You Have to Take Responsibility – Manish Pandey After Captain’s Performance Against TN

Karnataka captain Manish Pandey led by example with the bat and in the field and said it was important to take responsibility, especially if they were to continue their domination on the domestic circuit.

Karnataka and Tamil Nadu played out a cliffhanger of a final before Pandey’s side retained the trophy by the smallest of margins – 1 run.

"We had won it last year, but victory was sweeter this time. The way the boys played whole tournament was unbelievable. I can't thank anyone individually, everyone put in so much effort," Pandey said in the post match presentation.

“Hopefully there is more to come.”

The Karnataka captain was instrumental in his side’s batting performance as they posted 180/5 in their overs with Pandey himself remaining unbeaten on 60, after the likes of KL Rahul, Devdutt Padikkal and Mayank Agarwal failed to get going ahead of him.

Pandey was ever present in the field as well, as he not only made the right calls but also helped his side fight back with excellent fielding by affecting three dismissals, including those of Vijay Shankar and Baba Aparajith, who seemed set to take the game away.

“When everybody tells me that I am the best fielder in the team, you have to take the responsibility. I have taken it upon me to field there (long-on) and all the practice comes helpful in a situation like this and that run-out probably changed the game.”

On the wrong end of the result on the day, the experienced Dinesh Karthik said that he and the team would look to carry forward the white-ball form to the Ranji trophy.

"Disappointed, but very proud of the boys today. The team showed what they were capable of throughout the tournament. And at the start of the year, if you told me we'd be in two white-ball finals, I'd have taken it. We need to take this confidence into the Ranji Trophy," Karthik explained.
