Legend Zaheer Khan celebrated his 41st birthday recently. While the cricket fraternity and the fans flooded him with wholesome and heartwarming wishes, Hardik Pandya being Hardik Pandya decided to go with a little banter instead.
Pandya boy tweeted a video of him hitting a six off Zaheer Khan’s bowling and captioned it, “Happy birthday Zak … Hope you smash it out of the park like I did here.”

However, people thought it was disrespectful and completely unnecessary. Which kinda sorta even makes sense given Zaheer is way senior to him, but then again, we don’t know the kind of rapport these two share.
Regardless, Hardik Pandya, who’s famous for his kaafi “chhichora behavior,” invited a major backlash after posting this video and now he’s being trolled, which might remind him of the Koffee With Karan days. Here’s how they replied:
Zaheer Khan was winning the WC for India when you were dancing in the background of Meri Gully Mein music video. Stay in your lane. https://t.co/Y842A8HU1W

Money and popularity keep testing your class. Hardik has been failing every time! Sad. https://t.co/hRiuQ0lPea

Despite being a bowler he has 53 gorgeous international sixes. He has smashed bowlers like Brett Lee , Shoaib Akhtar out of the park. He would have crushed your toe with an inswinging Yorker if u played him in his prime. He is a legend.
