What did captain do here? More like maybe he/she was a factor behind this (unless a hardware failure is confirmed)

I don't expect anything concrete to come from CAA. So unless it is a hardware failure, in all circumstances, such excursions are a pilot fault mostly. Be it a late touchdown, a high crosswind, shaky approach etc

don't be so judgmental, what if it's really a hardware failure and he controlled on the touchdown to some extent?
