After the match when Hardik Pandya was asked about his batting he said, "I am not doing anything special it is same like what you do in some special day, I think differently. I am very positive, if I say truth then it is all about one hit shot. You hit a six and it changes the whole match."
The all-rounder batsman of Mumbai Indians did a fantastic performance in this last match and he made 35 runs on just 20 balls. Even in the bowling, Hardik took 2 wickets on 19 runs in just 4 overs.

Showing happiness towards the purple cap, Hardik Pandya said "This is good but I didn't try it. But this cap will stay with you till you take wickets. Obviously, if there is great bowling then I have to respect it. I can't do anything on it. My game is like that I stay very positive towards it."
