Agastya, the son of Hardik Pandya and Natasa Stankovic, turned five months old and the Indian all-rounder shared a photo to mark the occasion on Instagram. The stylish all-rounder shared a photo with his partner and son and wrote: “5 months for our boy @natasastankovic__ we are so blessed”. The picture shows Hardik sitting on a chair, with a smiling Agastya on his lap and Natasa posing next to him for a beautiful family photo. Also in the photo was a designer cake, with a reindeer in a Santa hat designed and “Happy 5 months Agastya” written on it.
Hardik became a father on May 30 this year and was unable to spend much time with his son as he wanted to help the UAE to participate in the 2020 Indian Premier League (IPL) in less than a month. Mumbai Indians, led by Rohit Sharma, dominated the tournament and took their fifth IPL title. Hardik was one of the most notable performers for the franchise, scoring fast runs throughout the campaign.
After IPL ended on November 10, Hardik traveled to Australia for the limited-overs series, consisting of three ODIs and an equal number of T20Is. Playing as a specialist batsman, Hardik proved his worth, finishing as the top run getter for India in the ODI series with 210 runs to an astonishing 105 average.
Despite Hardik’s contribution with the bat, India lost the ODI series 2-1, but the visitors came strongly to the T20I series by a similar margin, with Hardik again scoring crucial points on death. Hardik was so impressive that he was named Player of the Series.
Hardik, who was not part of India’s testing team, returned home and has been spending quality time with his family ever since. He recently shared photos of celebrating Christmas with his family dressed in a Santa Claus outfit.
