IPL 2022: I have started to balance things in my life, says Hardik Pandya after taking Gujarat Titans to the final
IPL 2022: A unique perspective Hardik Pandya has risen to prominence in the Indian Premier League (IPL) this season, and the Gujarat Titans‘ (GT) captain believes he has finally found a balance on and off the field.
Gujarat Titans, a first-time club, have reached the final in their inaugural season, and Pandya’s 453 runs in 15 games and seven wickets have played a factor, in addition to his calm demeanour as captain.
“I’ve started to balance things in my life. It has been a constant effort through the last couple of years,” Pandya, who was once known for his flamboyant attitude said after the Titans’ comfortable seven-wicket victory over Rajasthan Royals in first qualifier.
“All the 23 players are different characters, bring different things to the table. Was saying to Miller as well: if you have good people around you, you also get good things. It’s been that story for us. The kind of people we have, the genuine human beings we have..
“I genuinely see even the players in the dugout are trying and praying for them to make sure they do well. That is something fantastic and that is the reason we have reached where we have reached. It’s all about making sure we respect this game.”
He praised Miller, who has won at least four games in the tournament by himself thus far.
“But I’m proud of Miller – the way we have played. Wherever my team requires me to play, I don’t generally demand where I want to bat. That’s not how I’ve got success.”
