Shardul Thakur: “I have no idea how it happened, but everyone would have assumed that we were having trouble at the moment if they had looked at the scorecard. Your subconscious, however, takes over. We work really hard in the nets, but you need higher level talents to do that as well. We can slog it out in the nets for a while. We have the option of range-hitting, and the coaching staff performs the throwdowns. Additionally, you are aware that batsmen always enjoy playing on certain types of pitches.
