He encouraged players to be more sincere in their post-match remarks. “I eagerly await the day when players speak candidly from the heart.

“We didn’t perform at our best today, and they simply outplayed us. It’s not the right moment to point fingers at individual players; everyone on the team is a professional and understands their responsibilities. What’s crucial is that we analyze our performance, learn from our mistakes, and work on rectifying them to ensure we don’t repeat them. It’s all about progressing forward.”

“Within the team, each of us needs to acknowledge our weaknesses and strive to improve individually. I’m not a fan of quick fixes; instead, I prefer to support my teammates and prioritize playing quality cricket. Our focus remains on adhering to our game plans and avoiding fundamental mistakes. Cricket is a straightforward game, and by keeping it simple, we can achieve success.”
