Star Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya recently thanked the doctors and the hospital staff for taking good care of his wife Natasa and their newborn baby. Hardik shared pictures with the staff and mentioned that he would be forever grateful to them.
The adorable couple were blessed with a little boy on July 30 in Anand, Gujarat. The Pandya family decided to have the baby outside of Mumbai due to the rising Coronavirus cases in the economic capital of the country.
The pictures of Hardik’s baby have been capturing the limelight and doing rounds on social media platforms. Hardik’s elder brother Krunal is often seen posting photos with his nephew, and recently he again shared a cute picture on Instagram. Krunal was seen holding the baby with a caption reading, “Let’s Talk Cricket.”
Fans widely acknowledged the moment as they posted numerous heart emojis. However, one reaction captured all the attention and that came from none other than Hardik’s dear friend and teammate KL Rahul.
Rahul asked Krunal to make the baby boy a fast-bowling all-rounder. Apparently, it was a dig at both Pandya brothers, as Krunal happens to be a left-arm spin all-rounder whereas Hardik is a medium-pace bowling all-rounder.
“Please tell him to become a fast-bowling all-rounder”, responded Rahul.
Krunal, Hardik and Rahul are bracing themselves for their next assignments in the Indian Premier League (IPL) starting from September 19 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The Pandya brothers will be hoping to exhibit their all-round performance for four-time champions Mumbai Indians (MI), while the Karnataka stalwart Rahul is all to lead Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) for its maiden IPL triumph.
