During match 32 of the ongoing IPL 2020 edition between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), the Rohit Sharma-led team won by 8 wickets with 19 balls left.
With this win, MI have beaten KKR on ten occasions in their last 11 face-offs since May 2015.
Talking about the match, KKR couldn't do anything significant as the two-time winners were reeling at 61-5 before an unbeaten 77-run stand, for the sixth-wicket, between Pat Cummins (53*) and Morgan (39*) took KKR to 148-5.
But Rohit-led MI were guided by Quinton de Kock's sublime 78* to win by 8 wickets and 19 balls remaining.
Meanwhile, Hardik Pandya, couldn't do much, he still slammed an unbeaten 21* off 11 deliveries to close the chase soon.
Post the match, commentator Danny Morrison asked if the 26-year-old misses attending parties in IPL 13 as players are currently restricted to the strict bio-bubble environment. Hardik gave a hilarious answer saying, "I’ve become a father now so I think I should not miss that. I should be missing changing the diapers."
Hardik Pandya, who is known for his flashy lifestyle recently got married to long-time girlfriend Natasa Stankovic and also welcomed his first child, Agastya in July. With a three-month old baby boy, it seems Hardik is aware of his responsibilities as a father.
"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 by 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,” he said further on his batting.
“It’s simple - see the ball, play the ball. In my batting, I keep it simple. I don’t think much about what the bowler is gonna bowl. I think the bowler is gonna bowl here, I prepare myself but then eventually I play merit of the ball," he finally added.
