Pandya also said that he likes to play under pressure and revealed that he works hard on his game to win tough battles for his side.

“I am looking forward to it. It has been six IPL seasons with Mumbai Indians. I have been part of three IPL trophies. Definitely, wherever I go I will share my experience.

In the T20 format of the game, every situation is different: Krunal Pandya

Krunal Pandya also added that he has gotten better with every year he has played the game. Adding that the numbers might not always do justice to the impact that a player creates, Pandya opined that in the T20 format, every situation that a player encounters will be different from the other. The all-rounder concluded by stating that he focuses on the process and tries to get better as a player every time.

“What I have felt is that I have always got better every year. Sometimes the numbers don’t justify what you have done or whether you are getting better or not. In a T20 format, every situation is different. How you have been used also matters a lot in a way. I don’t focus on the result-oriented things. I focus on the process – whether I am getting better as a player and as a human being,” concluded Pandya.
