Hardik Pandya answers questions by media on Sunday
After being asked if he would be more excited to play against CSK and MS Dhoni, Hardik admitted that although MS Dhoni will be there on other side, he would be equally happy to lock horns with every other team in IPL, no matter if they play against them once or twice. As presenter Vikram Sathaye pointed out that Hardik has his own helicopter shot, the GT captain added that the inventor of the shot will always remain MSD.
Hardik was then asked about his vision for the side, that he wishes to create at Gujarat Titans. On the same, he said, “The vision is to create a culture where everyone feels at home.” Hardik asserted on the fact that the players can perform well only if they feel a sense of security.
However, the best moment of the day was yet to come. After having some fun with one of the journalists, the Gujarat Titans’ captain was about his fitness and whether he would bowl in IPL 2022 or not. In reply, Hardik Pandya gave a very cheeky and mysterious response as he said, “Sir, surprise hai vo. Surprise ko surprise rehne do,” as both the player and journalist started laughing.

Considering how Hardik smiled and kept it as a surprise, it looks like he is getting towards 100% fitness and he might be seen batting and bowling in full flow during IPL 2022. Well, the fans of both Gujarat Titans and Indian Cricket would be hoping the same. Let’s wait and watch!
