Indian star all-rounder Hardik Pandya who recently has made his Test debut against Sri Lanka, revealed that it was a proud moment for him as he always wanted to represent his country in the longer version of cricket.

“It is always a pretty good feeling when you make your Test debut. I always wanted to play Test cricket and finally getting that chance was a proud moment for me,” said Pandya.

On being asked if he had any nerves at the time when he got to know that he is making his Test debut for India, Pandya replied that he did not believe in taking the unnecessary pressure.

He added, “That is the good thing about me and that I don’t take the unnecessary pressure. I was just trying to keep it calm when I got to know about it.”

Meanwhile, Hardik Pandya’s brother Krunal Pandya also made his India ‘A’ debut in South Africa on the same day when he made his Test debut.

“We message each other and we are always in touch. I make sure I talk to him so I message. We talk every day and talk about what is happening in each other life. We also talk about cricket and make sure we keep helping each other,” informed Pandya.

He concluded, “As a bowler, it’s all about being consistent and working hard. Whether I am a bowler or batsmen I have to play my role and as a bowler, eventually, my job is to take wickets.”
