“Performing well in the second Indian Premier League (IPL) season is always tough for players as the opponents have already read you and they come hard at you. I am very satisfied with my performance and this was the best season for me,” said Krunal who was named man-of-the-match award in the finals against Rising Pune Supergiant.
26-year-old chipped in with a crucial contribution with the bat as Mumbai posted a respectable score and then went on to defend it. “I was out of action for a long time due to injury but I had a good outing for Baroda in Vijay Hazare Trophy this season. So I was confident of performing well in IPL,” Krunal told TOI. He scored 243 runs and took 10 wick ets in the 13 games he played.
