After the stunning win against England in the 3rd ODI, Pandya talked about his crucial partnership with Rishabh Pant, that proved to be the turning point of the game. He said:
“I felt really good with my performance. It’s always special to contribute to all departments. My game gave me a lot of confidence in the past. Rishabh’s inning was obviously very important for us. And the way he finished… we all know what kind of talent he has. And when it comes out, it looks very pleasing to the eyes. When he plays, your heartbeat goes up at the same part of the time you are in awe of the shots Rishabh plays,”
