Hardik Pandya has been a versatile player for his club Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL) as well as for Team India now in all three formats of the game. It was in 2015 IPL season that he made it large. Ever since he has been an integral part of the Mumbai setup.

Earlier this year, Hardik was retained by the Mumbai Indians and was one among the three players they decided to hold onto. His brother Krunal Pandya was also bought back by MI in the auction with the RTM card. In a candid chat with Mumbai Indians, Hardik spoke about his childhood, his mischiefs and his relationship with elder brother Krunal.

I was very naughty

Hardik gave a summary of how naughty he was in his childhood. He narrated an incident as to how he would colour his hair and make excuses in front of the coach. He even got scolded by his mother for the same.

“When I was 11, I used to colour my hair. And when I came home, my mom will scold me but still I would do it again. I made stupid excuses to my coach. If the coach asked me what happened, I would say that, I had gone for a haircut and some colour fell and got on me accidentally. So yes, I was very naughty, I got into several fights, I never made friends,” the younger Pandya said while talking to MI.

We all have seen the equation Krunal and Hardik share on the field. Both brothers have got each other’s backing no matter what. Hardik conceded that he and the elder brother would perform WWE moves on each other.

“I even troubled Krunal a lot. Because of me, Krunal never had friends either because if one brother picks a fight, the other is forced to fight as well. So he lost many friends. Krunal and I used to play WWE. We broke many beds. I would Choke-Slam and Rock-Bottom him and many other WWE moves,” Pandya said.
