Without a doubt, Hardik Pandya is one of the most talented cricketers. Recently, he reflected upon the biggest controversy of his career.
The all-rounder admitted that even though his appearance on the TV show Koffee with Karan was met with widespread backlash and a suspension from the Indian national cricket team, the incident has definitely made him wiser.
In a conversation with cricket expert Harsh Bhogle on Cricbuzz on Wednesday, Hardik candidly admitted that he was someone who did not run away from accepting his mistakes. He also spoke of the aftermath of the incident where his family was abused.
“When that happened, I said to myself let’s just accept it and try to correct the mistake. If I would have not accepted that mistake, that part would have still been in me. That phase does not bother me anymore because my family has accepted it,” Hardik said.
“My family got abused. My father gave an interview post the incident and people made a mockery of it. What hurt me the most was my action caused my family problems, and that’s not acceptable,” Hardik said.
For the uninitiated, Pandya recently announced on Instagram that he is set to become a father with fiancee Natasa Stankovic, who is expecting their first child together.
