Mumbai Indians (MI) are having a journey of their dreams in IPL 2020 as they jumped yet again to the top of the tally. In their previous game, they defeated Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by eight wickets to walk off with glory. Hardik Pandya was successful in getting quick runs at the end, which ended the match perfectly for them. It’s a well-known fact that Pandya is known for his flashy lifestyle, his outfits and accessories turn heads all the while.

The year 2020 has been great for him in terms of his personal life as he got married to his Serbian girlfriend and actress Natasa Stankovic. The couple was also blessed with a baby boy in the month of July, and their happiness knew no bounds. However, Hardik Pandya is in UAE without his wife and three-month-old toddler Agastya due to COVID-19 concerns but seems like he has adapted himself well enough to the role of a father.

In Mumbai’s most recent match, Pandya was honoured with Super-Striker of the match, and Danny Morrison asked him whether he misses attending parties now. Players are restricted inside the bio-secure bubble, and therefore, they are not allowed to go out. Pandya answered Morrison’s question in a funny yet responsible manner and said, “I’ve become a father now so, I think I should not miss that. I should be missing changing the diapers.”

Hardik Pandya’s brilliance won the game for Mumbai in 17th over

The answer left everyone smiling. The star all-rounder finished the chase for Mumbai in the 17th over only as he scored quickfire 21* off 11, including three fours and a maximum. Talking about his batting, the 26-year-old, shared a significant detail about his bat and his frame of mind while being on the crease.

“I have been using that bat for three years now, so it has to be good. Just making sure that I keep working on my technique and maintaining the shape is more important. I go in deep in my batting, I really like to know about the factors which I am working on and eventually when it turns out pretty well, I really enjoy it,” Pandya concluded”
