During a chat with the media after the game, Hardik talked about what he had endured, how he fought back and what was going through his mind when he was bowling the last over. “I believe it is important to be graceful in victory and in defeat, and I tried to maintain that. Only thing I want to tell the fans is that they, too, should learn to be graceful, at times they should also find better ways to express themselves,” said Hardik.
