Krunal Pandya is an Indian cricketer who plays for Baroda in domestic cricket and Lucknow Super Giants in the IPL. He plays as an all-rounder who bats left-handed and bowls slow left-arm orthodox.
He was born on March 24, 1991 to Himanshu Pandya and Nalini Pandya in Choryasi village in Surat, Gujarat. His younger brother Hardik Pandya is also an international cricketer.
He studied at MK High School in Vadodara but dropped out of school to focus on his cricket career.
At the 2016 IPL auction, he was bought by Mumbai Indians for ₹2 crore. Pandya brothers became the first set of brothers ever to play in an IPL match for the same team in 2016.
Krunal Pandya got married to Pankhuri Sharma on December 27, 2017.
At the 2018 IPL auction, he was bought again by Mumbai Indians for ₹8.8 crore.
He made his international debut for the Indian cricket team on 4 November 2018 in a T20I match against West Indies at Kolkata. He took 1 wicket after giving away only 15 runs in his 4 overs and scored an unbeaten 21 runs off 9 balls. India won the match by 5 wickets.
He made his ODI debut for India on 23 March 2021 against England in Pune. He scored 58 not out off 31 balls. His fifty was the fastest half-century by a cricketer on ODI debut, coming from just 26 balls.
In 2021, cricketer Deepak Hooda pulled himself out of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and wrote a letter to Baroda Cricket Association (BCA) accusing Krunal Pandya of using "abusive language" and "threatening to end his career".
"At this moment, I am demoralised, depressed and under pressure. As from last some days and at least from last couple of days, my team captain Mr Kurnal Pandiya is using abusing language to me in front of my teammates and also other states teams who have come for participation at Reliance stadium Vadodara.
Today I was practising in nets and doing my preparation for tomorrow's game with the permission of Head Coach Mr.Prabhkar. Then Krunal came in nets and started misbehaving (bad) language with me. I told him that I'm doing my preparation with the permission of Head coach. He told me that 'I'm the captain, Who is the head coach? I am the overall of Baroda team'. Then he stopped my practice showing his Dada Giri.
He is threatening me (saying) how will you play for Baroda. I have never seen such an unhealthy atmosphere in my cricketing career till date,"
Hooda wrote.
He was bought by the Lucknow Super Giants for ₹8.25 crores in the 2022 IPL Auction.
His father, Himanshu Pandya had a small car finance business in Surat which he was forced to shut down due to financial problem. He moved to Vadodara and enrolled both of his sons, Hardik and Krunal into Kiran More's cricket academy. Himanshu Pandya died in January 2021, following a cardiac arrest.
Kiran More used to call Pandya brothers as "Maggi brothers" because they used to eat maggi to kill their hunger.
