Following the match, Hardik Pandya, reflecting on his team’s defeat, commended Dhoni not only for his batting heroics but also for his invaluable presence behind the stumps. Despite relinquishing the captaincy, Dhoni continues to guide and advise the team’s current skipper, Ruturaj Gaikwad, with his strategic insights during the game.
