HYDERABAD, May 13: After enjoying an amazing IPL season with Mumbai Indians where he enthralled the crowd with his prototype of �Helicopter Shot�, all-rounder Hardik Pandya has now trained his eyes on World Cup triumph.

Shrugging the off-field controversies, Hardik was in his element scoring 402 runs at a strike-rate of 191 plus and 14 wickets apart from 11 catches.

�I played well this season, but now time to move on. I want to lift that World Cup trophy as well,� Hardik said in a flash interview on Star Sports after Mumbai Indians beat CSK by 1 run to lift their fourth trophy.

Hardik and elder brother Krunal were barely into their teens when IPL started in 2008 and it was a dream come true for them to have won the trophy together on two occasions (2017). Hardik has now been a part of three IPL winning teams.

�I used to have Mumbai Indians posters in my room growing up, and to win with them. Amazing.�

He was happy that law of averages didn�t catch up with Mumbai Indians, who had defeated CSK thrice in this edition (twice in league stages and then Qualifier 1).

�Lot of people were saying that we had won three times so they would win the fourth. But I told Krunal, no, it�s going to be 4-0. I lost a few kgs today, such a tight game it was.�

Brother Krunal had a hand with an accurate throw from the deep that got rid of Shane Watson.

�Unbelievable game. From childhood, we wanted to play good cricket together. Even when we weren�t in the IPL, we wanted to play for Mumbai Indians.�

For the elder brother, who is now India�s T20 specialist, the younger sibling is the source of inspiration. � PTI
