Hardik narrated the story of the struggle before IPL
Star all-rounder Hardik Pandya had to be out of Team India after the T20 World Cup due to poor form and injury. He is returning to the team after almost 6 months against South Africa. Hardik has told that during this time he worked hard listening to the taunts of the people, only then he could return to his team. In an interview given to BCCI TV, he has told his complete journey of 6 months. Let me tell you what he said…
Recalling the IPL victory, Hardik says, ‘I am very happy. This victory is a victory in my battle with myself. Winning the IPL, even qualifying for it was a big deal for me. Many people doubted our ability. Many people also raised many questions on us. Many things have been said about me. This was happening even before I could return.’
Hardik scored the highest 487 runs for Gujarat Titans in IPL
Hardik was not a part of the Indian team after last year’s T20 World Cup. Before IPL, he sweated a lot in training. Hardik tells that he used to get up at 5 in the morning. He used to sleep till 9:30 in the night so that he could train again the next day in the morning.
He says, ‘I never had to answer anyone. I am proud of the process I went through. Nobody knows what I saw in those 6 months. I used to get up at 5 in the morning so that I could train. For 4 consecutive months, he used to fall asleep at 9:30 at night. I have sacrificed a lot for this. This was the battle before IPL, which I was fighting. I have always worked very hard in my life. By working hard, I have always got the fruits according to my heart.
