Hardik Pandya surprises his father by a special gift

India all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who scored his maiden Test century against Sri Lanka in Kandy, found a special way to thank his dad, Himanshu Pandya, for leaving everything to shape the cricketer’s career.

Hardik planned a ‘surprise gift’ with his elder brother Krunal Pandya for their father and said that the way his dad’s face lit up made him cry.

Krunal, who also plays for Mumbai Indians in the IPL, took his father to a car showroom. Meanwhile, Hardik was on a video call from Sri Lanka and assisted his father and brother in selecting the car. When Himanshu Pandya finally agreed to buy a red car, the showroom manager came and said, “This is your car. You are owner”. The emotional father took the phone said, ‘I love you’ to Hardik over the video call.

Hardik later took to Twitter and explained the entire incident in a series of tweets. He also shared a video of the same.

“So glad to see his face lit up like that. Yes, this is the guy who should get all the happiness in life & deserves the credit, my dad! He was the one who left everything what he had for me & krunal pandya and which takes a lot of courage to do.”

“Only for our careers and I can’t thank him enough for all he has done. So that’s a small surprise for him which made me cry. Family is life and special mention to my brother for getting this done when I was not around. Love to all,” Hardik wrote on Twitter.
