Hardik Pandya: Indian All-Rounder tweets his 16-year-old picture celebrating India’s 2011 Cricket World Cup win; compares it with the present
Flamboyant Indian All-Rounder and a vital cog of the Indian wheel this World Cup, Hardik Pandya has come up with a ‘memory down lane’ moment on social media.
The 25-year-old cricketer after having reached the World Cup venue along with the entire team on Thursday, posted a wonderful picture on his social media handles, depicting the beautiful journey he has had thus far since his early years as a cricketer.
The all-rounder from Baroda is certainly ‘living his dream’, of playing for the Indian National side as that is what perhaps, Pandya wanted to say out loud to the entire world- to go for your dreams and live it.
What did Pandya tweet?
Hardik Pandya has posted a couple of pictures on his Twitter handle and has compared the two by placing them one above the other.
The upper picture depicts a 16-year-old Hardik celebrating India’s 2011 Cricket World Cup win, along with his group of friends. Akin his 6 other friends in the picture, he is visibly very pumped up after the famous India victory by 6 wickets at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
Below the same picture, we can see the 25-year-old Pandya, now with the Indian Cricket team, who has arrived at the World Cup venue to partake in the 2019 World Cup. He is seen taking a selfie along with the veteran wicket-keeper batsman MS Dhoni, opener Shikhar Dhawan, and pacer Jasprit Bumrah who complete the perfect click.
The caption above the picture read- “From cheering and celebrating India’s World Cup triumph in 2011 to representing #TeamIndia in World Cup 2019, it has been a dream come#cwc19”.
