“I was disappointed when I heard this news because this is false. This team has given me everything. Why would I leave it? My life changed when I got a chance to play for MI (Mumbai Indians) and then I never looked back. I had a small failure and that’s why I learned to be even more professional. You need to understand that some things are bad. That’s how you improve in life,” stated Hardik Pandya according to News18.

He went on to state that he has learnt a lot from MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli. “I have learned from both of them, they are amazing. I take a lot of advice from Dhoni. Virat is a gem of a guy. We keep on laughing, we keep on pulling each other’s legs. We have a very strong bond,” he added.
