Ace all-rounder Hardik Pandya has shown a great deal of potential ever since he burst at the highest level. Despite having a lot of talent and ability, the cricketer has lacked consistency. Recently, Hardik revealed one advice from India skipper Virat Kohli during a chat which got him thinking.
Kohli is arguably the best modern-day cricket. His hunger for success and to win is second to none. He leaves no stones unturned to finish on the winning side. Kohli is the right role model for youngsters from every sphere of life.
Recently, Hardik Pandya turned to Virat Kohli to know how he manages to remain at the top consistently. The Baroda-born all-rounder revealed what Kohli told and said it will remain with for a long time.
“Just two days ago, I was speaking to Virat. I asked him ‘what is the reason for your success?” Pandya said to Sports Tak.
“He replied back ‘your attitude is fine, everything is fine, just you have to keep one thing in mind to reach and have that level of consistency. You should have great hunger to be the no. 1 in the right way. Not by pushing anyone down. By your own hard work and on your own merit, to become the no. 1 should be your goal’,” Pandya added.
Hardik Pandya first impressed in the Indian Premier League playing for Mumbai Indians. He made his limited-overs debut under MS Dhoni while his Test debut came under Virat Kohli. The young all-rounder, who will soon become a father said that you will have to compete with yourself to get better.
“You have to strive to be the best. If you’re a bowler, you have to be the best. If you’re training, then you have to be eager to train. In life, you need to compete with yourself,” Pandya said.
