I have seen him since my childhood – Krunal Pandya
Now, he is showing his calibre for Mumbai Indians. Meanwhile, speaking of the change in Pandya’s approach, his brother Krunal Pandya revealed that Hardik has worked on his game during his stay away from the team.
“When Hardik was away from cricket due to injury and the issue, for seven-eight months, he has worked on his fitness a lot. I’ve seen him from childhood when we played together; cricket has been a priority in his life, whatever the situation may be,” Krunal Pandya said as per SportStar.
He quoted that Hardik Pandya has got great work ethics, which is a quality of a great player. Kruinal believes that Hardik would achieve greater heights and help the team to fetch victories on a consistent basis.
“I’ve seen very few players have the work ethics he has, the hard work he puts in day in and day out. His goal or our goals have always been to improve our own game. If you keep improving your game, you’ll be consistent.
Hardik Pandya is a dedicated cricketer:
The left-arm all-rounder quoted that Hardik Pandya is a hard-working cricketer. He believes that all those hard yards put in by Hardik have given him the rich rewards, which he is enjoying currently.
