Gujarat Titans (GT) captain Hardik Pandya recently shared heartwarming pictures with MS Dhoni ahead of his team's much-awaited clash against Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
Both Pandya and MS Dhoni share a great camaraderie off the field and have often been spotted hanging out together. The talismanic all-rounder seemed all smiles as he caught up with the veteran wicketkeeper at the IPL team hotel.
Hardik Pandya captioned the post:
"My main man ❤️🧿".
Meanwhile, there were a lot of question marks regarding Pandya's fitness prior to the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL 2022). However, the 28-year-old has silenced his critics with his inspiring all-round performances.
The swashbuckling batter has amassed 228 runs from five appearances in this year's cash-rich league. He has slammed two stunning half-centuries in the latest edition and has a magnificent batting average of 76.00.
Much to the delight of fans, Pandya has also resumed his bowling. He has managed to pick up four wickets in IPL 2022 at an impressive economy rate of 7.57.
