Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya is mainly known for his brazen confidence and lavish lifestyle. Pandya was away from the field for almost four months as he suffered an injury during the ODI World Cup 2023 match against Bangladesh. The versatile all-rounder recently returned to competitive cricket during the DY Patil T20 Cup 2024 for Reliance. The Vadodara player will captain Mumbai Indians as well during IPL 2024.

During a recent chat on UK 07 Rider, Hardik Pandya revealed how he became an introverted person and he doesn’t like to go out. Pandya stated that he has not been out of his home for the past few years and he has only been out when the situation has been unavoidable. Pandya later added that there was a time when he didn’t go out for almost 50 days.

Hardik Pandya shares unheard fact about him

Hardik Pandya said, “One thing my fans don’t know about me is that I don’t go out now. I have hardly been out in the last two to three years; the only occasions I have stepped out is when it has been unavoidable. I like to stay at home. There was this time when I did not step out for 50 days and remained at home, and I never had a problem.”

Hardik Pandya is one of those Indian cricketers who garnered a lot of fan following and attention due to his brilliant big-hitting skills and his pace bowling. Pandya is also an athletic fielder and is always seen active in the field. The all-rounder came to the floor with his tattoos, aggressive celebrations, and fashion choices. However, Pandya doesn’t on whatever is going on social media and also he doesn’t care. He said, “I do not comment on what’s going on in social media, and also, I don’t care.”

Pandya’s desire for tattoos remains consistent, and he claimed that he once made a mistake and had to get one removed. However, his favorite was after his son Agastya was born, and another was when he competed in the World Cup. He also discussed a humorous occurrence and his first Man of the Match award in the IPL.

Hardik Pandya said, “I thought a player who is awarded as man of the match receives all the money. So when I won the MOM, I thought that the money was for me, but then I learnt that it gets divided among the team. After all, it is a team sport.”

Hardik Pandya was undergoing immense training during his time off the field in Vadodara along with India wicketkeeper-batsman Ishan Kishan. While playing for Reliance, Pandya was able to score 3 runs with the bat and grabbed 2 wickets with the ball.

The Indian all-rounder will now focus on performing in the T20 World Cup 2024. The Indian team for the major ICC tournament will be selected on the basis of how the players perform in IPL 2024. Pandya will also have the extra responsibility of leading the Mumbai Indians and leading them to the title yet again.
