Xtra Time Web Desk: Team India’s maverick all-rounder Hardik Pandya turns 29 today. The dashing all-rounder who is now with the Indian team for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022, shared a cute video of his son Agastya on his birthday.
Sharing the video on his social media handles, Hardik wrote, “Missing my boy a little bit more on my birthday. The best gift I’ve received.”
For India to do well in the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022, Hardik’s form will be extremely crucial. The lanky all-rounder has been going through the form of his life, ever since he made a comeback after the break from career threatening back injury.
The younger of the Pandya brothers can turn out to be the X factor in upcoming T20 World Cup 2022. Hardik has played a huge role in Team India’s dominance in T20 format in recent times. Since, leading Gujarat Titans to its maiden title in IPL 2022, Hardik has established himself as a game-changer in the Indian team. A successful tour to Ireland and England, followed by a good show in Asia Cup and home series against Australia and South Africa, Hardik Pandya has been a consistent performer for Team India.
With Hardik now bowling regularly, the team management will have a sixth bowling option which India missed during the last edition in UAE. He can also be used as a floater in the batting order which will be a huge advantage for Rohit Sharma.
One of the most impressive things about Hardik’s resurgence has been his emergence as a responsible batter with the ability to change gears in the death overs, where he can showcase the power-hitting he is renowned for. Moreover, his bowling is returning to its best after he had dropped some pace due to injury
Here’s wishing the man from Chorvasi Gujarat all success in life ahead.
