Guys I'm stuck in the below issue for overriding core template file.

I'm trying to override default Magento search engine. I want to override core filter.phtml and toolbar.phtml

I get the products rendered into the frontpage, but my custom templates are not being used.

I get something like this:

I have to get these("Items", "Sort By", "Shipping Options") from toolbar.phtml which i'm not getting

enter image description here


<?xml version="1.0"?>
 <referenceBlock name="catalogsearch.leftnav">
   <action method="setTemplate">
    <argument name="template" xsi:type="string">Vendor_Module::product/list/toolbar.phtml</argument>

toolbar.phtml Is same code as core.

I doubt the block name in my xml, please suggest
