Hardik Pandya has established himself as one of the most prolific all-rounders in Indian cricket. He has also stabilised his personal life following his marriage to Natasa Stankovic while enjoying his fatherhood with his new-born son, Agastya.
Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya has sealed his place in Team India, especially in the limited-overs circuit. Same has been the case in his personal life, following his marriage to Serbia-based Bollywood actress, Natasa Stankovic.
The couple got hitched in 2020, during the lockdown, after dating for almost a couple of years. In June, their son, Agastya, was born and has since become an internet sensation.
Recently, Pandya shared a picture with Agastya, who happened to be enjoying his first flight. In the photo, the new-born is seen sitting on Pandya’s lap, as both smile at the camera. Pandya captioned the post, “My boy’s first flight ❤️“.
Pandya is lately coming off a personal tragedy after his father, Himanshu passed away a couple of weeks back. He had paid tribute to him by sharing a series of personal pictures with him on Instagram.
Pandya is gearing up for a return to international cricket, as he would feature in the upcoming four-Test series against England, at home. He last played the limited-overs leg in Australia, where he was heavily impactful, helping the side win the Twenty20 International title.
Pandya had limited himself from cricket workload, especially in Tests, as he did not feature in India’s victorious outing during the just-concluded Border-Gavaskar Trophy, Down Under. He did so to give his just-healed back proper time to rest, as he underwent surgery for the same in 2019.
