It was just an off day, Gill said regarding Hardik’s loss to the Delhi Capitals

Particularly in the T20 format, he has a repertoire for ending the game by clearing the fence. He has a history of doing it repeatedly over the past ten years, particularly in the Indian Premier League.

However, despite having the highest individual score of the evening on Tuesday, Hardik Pandya fell short on all counts. Gujarat Titans’ total of 130 for eight fell five runs short of Delhi Capitals’ total thanks to his unbroken effort of 59 off 53 balls. It was just an off day, Gill said regarding Hardik’s loss to the Delhi Capitals

Hardik’s innings resembled K.L. Rahul’s, the captain of the Lucknow Super Giants, who recently faced the Gujarat Titans on a difficult Lucknow surface. It’s true that, unlike LSG, the Titans had lost early wickets, but once Hardik had taken the chase to a deep point, it was up to him to pick up the pace and win the match.

Hardik just couldn’t seem to play the big shots for some reason. It meant that, as a result of his innings, he became a mountain without a peak. Shubman Gill, a crucial batsman for the Gujarat Titans, made every effort to bat for his skipper, while Hardik was honest enough to admit defeat.

Shubman said that everyone inevitably has bad days as players and batsmen and that, simply put, it was one of those off days. Further, he said that, despite the fact that he relied on himself to score those runs, Delhi deserves praise for their excellent late-inning yorkers.

Shubman also said that when there is too much pressure in a low-scoring game, especially after a bad start, one aims to take it deep and save it for the last over. He added that despite being a difficult wicket, it was playable.

The Titans will be hoping that their skipper returns to his big-hitting ways soon because they have two more games this week.
