New Delhi: Mumbai Indians' all-rounder Krunal Pandya is slowly becoming one of the pillars of the Rohit Sharma-led side in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2016.
When asked about his tuning with his brother Hardik Pandya, Krunal, who hammered a 37-ball 86 against Delhi Daredevils on Sunday, said that the two brothers are sort of inseparable.
"We are very very close to each other. I and Hardik can't stay without each other, 24*7 we are together. I feel really proud when he does well for whichever team he represents. And same is with Hardik. He feels really happy when I do well. We have a different kind of relation. We can't leave each other," he said.
Such has been Krunal's performance that the team management now prefers him over Hardik, who played some sensational knocks for Mumbai last year.
With seven wins from 13 matches, Mumbai are ranked third in the points table and need to win their final match of the league stage to qualify for play-offs.
