Hardik stunned cricket fans by revealing that team India was looking to bat first anyway as in bilateral games they want to prepare for harder situations and test teams in them. He said:

 "We were going to bat first. Yes this is a chasing ground but we want to put ourselves in more difficult situations generally in bilaterals. Anyone who comes here we will make sure we'll give them the confidence. Two debutants today - Gill and Mavi. Arshdeep was not available,"

Further, Hardik Pandya stated that leading the team is a special feeling as he is favorite to take over the team in the shortest format of the game on the permanent basis. Hardik has been promoted to India's vice-captain in ODI cricket too for the upcoming series against Sri Lanka. He said:

"Excited. Always been excited to play for the country, but obviously leading now makes it more special. Excited to see how this new bunch of guys express themselves,"
