WTD | S3E3 | Hardik Pandya & Krunal Pandya | What The Duck | Viu India


Brother Krunal, I have a friend who asked me,
“what is Hardik Pandya’s top three cricketing achievements?” so, I searched the internet, first three results which I got are “When will Hardik and Parineeti get married?” “Did Hardik scored a six on love field?” Urvashi says “Hardik Pandya is mine” How will he focus? Is it just three? I guess it should have been 6 to 7 As I saw this three, I closed the cricketing achievement page, How will he focus?
You got married, you are a left thumb orthodox and you got married soon. So, how does he focus? I guess, according to me, I don’t have anything to say him, right now. Letting him go the way he is going, as we say ”let it flow” My life my rules. We generally have this joke in our family Pankhuri, Hardik and I If one of us is giving us advice and we don’t want to listen then we just do this, It basically means ‘my life my rules’ If someone is giving advice we will just listen and if we don’t want to accept it,
we will do this to the other one, so, everyone understands. Now they have got a new thing, ‘khou’ (sarcastic sound), that is gone,
now, if someone is giving an advice we just do ‘khou’ ‘khou’ means ‘my life my rules’ means I don’t need your advice Even if there is an advice from a senior cricket, you do this. No, this is just between us three, outsiders don’t know about it. But, now sir, as you got married, are there any learnings out of your marriage that you would want him to know or you might have gained some
benefits in cricket also after marriage benefit I don’t want to get married. Regarding marriage, I want to give Hardik just one advice ‘don’t get married’. You can do it later, maybe in your forties,
till then you just see, as they say, ‘grow up’ Imran Khan married four times, great cricketers have to do a good job. Four, I can’t tell you.
We can’t disclose the name? I know someone, a very dear person to us, he got married four times. He has so many kids, I just can’t say. But strike rate is critical in cricket. Very critical, people fall from higher strike rate, the one whom we know,
they will also fall from a higher strike rate. No, but tell me one thing, whenever I visit your room
I notice there is already a family atmosphere created, between you two brothers and Pankhuri. Pankhuri says, ”Hardik is from my tribe from the tattoo point of view” what is that? No, they team up together He is our opposition and we two are a team. As Hardik says I irritate him a lot, he actually gets irritated
and sometimes he doesn’t come back to the room, he actually takes 2 to 3 hours to gather himself He is very happy because whenever he and Pankhuri meet,
she never agrees with me, so he enjoys that a lot. They both team up and he gets very happy
when she says something to me but yes, our bonding is great. Pankhuri will always message him,
if she leaves us alone, she will message him Don’t irritate him, don’t trouble him,
okay, my baby, please don’t trouble him. That’s nice, but two big moments in your life First we will talk about your big moment 2017 the big tournament and man of the match
and it coincided with a special day for you as well. Yes, I guess the same day after the match I proposed Pankhuri That night after the champagne when we reached the hotel, I thought this is the right time because it was the best moment of my life so far because in IPL we played finals,
declared champions for the first time plus Hardik was also with me. Everything was like a dream come true,
so, I thought I will make this day a bit more special. So I proposed after the match. You want to propose that’s why you won the match. Yes, won for that reason, winning was necessary. Both are equally important. And your first man of the match, Brilliant performance. Yes it was, but other than that I was unhappy because
I had a misunderstanding, at that time it was a contract of 10 lacs, for the man of the match we used to get 1 lacs and I won the man of the match and I also won the super striker or maximum sixes something like that, I won that, 2 lacs. Excitedly, I said to Bhajji, I got 2 lakhs. So, this IPL I got 12 lakhs, Bhajji started laughing Bhajjipa even said to madam when Nita Ambani came in, even she started laughing, Ricky Ponting was also laughing and everyone was laughing later when I came back, I got to know, the money is equally distributed in the entire team Oh my god And I got disappointed, I was hoping of shopping and I kept aside 2 lakhs for, I was excited I will shop for 50,000 All my hopes were shattered. Hopes turned down. From bungalow to one BHK. I said, fine, its ok. As you are master of shopping, I will give you some choices you have gone for shopping, you have got lots of money,
then what would you get for Krunal? Nothing I use second-hand item For Krunal I will get the thing which I got for myself. His style is different my style is different, look at what kind of clothes we are wearing I wore dark, he wore light or whatever it is called. Black and white
-Black and white I don’t get something for him, I try to get something for him when I see a costly thing and think whether he will be able to wear it,
then I don’t get the feeling that he would wear it. According to him costly things don’t suit me
– Doesn’t suit He doesn’t believe anything which I have done even if I am playing cricket on the ground or if I am sitting beside him,
I am sitting somewhere on a vehicle he will be like, how come you are here, why are you here. If I buy something I keep it safe, I maintain it,
if I buy a shoe I will clean it myself What a big achievement It’s a correct thing to do We should appreciate it Everything He also keeps his heart clean From my car to my watch, my shoe, my glasses I keep everything safe, you will not be able to see a scratch. If you check his, he considers top brands to be a same brand
and other big brands also he considers them to be same Everyone has to be treated equally. There I feel a bit disappointed, it’s a different brand it should get a little more respect He is a socialist type of person, he wants equality in everywhere in the world. Treat everyone equally, don’t discriminate. That’s why I don’t buy for him, he doesn’t deserve. What about Pankhuri? For Pankhuri I buy, I have bought so many things for her, she deserves them all the expensive things
– Can you name few? Can you name few? Okay, hypothetically One minute, he is the husband but he never gave things as much as I gave.
Get lost. They both say I have a bad choice. Yes, it is, it’s a fact.
– According to him so far in my life I have done just one good thing
that I got married to Pankhuri other than that I haven’t done anything good.
– Its True Now what to say. I got always influenced by West Indians I always thought I am Viv Richards like to throw the chewing gum hit it by the bat. I get that feeling when I see you, I think even you have that feel.
– Yeah man. I am a Caribbean man. I got it
– Go there and hit half a dozen man, you just have to back yourself. Totally under control man. Totally under control “Particular”. I have heard about a dialogue, Sunny sir said, in Kapil’s show.
– No matter what. He was out, batting on the 4th position, he was passing by,
the story is still in my mind “no matter, no matter, what number you bat, the score is still zero man” Absolutely right, absolutely. Sometimes I think, Pandya should adopt Kieron Pollard
and call him Kieron Pandya, I am sure, he also has ‘thepla’ in the breakfast It’s not like that, we are this way after we started playing IPL together, we are like this from our childhood, we love West Indians There is something in them-
They are very chilled out The best thing about West Indians what
I like is that they are very secure people, they don’t have insecurities if you talk to them. I have noticed Pollard from when I was new and till today, when we are playing for Mumbai Indians, I don’t see any insecurity in his behaviour Very easy going people
-They are not judgemental The best thing is they are not judgemental, they are easy going, not just Pollard but every West Indies player I met I have felt the same, when I was playing against RCB,
Chris Gayle was my favourite playerso I even try his style of batting, I have some different kind of love for them , they are very chilled out
and the main thing is that they don’t have any barrier No age barrier, someone’s a big player or a small player,
they don’t have such barrier, so I find it good I like one thing, that they keep smiling. And I saw that style of you When you come you take that wicket when you throw a knuckleball Now I cant do, I lost my hair.
Now I just smile and wink In fact, I want to tell you something
In 2003 Kenya team came to Baroda, for semi-finals, then they came to play practice game for Baroda Ranji trophy,
preparation match for the World Cup. So, Kenya team was waiting outside for their bus, and if you see Hardik’s childhood pictures
then you will think that this kid is a Caribbean, he is not an Indian. So, kids were going to take autographs but no one was giving Suddenly they see Hardik, it’s a true story, Thomos Odoyo, and Steve Tikolo, I don’t remember all their names, I was called Tikolo So, among them all, they gave an autograph to Hardik because they thought
-He is of our hometown He is from our hometown, so, they were like,
get this boy first, let’s give him an autograph first. So, this is from childhood. And Hardik was, even I was
but I used to look a little less West Indian, but he is like completely. Our mother is of fair complexion, when he was in mother’s hand he doesn’t look like her child. And I never left mother alone. The funniest thing is, if your son is black and someone called him black, it’s a fact but our mom used to fight and say my son is not black That is the most funniest thing. I always used to say, ”mummy why are you fighting, your son is black
and if someone is calling him black, they are not wrong” But every mother is protective like that. He is not blackish, he is not black.
-People call me blackish In South Africa innings, outstanding, Cape Town.
I don’t understand how someone can do batting in Cape Town, everything around is so good, you cant focus on the bowler. At one point I thought you are playing T20
-Even I thought so. It was a test match there and you were in good partnership with Bhuvi. Any memories there? Yes, many memories, scored many fours, enjoyed it. People use to say
South Africa ground is difficult, I enjoyed, felt proud. Bhuvi helped me a lot, being nonstriker. I still remember Sachin sir said about an incident on some show, I
don’t remember properly, I actually was unable to get it because the red ball was very difficult the Indian ball is which we play with in India is very different
and the ball we play with in other countries is a different ball. It’s an orangish ball, in short, it’s a different ball,
it’s not easy to find shiny and a rough ball. I was playing for the first time on the reverse swing, I have played in
Sri Lanka earlier, but it was a traditional swing it wasn’t difficult, generally balls from Asia are different from that of the foreign ball,
though the company are same but the balls are different. That time I asked Bhuvi to help me because I was not getting a proper idea.
Bhuvi and I decided if he is keeping shine outside, then you hold the bat at left side because he was on non strike,
if he is keeping it inside then you keep the bat the other side. Nice. And if you are unable to see, then keep it in middle. When I get a ball of outswing I used to be ready
and when I get a little width then I hit it above the cover, I was striking the ball on the side it was going, and when he was
holding it inside, I was trying to stop because I might get out, whenever it was in middle then I was stopping the ball there itself,
not moving the hand whatsoever may happen. Bhuvneshwar will understand swing bowling the best. King Two great all-rounders.
But you are a master sir, ABD is your bunny, say something how do you get him out, 4 to 5 times you have got him out. Few bowlers will survive if they get some knowledge Got his wicket, yes, I played 4 times against ABD and all 4 times I got him out. I have always said whenever I bowl I have nothing to lose but everything to gain. Because he is a legend, such a big player, even if he hits 6 sixes also,
what would anyone say, yes, he is a legend he scored, but if I get his wicket then it’s all gain for me. Whenever I get into a tough situation or playing against a big player
then I enjoy it, because when do you become a hero? That’s the time you become one. Great You become a hero like this, whenever I am in such a situation,
I don’t ask myself, ‘why me?’ I consider this as an opportunity When I was bowling against ABD I was thinking if I get his wicket I will become famous. Salary will be doubled too
-it’s already doubled by the way So, in front of him its everything to gain and nothing to lose.
So, I bowl my best ball and took his wicket four times, But he is a legend, so I can’t say I know this weakness about him etc You should say, you know what I did, I picked up his.. Nothing like that, In cricket, learn to exaggerate and talk it’s very important. But, yes, I took his wicket four times, looking forward to taking his
wicket for the 5th time, last time I did that, this time I hope I would do this. If you don’t take his wicket then umpire would do this The funniest part when you take ABD’s wicket is,
don’t check your social media, people will abuse you Holy crap! And that too in our own country.
-Yes, in our own country But he is a good man. “You are a nobody before him”
“What were those actions you were doing in front of him?” I was like, “my bad, bro!”… one person literally abused me. Ask me, I have got AB de Villiers out too.
In the last three months, I got him out twice back to back. How you have developed the knuckleball! I tell Zaheer Khan,
if he had patented the knuckleball, he could have earned so much on it. He was the one who used it first. Yeah, exactly. World cup 2011. What incredible bowling! But this time, sir, you have done a great job.
The way you held the ball and those slower bouncers! Purple cap. Brother has even worn purple cap once. Do exaggerate a little and answer. How did you develop the knuckleball? Huh! Yeah, it took me literally many days, many hours of hard work. I had to watch the video keenly, how it goes. I discussed about it so much. And… then I tried it in the net and it worked. I once bowled it in the net, it worked and then I said,
this is a good ball, let’s bowl this. I bowled it in a match, it turned successful. So, in a match, I first bowl and see how it goes because I don’t
practice it in the net. I just saw it and learned. You don’t practice the knuckleball? I first bowl it early in the match, if it is going in some other direction,
then I won’t bowl that ball. If the first try works, then I am like, this day I can bowl knuckleball. But now, you can do it. Now, people know that you won’t bowl a
knuckleball if the first ball doesn’t work. You do it the other way now. Now, I will bowl. No, this will release during next IPL,
this IPL will be over by that time. Exactly.
But that last over of Bangladesh was legendary. It was special for both of you because it was… It was my birthday- 24th March.
The match finished on the 23rd, sometime around 12 or 11:50 at night. It was like a gift for me. You can’t say that he has not given you a gift.
Come on, Hardik, this is your time. Tell him. I don’t take pleasure in demeaning anyone, bro. Sir, last over… had I been there, I would have run away. 5-6 runs were remaining?
-No, there were… 11 I got two fours and made it 3. I made it interesting Correct. You have the responsibility of increasing the TRP. They say there must be some drama. I said, take the drama. I got 9 runs on 3 balls I bowled. They needed 2 runs.
2 runs? They needed 2 runs. 2 runs in 3 balls and 3 wickets. Did you have any talk with Mahi? I left nothing to discuss. What he could talk to me! I bowled him and he struck with his bat and got out.
Then we discussed whether to bowl Yorker or this one. Mahi says, “Yorker is a good option, but we don’t know whether he
would be able to bowl a Yorker” and then he asks which back of length ball I can bowl. I said, “Mahi, I will bowl back of length perfectly”. I bowled second
back of length ball. That keeper wanted to finish the match with sixes, I went to their dressing room to give a send-off. He was making
gestures of winning before that. I went to them and said that they have lost. Then MS Dhoni became Usain Bolt on the last ball
and he stumped in 9 seconds instead of 9.58 seconds. Wonderful. We won, otherwise we would have been out of the World Cup. And your amazing performance, finals against Pune. I still remember we were at 74 runs for 7 or 8 wickets. My score was
around 10 or 15 runs and then Mitchel Johnson came to bat. We got a timeout. When I was playing on leg stump, I said to myself
that we cannot lose from here. It was a self-belief. Because when you see it practically, when you are 70 for 8 in finals, it seems impossible.
-It was impossible. I had in mind that no matter what,
I will not get out and I will strike hard in the last two overs. I will not hit hard till then. I will score therequired runs in the last two overs and it turned just like that, I didn’t hit till the 18th over and played in
the last two overs; we scored 130. 130 was a total for which you can bowl, whereas 80 and 90 cannot be defended. While I was batting, I said to
myself that I am not going to lose my wicket, come what may. I will hit in the last two overs only. We made 130. Fortunately, we got our first wicket. Bumrah took the
wicket which was our first breakthrough. Ajinkya was the main player of RPS and he was batting well. Malinga bowled a slower and Ajinkya Rahane hit it. The ball came like
the way you pass a ball from one player to another from mid-off or cover, it was the same catch.
The catch dropped and I fell down like this. He fell down there like that and I was standing on point.
He fell there like that I fell like this from the point. Rohit is doing like this and I bent down.
-I fell down in slow motion and I am just watching the sky lying there. This is not my brother! I said in my mind, “what the *** did he do?!” The moment I dropped the catch,
the first thing that came to my mind was that we have lost the cup. Because when you have 130 and you don’t drop such an easy catch
of Ajinkya Rahane… then he hits a four on the very next ball. I was counting Ajinkya’s runs, one more…
-Salt in the wound. I have never prayed to God as much as I did after that catch till the last 20th ball. I was praying that they don’t win. But that match was amazing.
The way we defended the total of 130. Unbelievable. That match was a roller coaster ride. Guys, this round is called “Brain Fade”. Your brain can fade after this
round. You have to answer. The questions are easy, you just have to react. Fine? Biggest liar in the dressing room? Ishan Kishan.
-Ishan He is our guy. He won’t mind. Biggest cry-baby in the dressing room? Ishan Kishan. Biggest foodie in the dressing room? Paul Chapman and I have seen Amit Shah having breakfast.
-Amit Shah, my masseur. Favourite Bollywood actress? All of them. All.
-Pankhuri Pandya Best garba dancer? Parthiv Patel Jet spray or mug? Jet spray. Ooh, la la. Favorite bald person? Vikram Sathaye.
-Vikram Sathaye, yes. This was a no-brainer. Rate the following player’s hairstyles on the scale from 1 to 10:
Malinga? For him-10, for me-6. Pollard? Pollard doesn’t have hair for a hairstyle. Dhoni? Mahi is very subtle, very good hairstyle
-10 on 10. Dhoni from 2007? Long hair? I like it.
-Even I like it. Musharraf also liked it.
Krunal Pandya? Good, not bad. You people are so diplomatic.
