Hardik Pandya is one of the top all-rounders in world cricket right now. He has also proved himself to be a capable captain after he led his IPL team, Gujarat Titans, to their maiden IPL title in 2022. The Baroda-based all-rounder had a rough childhood and struggled to make ends meet. His family did not have enough money, and there was a time when he survived on instant noodles.

Hardik's journey is the kind of rags to riches where the all-rounder had to pass through his share of hurdles in the quest for glory. Financial constraints served as a deterrent during the player's early days of playing cricket.

The player would survive on noodles both in the morning and evening as the family situation wasn't ideal for him to follow a healthy diet. There were times when Hardik had to borrow cricket equipment from the Baroda Cricket Association (BCA) at the age of 17. Cut to the present scenario, Hardik has a lavish life by the dint of his hard work and determination on the field. His family is settled well with the time the player grew by leaps and bounds.

The Indian vice-captain made the headlines recently for his record-breaking trade from Gujarat Titans to his former franchise Mumbai Indians for a whopping all-cash deal of INR 15 crores (USD 1.8 million). Unsurprisingly, Mumbai Indians have appointed Hardik Pandya as their skipper for IPL 2024.

Hardik Pandya's father's name is Himanshu Pandya. Himanshu used to run a small car finance business in Surat but had to shut it down to move to Baroda to allow his kids to pursue cricket. Hardik was just five when the family moved from Surat to Baroda.

Himanshu had suffered numerous heart attacks during Hardik's playing times and the family was fortunate to take care of his hospital expenses. Himanshu Pandya passed away on January 16, 2021, due to cardiac arrest at the age of 71.
