    “It’s All About Creating Impact”: Shardul Thakur

    “I think the game is evenly poised. It’s totally a second innings game now and there is a lot of time left in the game. There is still some life in the pitch and help for the bowlers. The batters can also score runs, so it can go anywhere. Frankly speaking, I don’t think about whether I’m a bowling all-rounder or batting all-rounder. It’s all about creating an impact when I’m out there and do something for the team. At the end of the day, I want my performance to be counted in a way that it helps the team to win,” said Shardul Thakur ahead of start of Day 3.
