“He’s going to do wonders ahead as well. Many more to come and we all know that how a great cricketer you are and how special you are. So, lots of love from everyone, and the whole MI is very happy for you, and yeah please keep doing this. It’s very entertaining and it’s very pleasing to the eye to watch you play” Pandya further added.
