Meanwhile, it was an emotional and inspiring journey for the IPL 2022 winning captain in the tournament, from making a remarkable comeback as an all-rounder to winning a trophy while leading a side for the first time, and it was clearly seen when he hugged his wife Natasa Stankovic, who seemed emotional, at the packed Narendra Modi Stadium on Sunday.
After winning the final, Hardik exchanged pleasantries with his GT teammates in the dugout, and then he slowly made his way into the playing area, and the first thing he did was hug his wife Natasa Stankovic at that time, the couple were emotional.
It was a long emotional hug and it seemed like all those emotions that Pandya didn’t show on the field throughout the IPL 15 have come out after hugging his wife.
