Hardik Pandya started training at Kiran More Cricket Academy in Baroda when he was five years old. He has now become one of the best all-rounders in Indian cricket. He made his debut for Team India in 2016 and has since played 11 Tests, 66 One-Day Internationals (ODI) and 73 Twenty20 Internationals. He is regarded as a genuine match-winner in white-ball cricket.

During the interview, More also stated that if he had not been a cricketer, he would have been a chef, as his father was an excellent cook. Tilak Varma and Rajat Patidar were also recognized as the next great thing in Indian cricket, and Kapil Dev was named as the best leader he had played under.

The 60-year-old named Sachin Tendulkar and Sunil Gavaskar as the most stylish players among his peers. He said that Patrick Patterson, Wasim Akram, Allan Donald and Malcolm Marshall were the toughest bowlers he faced in his career.
