The flamboyant Indian all-rounder, Hardik Pandya has often been described by fans using several interesting adjectives which either correspond to his personality or his the way in which he plays his game. However, rarely has the all-rounder been described as “glamorous”, which was the case when his Mumbai Indians teammate Jasprit Bumrah was asked to provide a one-word description for Hardik.
In a video posted by the Mumbai Indians (MI) on their Twitter handle, describing the all-rounder in a word, Bumrah said (with a laugh), “Glamorous. You tell him that I said glamorous”.

in the video, Hardik was then shown all dressed up in fancy clothes, with a guitar in his hand further supporting the description by Jasprit Bumrah. The all-rounder drew a lot of compliments earlier in the video from head coach Mahela Jayawardene, Director of Cricket Operations Zaheer Khan and bowling coach Shane Bond.
While Jayawardene described him as a “Character”, Zaheer followed it up by terming Hardik as a ball of “Energy”. Bond was next in line, hailing the all-rounder as a “Legend”, before Bumrah’s remark. The video ends with batsman Aditya Tare calling Hardik a “Rockstar”, with the cricketer even shown playing the guitar while singing along.
Bumrah and Hardik will now be seen back in action, during the upcoming away tour of Australia. Both the players will be high on energy and positivity, having been a part of the MI side as they won their 5th title in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020.
The tour of Australia will be commencing with a three-match ODI series. The ODI matches will be followed up the same number of T20I matches. The tour will conclude with a four-match Test series.
