‘This one is for my dad’: Krunal Pandya breaks down in tears after smashing fastest 50 by ODI debutant


(*50*) is all Krunal Pandya may handle in the interview with Murali Kartik after smashing 58 off 31 balls in the first ODI vs England on Tuesday. His innings, approaching his debut, was the fastest by a debutant in the historical past of ODI cricket.

As Krunal broke down in tears, Kartik requested him to take his time. Krunal then requested for the interview to be lower quick and the cameras moved away from him.

The cameras later confirmed his brother Hardik Pandya going as much as him. “It is a proud moment for the family, and an emotional one as well,” Kartik mentioned.

“The emotions well up. He has lost his father just months ago, so the emotions are raw. It was great of Murali Kartik to not carry on with the proceedings and allow him to go and prepare to bowl,” mentioned Sunil Gavaskar a bit later.
