At the same time, he has also lashed out at many players. Let’s know about it.
Shikhar Dhawan said this
Indian captain Shikhar Dhawan said at the award ceremony after the match, ‘We were feeling good with our score. In the first 15 overs, the ball of the fast bowlers was swinging. This ground is different from other grounds. We bowled more ‘short of length’ balls today, due to which it was easier for Latham to play big shots. We also spoiled the fielding.
tom snatched the match
Speaking further, Shikhar Dhawan said, ‘Tom Latham took advantage of our shot bowling and took the match away from our grip. He turned the match towards himself by hitting four boundaries (five) in 40 overs. Before this over, we were in the match. The 40th over of New Zealand’s innings was bowled by Shardul Thakur. From here the trend of the match changed.

Indian captain Shikhar Dhawan said, ‘We have to work on our strategy and make sure that we do not let the batsmen play on their strength. This is a young team and I am proud of my team.
