Meanwhile, Hardik Pandya himself posted a heartwarming video on his birthday, dedicated to his son. The all-rounder in his post revealed that he was missing his son on the special occasion. “Missing my boy a little bit more on my birthday. The best gift I’ve received,” wrote Hardik in the caption of his post on Instagram.

From being on the verge of getting dropped from the Indian cricket team due to his struggles with the bat and bowl to leading Gujarat Titans to their maiden IPL win in their debut season, the big turnaround was all because of his fitness.

Not only Hardik is winning matches for India with his hard-hitting skills but also has come up with some valuable contributions with his bowling. 

Talking about Hardik’s career, he scored 528 runs in 11 Tests and took 17 wickets. The all-rounder bagged 63 wickets with 2438 runs in 66 ODIs. Hardik has scored 1549 runs in 73 T20I matches and has taken 54 wickets during this period. Talking about IPL, apart from scoring 1535 runs in 107 matches, he has also taken 50 wickets.
