India’s cricket sensation Hardik Pandya revealed how he came close to get arrested during the West Indies tour earlier this year. On the conversation with Gaurav Kapur in ‘Breakfast with champions’ show, he revealed how Kieron Pollard pulled out a prank perfectly.

“When we went to West Indies, I was with him the whole time. I was roaming about as if I was in India because I knew that he won’t let anything happen to me,” Pandya revealed.

“However, he decided to pull my leg. He called a police officer, who was actually his friend, who tried to arrest me. I knew it was a prank but at one point, things got a little serious. I stayed calm and I thought I would call the Indian team and sort it all out because I haven’t done anything wrong. I figured out it was a prank when I saw the police officer try to call someone while holding the phone upside down with the speaker at the other end.”

The Mumbai Indians team-mates are pretty close and Pandya dubs him as ‘brother from another mother’.

“Pollard asked me why I was calm. I said ‘See Polly, nothing will happen to me if you are around. I am in your city.’ I met everyone at his place. He keeps on going to people’s places, I went everywhere with him. That’s why I call him ‘a brother from another mother’,” he added.


Pandya also shared an image on his Instagram page, calling Pollard’s family, his ‘extended family’
