team in nice shape. Reading the wicket, reading the situation, how I can take the game deep—everything is important. My intent is always to score runs."
Yashasvi was also sad that he had played a lot of balls against Jason Holder and Obed McCoy in the IPL, which helped me to read them. While further saying that, "The partnership with Shubman Gill was really amazing in the way we were talking and the way we were taking singles and understanding each other. He batted really well. The way he was rotating the strike, it was really important to build the partnership. I want to thank everyone for coming here and supporting us in this heat. Thank you so much."
India has levelled the series at 2-2 with this win, with one more game to go, which will be played on Sunday.
