The all-rounder, who bowled very little after his successful back surgery, was also a major cog in the Mumbai Indians‘ setup.

The all-rounder has represented India in over 100 games across all three formats and has been represented in 92 IPL games so far.

On his way from participating in local tournaments in Gujarat to international star, Pandya attributes his success to his father, whom he lost earlier this year.

The 28-year-old spoke at length about his father’s efforts that made him what he is today.

“My father had tremendous faith in my abilities. That’s why he never stopped me from playing cricket. He did something no father would do. He shut everything in Surat and moved to Vadodara. We shifted there kyunki wahan pe young cricketers had better opportunities.”

“Dad ne mere liye ek bada step liya tha and I had to repay his faith. I played in every local tournament to show my worth to the world. In such tournaments, those who remained not out till the end were given some prize money. I made sure to win it every time. These small wins contributed to my big dream of playing for India. The day I got my India debut, I felt I had repaid my father’s sacrifices a tiny bit,” said the all-rounder in a video shared on Dream XI Instagram page.
