Indian all-terrain Hardik Pandya was criticized for his low performance in the series of tests recently concluded in England that India lost 1-4. Aside from a five-wicket round and a half-century at the Trent Bridge Test, Hardik could not make a big contribution with the bat or the ball in the five-game test series. However, Hardik took Instagram and shared a video of a surprise visit to his father that touched the hearts of his fans. In the video, subtitled "When you surprise dad, # seeinghimafter3month", you can see Hardik waking his father and greeting him with a warm hug. The expression on his father's face tells him how happy he was to see his son.
This is not the first time that Hardik surprises his father. In August of last year, Hardik gave an SUV Jeep Compass to his father when he announced the news with a series of tweets.
An ecstatic and emotional father, he picked up the phone and said "I love you" to Hardik during the video call.
So happy to see his face lit up as if this was the guy who should have all the happiness in life and deserves all the credit, my dad! pic.twitter.com/G55mBHpraw
