Seems like Hardik Pandya has become the favorite child of controversies and trolls. Recently, he invited the wrath of fans after putting up a distasteful birthday wish to former fast bowling great Zaheer Khan.
The 2011 World Cup-winning pacer turned 41 on Monday and Hardik wished the former pacer by uploading a video of him hitting a six off Zaheer during a domestic competition. Hardik’s post read: “Happy birthday Zak … Hope you smash it out of the park like I did there.”
This cheeky birthday wish didn’t go down well with netizens and they slammed Hardik for his comment. The star India all-rounder was hurled with negative comments on social media.

Despite being a bowler he has 53 gorgeous international sixes. He has smashed bowlers like Brett Lee , Shoaib Akhtar out of the park. He would have crushed your toe with an inswinging Yorker if u played him in his prime. He is a legend.

Hardik recently underwent successful surgery in London for an acute lower-back injury that may force him out of action for a longer period. “Surgery done successfully. Extremely grateful to everyone for your wishes. Will be back in no time! Till then miss me,” Hardik posted a message with a picture on his Twitter handle on Saturday.

Hardik is expected to be out of action for five months. The Baroda all-rounder is the second key member in the Indian after premier speedster Jasprit Bumrah, who has been ruled out of the ongoing Test series against South Africa due to stress fracture in his lower back.
