Gill said in a video of a conversation with captain Hardik Pandya posted on the BCCI (Indian Cricket Board) website: “The way I bat requires mental clarity.” And you especially gave me that kind of freedom today. You said: ‘I play as I play and there is no need to do anything extra’. I think it’s the little things that go a long way.
He said: “In Mitchell Santner’s last over I was in full swing and had made up my mind to play the big shot but was advised to hold back and take an aggressive approach against the other bowler as Santner bowled all the shot. Bowling ball well in the series. So strategically and technically this match was close to perfection for me.
Series man Hardik took four wickets in this match. When asked about this, Gill said: “To be honest, four wickets is part of the game, but I think if I’m not mistaken, I bowled at a speed of 145 (kmph) and at that speed it gave me joy and a smile can be watch. This is my last match (for the Indian team in the current season). After this I’m going to rest.” “Hardik will play his next game after two months. He said: “This is how I did my best today. I tried to bowl as fast as possible. We had a good start that made the job easier.
