The kind of love and support I have received is only from the point of view of the Indian team. Yes, long term, short term, I want to win the World Cup no matter what, “said Hardik.
Talking about his first captaincy win, he said: “Obviously, it will be a little bit special because I have won it as a captain. The four wins I have won before are just as special. IPL Winning is always special. I consider myself very lucky to have played five finals and won the trophy five times. Obviously, this will leave a legacy because we are a new franchise, playing for the first time. And we’re the champions in the first season, but the four wins I’ve won before that were just as special.
