The Indian men’s team stand-in captain, Hardik Pandya, expressed dissatisfaction with the West Indies Cricket Board’s preparations during India’s tour. He praised the Brian Cricket Stadium in Tarouba. He demanded West Indies Cricket Board address these shortcomings and ensure adequate travel and task management during the next visit. The Indian team also objected to the BCCI about the late-night flight delay, leaving them exhausted before the opening ODI. Starting Thursday, Hardik will lead India in the five-match T20I tournament against the West Indies.
Accusing the West Indies cricket board of failing to make “basic arrangements,” Hardik Pandya
The Indian cricket team complained to the BCCI about their late-night flight from Trinidad to Barbados getting delayed by nearly four hours, leaving them exhausted before the opening ODI of the series.
Indian Captions and The Post-Match Presentation
The concluding ODI of the tournament and the post-match Indian skippers’ speeches seemed to go well together. The stand-in captain of the men’s team, Hardik Pandya, questioned the preparations provided by the West Indies Cricket Board throughout the tour following women’s squad captain Harmnapreet Kaur faced harsh criticism and received a two-match suspension for her conduct during the third ODI against Bangladesh and her remarks about the umpires during the post-match presentation.
In back-to-back contests, Hardik took charge of the Indian team
To offer better chances to newcomers like Sanju Samson and Ruturaj Gaikwad, regular skipper Rohit Sharma and former skipper Virat Kohli took a break for a second game in consecutive games. During the post-match presentation ceremony, Daren Ganga, a well-known commentator, and former West Indies opener, questioned Hardik about the amenities at the Brian Cricket Stadium in Tarouba, which organized its first ODI.
Hardik Pandya won’t conceal his displeasure
Hardik Pandya didn’t try to hide his dissatisfaction with the travel plans or additional arrangements after India crushed West Indies by 200 runs in the third ODI to claim the three-match series 2-1. While praising the arena and describing it as “one of the nicest” locations, Hardik quickly shifted the conversation to the West Indies Cricket Board’s failings during India’s tour. Hardik continued to lament the lack of “necessities” and demanded that the hosts take concern of that into the future.
It’s time for the West Indies board to pay attention
“We had games on some better fields than this one. The next time we visit the West Indies, things might be better. It includes many things, from traveling to handling different tasks. I believe West Indies Cricket must take notice of it and ensure that when a squad travels. We rarely ask for luxury, but we do require certain essentials to get met. After that, it was great to be here and play some decent cricket,” Hardik Pandya said on Tuesday.
