It has been a fairly good season for Krunal Pandya. Senior Pandya has been working quietly but impactfully for the table toppers Mumbai Indians. Let it be a couple of tight spells or cameos at the back end, Pandya has assumed a silent role in his teams success.
But he enjoys this role, Krunal has learnt to enjoy his little moments in the game and keep going. The Baroda all rounder shared that he enjoys going out in crunch situations and deliver for the side.
“It wasn’t that I wasn’t bowling well. In the first game, I gave away 37 runs but you have to see at what time I was bowling. I bowled the 18th and 19th overs, so those overs are challenging and I like those challenges,” Krunal said during a media interaction on Sunday.
“Yeah, I am playing this role for the last four-five overs. This year also I am happy with the way I have been going about with my batting and bowling it is a thankless job, but I love those tough situations and I wait for those as a player,” he said.
Krunal eyes national comeback
Pandya in his short international career has been great but with level of competition in Indian cricket thats not enough. He understands the situation. He is hopeful that these small but impactful performances will help him don the light blue jersey again.
“I want to make a comeback to the Indian side I’ve played 18 games in about a year. And I did quite well. I got MoM in New Zealand, in Australia and got the Man of the Series against West Indies. In batting also, I was quite happy with whatever I had done while playing for India. The way the season is going, I’m looking forward to making a comeback,” he concluded.
