India all-rounder Hardik Pandya has made a return to the T20I side for the three-match series against South Africa starting from September 15 (Sunday). Ahead of the start of the series, Pandya was at the receiving end of the trolls after his recent post on Instagram.
Pandya was out of the side for the series against West Indies. Pandya copped up a few blows during the World Cup and the selection panel headed by MSK Prasad decided to rest him from the series against the Caribbeans. During this period, Pandya worked hard on his fitness to make a comeback to the team.
The first of three-match series will take place in Dharamsala on Sunday. The players gathered in Delhi to attend DDCA’s annual event where the body unveiled one of Feroz Shah Kotla stands in the name of India skipper Virat Kohli. The team then took a flight to reach the venue earlier today.
Hardik Pandya posted a selfie on Instagram with the team India jacket with India’s new title sponsors’ logo in it. Meanwhile, learning app BUJY’s have taken over from Oppo as the main sponsor for the Men in Blues in July.
“On the go! When you travel, a selfie is a must,” Hardik captioned the image.
Soon after Hardik Pandya posted the image o social media, the fans came up with hilarious replies and memes to troll the Indian cricketer.
Here is how the Twitter reacted:

Byju's branding on Hardik Pandya who is actually proud of failing 10th class is another level ironic https://t.co/DoSSAC9A5x
