In this cricket-obsessed nation, the cricketers are treated no less than demigods. The fans never fail to throw their unwavering support behind them irrespective of the results or any other unwanted situation.

The site of a Sudhir Kumar Chaudhary supporting his favourite player Sachin Tendulkar and the Indian team in a paint-covered body in all weather conditions is enough to prove the extent the fans can go to show their love for the cricketers.

Well, the players also make sure to acknowledge the support. From posing for hundreds of pictures or giving autographs despite being tired after a match to waving to the constant cheers, the Indian cricketers make sure to make their fans’ day. The latest player to show his love for the fans is none other than star all-rounder Hardik Pandya.

The 24-year old posed alongside the fan who came to watch the third T20 International between India and Sri Lanka in Mumbai on Sunday (December 24), clad in the Indian tri-colour with Hardik and his jersey number written over his body.

Pandya also took to Twitter to post the photo and leave a special message for all the fans, writing:

Playing for India ?? is a special feeling in itself but with your cheers and support… it becomes more special! Thank you everyone for coming out in numbers and supporting #TeamIndia in every corner of the ?.

Meanwhile, India defeated Sri Lanka by five wickets in the last T20I to clean sweep the three-match series. After being asked to bat first, Sri Lanka could only manage 135 for seven in the allotted 20 overs. In reply, India overcame a spirited bowling performance from the visitors to chase down the total with four balls remaining.
