The Mumbai Indians (MI) had a tough time in the recently concluded edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), as the defending champions failed to reach the playoffs and ended up on the fifth position this year. However, the previous edition was a successful and remarkable one for the whole franchise as they became the first team to win three titles.
The MI all-rounder Krunal Pandya who got married to his girlfriend Pankhuri Sharma, last year in December, recently came up with some exciting revelations about the time when he proposed to his then-girlfriend Pankhuri.

Everything was dream come true for me and I thought I should make it even more special and I proposed to her,” added the MI all-rounder.
