Krunal Pandya is one of the stars of the Indian Premier League since he made his debut in 2016 for the Mumbai Indians and has since become stronger and stronger.
Krunal has improved with each passing year and he realized his dream of making the India squad in July when he was called to replace Washington Sundar for the T20I series against England, but not to get a game.
However, that did not demotivate him and he remains certain that he will reach the World Championship team next year, because that is his next challenge.
"My ultimate goal is to play for the country, to play for India in the World Cup and that is the next goal to be very honest.
"I'm going to tournament in tournament or you can say match by match and if I do it right, I'll get exactly what I want, so in the end, the ultimate goal is to play the 2019 World Cup for India in the way I go. I also achieve that ", Krunal told the official website of Mumbai Indians.
Krunal and his younger brother Hardik have been a key figure in the success of the Mumbai Indians in recent years and Krunal was ecastatic when he had the opportunity to share the dressing room in India with Hardik because it looked like a dream come true.
"It was as if a dream came true for both of us." In the first T20I when Hardik and I shared the dressing room for India, it was a great feeling.

"It's a good feeling to be with Hardik in the Indian team and we played with each other for Mumbai Indians, so it's good to play with him instead of playing against him! It's just the beginning but the feeling was really good, because from childhood you have a tendency to dream to play for the country and suddenly when you're called it feels great, "Krunal said.
For the time being, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal remain India's front-line spinners in the limited-overs team and are followed by Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja in the right order. But Krunal is a much better batsman in the order than and can also place tight overs. Therefore, a call-up for him in the final 15 should not be a surprise.
