Hell pitch for T20… Gambhir furious at Hardik, told this terrible mistake of captaincy
He said- This decision of Hardik has surprised the most. I cannot answer this question. Chahal is your number 1 spinner in T20 format. He bowled two overs and picked up the crucial wicket of Finn Allen in the process. The remaining two overs should have been used as well. Please tell that after the match, Hardik Pandya had told the pitch was not fit to play T20. After this, questions are being raised on the curator of Bharat Ratna Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow.
Although Gambhir agreed that young players like Arshdeep Singh and Shivam Mavi should be given a chance, he also believed that if Chahal had completed his quota of overs, New Zealand would have been bowled out for 80 or 85. go. On the other hand, Hardik preferred to bowl 4 overs to Deepak Hooda instead of Chahal, which is surprising.

He said- Yes, you want to give more chances to young Arshdeep Singh or Shivam Mavi, but then you could have got Chahal in the last or before the full 4 overs. So I think he missed the strategy. He could have got New Zealand out even earlier. The score can be 80 or even 85. Big surprise asking Hooda to bowl four overs but not Chahal.
