Indian all-rounder, Hardik Pandya is constantly in limelight for his on-field and off-field issues. The Mumbai Indian captain has gone through a difficult time, ever-since he replaced Rohit Sharma as the leader of the 5-time IPL winning team.

Expected to do well in IPL 2024, the Mumbai Indians slumped to the last position in the points table, and were in news for all the wrong reasons. Hardik, the MI captain faced a lot of backlash from the fans, due to his poor performance throughout the 2024 season.

However, come the T20 World Cup 2024, the all-rounder showed his class once again, when he hammered Bangladesh for a 23-ball 40 in India's only warm-up match ahead of the mega event. The Men in Blue clinched a comfortable win, and after the game, Hardik spoke to the official broadcasters, and opened up on his recent struggles.

"Eventually, I believe, you have to stay in the battle. Sometimes life puts you in situations where things are tough, but I believe that if you leave the game or the field, the battle that is, you won't get what you want from your sport, or the results you are looking for," Hardik said. "So, yeah, it has been difficult, but at the same time, I have been process-driven, I have tried to follow the same routines I used to follow earlier," Hardik stated.

The 30-year-old added that in life, there are good times and bad times, and he knows that he'll come out of this tough phase really soon.

"At the same time these things happen; there are good times and bad times, these are phases that come and go. That is fine. I have gone through these phases many times and I will come out of it as well," Hardik added.

Hardik Pandya and Team India will start their T20 World Cup campaign against Ireland on June 5, and the star player will hope to deliver once again, as he always does for India.
