Hardik Pandya brings out his fan-moment with moving post for 'Inspiration' MS Dhoni

Hardik Pandya has been in the golden touch with bat in the current edition of Indian Premier League for Mumbai Indians. 

The flamboyance of the Baroda born has been a key point in Mumbai's successful journey this year. Not with the just bat, but with the ball also Hardik has assisted his team in many crucial matches to take them to the victory line.

On Tuesday, Mumbai beat arch-rivals Chennai to enter their fourth final of the big ticket league. After the match, Hardik took to Instagram to post a photo with his idol and Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni. 

"My inspiration, my friend, my brother, my legend @msdhoni," Hardik wrote on his Instagram profile.

In the current edition of IPL, Hardik has emulated Dhoni's trademark shot 'Helicopter Shot' couple of times this season. Even in the group tie against Chennai, the 25-year-old performed the same in front of Dhoni.

Pandya has always shared a warm relation with Dhoni on and off the field and we have seen both of them chilling together quite a few times.

While after a big loss in Qualifier 1 Dhoni didn't mince words at the post-match presentation ceremony and pointed out the reasons that led the team down.

"At home, we had to assess the conditions quickly. We have played 6 to 7 games already, that's the home advantage. We needed to know how the pitch behaves, would it be tacky? Is the ball coming on or not, those were the things we didn't do well, I think the batting needs to get better," said CSK skipper.

Dhoni was particularly critical about the fact that shot selection wasn't the best in many cases during the past few games. 

"These are the best batsmen we have got, it looks like we are batting well, but at times, but in different games, they pull off shots that shouldn't be played. These are the players who we have banked on. They have the experience and they should know to assess the conditions better, hopefully, we will do well in the next game," added Dhoni.
