Krunal Pandya said in a post-match presentation: “I have been bowling well. For the last 7-8 months, I have been working hard. Special mention to Rahul Sanghvi. The results everyone can see as I have tried to improve skill-wise.”

He continued, “A lot of times when you are playing shorter formats you don't realize a lot of things. I have been trying to increase my height with my release and some things on my grip. I took Rahul Sanghvi's help and it has worked.”

The all-rounder is also hoping to contribute with the bat in the ongoing IPL 2022. Pandya signed off by saying, “Batting is slightly close to my heart. I haven't been contributing much with the bat but it is a long tournament and going forward I will look to contribute with the bat.”
