India’s all-rounder Hardik Pandya recently celebrated his birthday. Pandya turned 25 years on 11th of October. In fact, Pandya spent some quality time with his family and close friends on his birth anniversary. Meanwhile, Hardik Pandya is currently recuperating from a lower back injury.
Pandya had suffered a blow to his back while delivering a ball in the group stage match against Pakistan. The Indian all-rounder had looked in considerable pain as he was taken off the field with the help of a stretcher. Thus, Pandya was ruled out from the ongoing Test series against Windies.
In fact, the Indian all-rounder could not find his place in the first two One-Dayers squad of Team India for the five-match series against the Windies.
Meanwhile, Pandya is not expected to get his chance in the remaining matches of the limited overs series. Pandya is an integral part of the Indan team especially in the limited overs format of the game.
He has done well in the white ball version, however, he is still a work in progress in the red ball format of the game. Pandya had also scalped a five-wicket haul in the third Test match against England.
Meanwhile, Pandya celebrated his birthday with his close friend from the Bollywood industry. The Bollywood actress Karishma Tanna took to her Instagram handle to share a picture with the cricketer and wish her friend. She called Pandya as her Gujarati friend.
The actress post read as, “Happy bday @hardikpandya93 My gujju buddy! #ktians #karishmatanna#birthday #gujjuthing.”
