I couldn’t sleep and was up till five in the morning staring at the ceiling, thinking that my career was finished. However, these things are normal. Senior players will surround you; the current team dynamic is positive, and I commend the captain and coach for that. The athletes gain knowledge from their errors. Therefore, one must acknowledge their error, take appropriate action, and look forward to the next time they are under pressure.”
