Richards wished the Men in Blue luck for the rest of the competition as he handed Suryakumar the medal. In addition, he expressed his happiness at seeing Rishabh Pant return to the cricket field following his horrific car accident.

Oh, first of all, let me say Well done, guys. Well done today. Going all the way. Let’s go. Well done. What can I say to a team that is already so powerful? Man, you know, you have a good thing going here. I can only say this, if the guys in maroon don’t get it done, I’ll be backing you. Is that OK? That sounds reasonable enough as a Caribbean person, but really good to see what you guys have here,” Richards said.

Pant, it’s great to see you back, man, after what you have been through, we would have missed that great talent and exactly what you have to offer in the future. Just great to see you guys, man. And the way you’re playing your cricket man, love it. Enjoying it. Well done again. Hey, good to see you, man. The Pocket Rocket Man. Well done. OK? Hey, well done again, guys. And all the best moving forward. As I say again, if the guys in the maroon don’t get it done, I’m backing you,” Richards added.
