Gujarat Titans have shown brilliant teamwork this season, which was one of the main reasons for their success in the current edition of the IPL.

“Hardik to me has been pretty simple. The last game, he came to me and said, ‘Left-hander is batting, do you want me to tell you anything, or do you know?’ I said, ‘I know, I’ll take care’. I find Hardik has a very strong personality. He carries himself with a lot of confidence and has confidence in his players as well. Not trying to impose himself on all the players. Give them their space, their freedom, and ‘you express yourselves. If something goes wrong, I’ll be there. That’s how I’ve seen Hardik,” Kishore said.

He also showered praises for the team’s head coach, Ashish Nehra.

“It’s been amazing being here, with Ashu pa and Hardik. Ashu pa has made sure that everybody feels secure in this team. Even when I was playing in the 12th game of the season, I still felt like I needed to contribute something to the team. I didn’t feel like I’d been left out or anything like that. We’ve all felt so secure and a lot of credit needs to be given to both of them for making the environment like that,” Kishore added.

He further said that Pandya has a strong personality and he never imposes his will upon others.

The 25-year-old player made his debut against Lucknow Super Giants and picked up two wickets while conceding only 7 runs. He has picked up three wickets in the three matches he has played, with an economy rate of 5.80 runs per over.
