Indian captain Virat Kohli has credited Shardul Thakur with the Man of the Match and Bhuvneshwar Kumar for not getting the Man of the Series award while crediting the thrilling seven-run win against England in the third and final ODI. Apart from scoring 30 runs, Shardul also took four wickets while Bhuvneshwar bowled well throughout the series. Sam Karen, who scored an unbeaten 95 for England, has been named Man of the Match and Johnny Bairstow as Man of the Series.
Virat Kohli said after India’s seven-run win in the third match that matches are exciting when the two top teams play together. Sam played a great innings. Our bowlers, however, took wickets and Hardik (Pandya) and Nattu (Natarajan) bowled well in the end. We missed the catches but it was disappointing but we finally managed to win.
Tour experience will work in World Cup: Butler
Virat said that I am surprised that Shardul was not chosen Man of the Match and Bhuvi was not Man of the Series. The most credit goes to the bowlers who bowled well under adversity. England acting captain Jose Butler said the experience of the tour would be useful in the World Cup. In addition to the T20 World Cup this year, India will also host the ODI World Cup in 2023.
Butler said – Excellent match, work will come forward
Butler said that the best match. Both teams made some mistakes but also played excellent cricket. We saw a great innings from Karen which brought us closer to the goal but congratulations to India for this victory. He said that in this tour we learned a lot as a team and saw that many players are now ready to carry the responsibility. We have to play the World Cup further under these conditions and then we will get the benefit.
