Hardik Pandya in a recent interview revealed about his crush and his favourite mobile app among other things. One-half of the Pandya brothers disclosed about the fact that he has a major crush on Bollywood and Hollywood actress Deepika Padukone.

Hardik had a brilliant Indian Premier League this season as he finished many games on his own at crunch situations both with the bat and the ball. He lit up the tournament at MCA Stadium, Pune against the Rising Pune Supergiants in the second match of the tournament as he smashed Ashok Dinda to all parts of the ground in the last over. He smashed four sixes and a boundary to score 28 off the last over.


In the second innings against Mumbai Indians match against Kolkata Knight Riders at Wankhede, he smashed 29 off 11 balls to chase down the target set by Gambhir and his boys. Overall, Hardik Pandya scored 250 runs at a strike rate of 156 and also took 6 wickets in the tournament.

BCCI recently released a video with Hardik Pandya answering a list of queries regarding his likings and that Pandya had to answer spontaneously. One of the major revelation from the interview was that Deepika Padukone is the one actress which lures the cricketer from Baroda.

Wankhede- Favourite Ground

Additionally for Pandya, playing in front of Wankhede is the best experience for him as he stated that the stadium in Mumbai is his favourite in the world. The lasting memory which brings goosebumps to the Gujarat cricketer is the one against Bangladesh when he was handed over the ball in the final over. India won the match by just one run thanks to some smart work behind the stumps from Dhoni.

He further revealed that the straight drive is his favourite shot and loves to spend texting on Whatsapp as it is his favourite one. The younger of the two Pandya’s concluded by claiming that he wouldn’t want change his name as he likes it a lot.
