Hardik Pandya, the captain of the Gujarat Titans in the IPL 2023, took some time off from his busy schedule to teach his son Agastya about animals from a book. In a video shared on social media, Hardik can be seen kissing and hugging his son at the end of the clip. The heartwarming moment was captioned by Hardik as “Learning and growing every single day.”
The Gujarat Titans have been performing well this season and are looking to defend their title. In their recent match against the Lucknow Super Giants, Wriddhiman Saha and Shubman Gill put up a dominating batting display to guide the Titans to a huge 56-run victory. They built a 142-run partnership before skipper Hardik Pandya came in to play a quick cameo of 25 off 15 balls to keep the Titans on track for the biggest score at the venue.
In reply, Lucknow got off to a strong start with Kyle Mayers and Quinton de Kock racking up 72 runs in the Powerplay. However, after Mayers’ dismissal, the scoring rate slowed down, and Lucknow lost wickets at regular intervals. De Kock put up a fight with 70 runs, but no other batter managed to stay long on the crease. Ayush Badoni did get away a few lusty blows, but it was too late to resurrect the innings as Lucknow suffered a big defeat.
Overall, Hardik Pandya’s heartwarming moment with his son Agastya shows that he is not just a talented cricketer but also a loving father.
