Unki masala news ki waat lag gyi
Only last month, Pandya had to give another clarification after being linked to Bollywood actress Parineeti Chopra.
A Twitter conversation between Indian cricketer Pandya and Parineeti led to widespread speculation that the two were dating. However, the India all-rounder poured oil on troubled waters by saying he "doesn't even know her properly" and "have never spoken before".
Pandya's on-field stock has been on the upward curve and he received high praise from Team India skipper Virat Kohli for his brilliant performances in the ODI series against the Aussie
Pandya scored 222 runs and also picked up six wickets in the series.
In the first ODI of the series against Australia in Chennai, Pandya not only revived India's innings after being reduced to 87/5, but also took the team to a competitive total of 281/7 in 50 overs. He used the long handle to good effect and smashed the Aussie bowlers all over the park. He finished with 83 off just 66 balls including 5 huge sixes.
The right-handed hard hitter was promoted to No.4 in the third ODI at Indore and he made full use of the opportunity by scoring 78 off just 72 balls and helped India chase down the 294-run target with ease. The 23-year-old was again sent at the same position in the fourth match at Bengaluru and he smashed 41 again in just 40 balls.
