An interesting video came on Instagram which showed Krunal Pandya and his father were having a good time playing cricket with a tennis ball in their house. Krunal Pandya’s father was not able to connect the ball with the bat as he was bowling some speedy deliveries at him.
On Social Media, Krunal Pandya put the video and it showed that instead of taking a break from cricket after the West Indies tour he was back with it on his home.

Krunal Pandya has been rising all-rounder in T-20 cricket and has been a more than utility cricketer in the shorter format. He got his first chance to showcase his skills under Virat Kohli against Australia in Australia in T-20 games where he performed exceedingly well and bagged man of the tournament award for the series. He also took a fifer in the third match of the series in just a four-over spell.
Again he showcased his skills in the series against West Indies recently concluded. He would be eyeing a spot in that World Cup T-20 squad which scheduled to start in 2020 at Australia. With boundary cushions at a very large distance, he will be a good option lower down the order and come in handy in the balance of the team.
“The dream is to represent India in the World T20. Every performance will matter, but that is a long term goal. For now, it is about making it to the team in the next series and then do well.
“If I manage to keep performing, the goal of playing in the World T20 in Australia will be fulfilled. However, for now, the focus is the next series against South Africa. Always important to take it one at a time,” Krunal said after the T20I series in the Caribbean.
