‘This one is for my dad’: Krunal Pandya breaks down in tears after smashing fastest 50 by ODI debutant

“This one is for my dad. It was very emotional,” is all Krunal Pandya could manage in the interview with Murali Kartik after smashing 58 off 31 balls in the 1st ODI vs England on Tuesday. His innings, coming on his debut, was the fastest by a debutant in the history of ODI cricket. As Krunal broke down in tears, Kartik asked him to take his time. Krunal then asked for the interview to be cut short and the cameras moved away from him. “The emotions well up. He has lost his father just months ago, so the emotions are raw. It was great of Murali Kartik to not carry on with the proceedings and allow him to go and prepare to bowl,” said Sunil Gavaskar a little later.
