Hardik Pandya successfully underwent surgery for treating his lower-back injury and vowed to make a comeback soon. Pandya took to social media and shared a picture of himself post-surgery. Fans and cricket enthusiasts were elated to receive an update on the cricketer's health status and many of them came forward to wish him a speedy recovery. The Baroda all-rounder was also seen wearing an exotic watch when he had shared a picture of himself straight from his hospital bed in the United Kingdom. However, Hardik Pandya also managed to wish Zaheer Khan who had turned 41 on Monday.
Birthday wishes had poured in for Zaheer Khan from all corners. Be it from the fans or the cricketing fraternity, everyone came forward to wish him and Hardik Pandya was one of them as well. Both 'Zak' and Pandya are associated with the most successful IPL team Mumbai Indians. Hardik is one of the most valuable players while Zaheer is the Director of Cricket Operations of MI. Pandya took to social media and had a cheeky wish for Zaheer Khan. The all-rounder wrote that he hoped Khan smashes it out of the park like he had done. Hardik then posted a video of him hitting Zaheer out of the park in a domestic game.

Hardik Pandya got a much-deserved break after ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 where India had finished as the semi-finalists. He did not take part in India's successful Caribbean tour that had succeeded the quadrennial event. Pandya made his comeback in the three-match T20I series against South Africa last month. Nonetheless, he could not make much of an impact as he could only manage two wickets and 14 runs in the two matches that he had played as the series was tied at 1-1 with one match being washed out. As per reports, the all-rounder will not be playing the away series against Bangladesh and it is still unknown about when he will make his comeback.
