Krunal Pandya isn't as popular as Hardik. But, according to Sunil Gavaskar, he's performing better than his younger brother this Indian Premier League.

In his column with the Times Of India, Gavaskar compared the two brothers and wrote that Krunal has started this IPL in a better fashion. 

“Krunal has been impressive with his canny left-arm spinners and down the order, he keeps his cool and gets runs at a good clip without hitting the big sixes that his younger brother hits," he said.

 

 

Further pointing out Hardik's flaws as a player, he wrote, “Teams now know not to bring a spinner on when Hardik Pandya is batting, for he can smash them out of the ground. However, he does not find the seamers that easy to belt and so he will be confronted by most captains. Mumbai also must look at their tactic of bringing him on when the field restrictions are in place, for he can be expensive than his brother."

Both Krunal and Hardik form the backbone of the Mumbai Indians line-up and are equally imperative for their captain Rohit Sharma.

But, sadly, Krunal is yet to play for Team India, where Hardik has cemented his place as an all-rounder across as formats.
