“I think things will be easier for me now because [when] two different captains were there, sometimes things weren’t easy because we both had different ideas,” Harmanpreet said during a virtual press conference.

“But now the players will think clearly [and know] what I demand as a captain, and everyone can be happy about that. It’s easier for me to ask them what I expect from them, so things will be a lot easier for me and my teammates as well.”
