The India all-rounder Hardik Pandya says taking on a positive way to deal with everything throughout everyday life and the support of his family members who “let him be” as he battled recurring injuries helped him get back to his best ahead of the T20 World Cup.
Hardik might be the game changer if India is to do well in the T20 World Cup in Australia. Ahead of his departure to Australia, the 29-year-old talked about the important role played by his family.
Pandya has invested a lot of energy in his wellness throughout recent months after recurring injuries got him far from bowling. He is now bowling consistently for India; lending much-needed balance to the side.
“It has to do a lot with helping myself to go back to the basics and approaching everything on a positive note. Because of that I have got peace in my life looking at the brighter side always.
“I know I will have good days and bad days but the positivity comes from the hard work that I put in, which then gives me the self-belief and confidence to give it everything. And with the support of my family to always have my back, I feel a sense of complete focus and positivity around me,”he told RISE Worldwide.
Hardik Pandya said that he has had a lot of time to focus on himself and reflect on parts of his journey that he had recently neglected. While Pandya has consistently endeavored to get fitter, he credited his family for allowing him to go one step further during the last year or so.
“This time the difference was that my family played a big role in terms of letting me be myself. More than anything, let me have my own time to realize what exactly I want for myself,”he said.
“The credit goes to Natasha, Agastya, Krunal – everyone kind of allowed me to maintain my routine and made sure [to realize] that you know what, Hardik right now should focus on himself and he should keep himself as a priority.
“And because of that, I was able to understand a lot of things which I had kind of forgotten over the years while playing because there are certain things you don’t write down, it just happens,”he added.
