“He replied back ‘your attitude is fine, everything is fine, just you have to keep one thing in mind to reach and have that level of consistency. You should have great hunger to be the no. 1 in the right way. Not by pushing anyone down. By your own hard work and on your own merit, to become the no. 1 should be your goal’,” Pandya stated.

Pandya made his worldwide debut underneath M.S. Dhoni and his Test debut underneath Virat Kohli. He additionally performs for Mumbai Indians underneath the captaincy of Rohit Sharma.

“Now I know how why Virat is so consistent. Players like Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni — they don’t like being at no. 2. At the same time, if these players come 2nd, they don’t mind that either.

“They want to be no. 1, but their greatness is such that if they come at 2nd place, they have no problems. They will re-start the process of hardwork to be the no.1,” the all-rounder stated.
