We reached the finals of three ICC competitions within a year. I lost the Test World Cup final in June. Then we had to lose in the one-day world cup final as well. Even after winning 10 consecutive matches, we did not reach the final. I also thought that we will win the T20 World Cup. I was saying this last June.’

However, BCCI officials will have to find a new captain for 20-over cricket. Hardik Pandya can get the responsibility. He was the vice-captain of the team in the last World Cup.
