People who do not know me even one percent, said a lot: Hardik Pandya

Bridgetown. Hardik Pandya believes in living with dignity and he has no grudges against people who do not know him even one percent for saying a lot after his failure as Mumbai Indians captain in IPL. Hardik, who became the captain of Mumbai Indians in place of Rohit Sharma in IPL, had to face hooting from his own team’s fans. Mumbai could not make it to the playoffs and questions were raised on him as a captain and player. However, he silenced everyone with his all-round performance in the World Cup.

After winning the title, he said, “I believe in dignity. People who do not know me even one percent, said so many things. People said but it does not matter. I always believe that one should not answer with words, the situation gives the answer.” He said, “Bad times do not last forever. It is important to maintain dignity, whether you win or lose.” Hardik said, “Fans and everyone have to learn this (to live with decency). We should have better behavior. I am sure that now those people will be happy.” Hardik did not let South Africa score 16 runs in the last over.

He said, “Honestly, I was having fun. Very few people get such life-changing opportunities. This gamble could have backfired but I see the glass half full, not half empty.” He said, “I was not taking pressure and was confident of my skills. This moment was written in our destiny.” The next T20 World Cup is in India and Hardik can be the captain but he is not thinking so far ahead. He said, “There is a lot of time in 2026. I am very happy for Rohit and Virat. Two legends of Indian cricket who deserved this victory. It was fun playing with them in this format. They will be missed but there could not have been a better farewell than this.
