Mumbai: Who does not want to emulate MS Dhoni or Sachin Tendulkar? Everyone does – and Hardik Pandya is no exception. Ahead of Gujarat Titans IPL debut against Lucknow Super Giants, Hardik expressed his desire to emulate the lofty heights Dhoni and Tendulkar have scaled.
“That sweet lofty spot, where grit lives with the grind, labor leads to luck. It is a range that my brother (MS Dhoni) has scaled and I have made no attempts to hide that I want to emulate him. It’s a place that my hero (Sachin Tendulkar) has owned and told me stories of how he got there,” he said in a video posted by Gujarat Titans.
