Hardik Pandya, who recently underwent back surgery, finally has a reason to smile, it seems. The all-rounder turned 26 today. Pandya took to Instagram to give us a glimpse of his birthday cake and the caption read 'Smiling since 93'. Pandya, who's recovering from a back injury, had to sit out of the ongoing India Versus South Africa Test series. Pandya thanked his fans for the good wishes and revealed he would be back on field soon, through his Instagram handle a while back. Mumbai Indian's owner Nita Ambani also visited Pandya in London where the surgery took place.
Hardik's low-key birthday had a red velvet birthday cake, and honestly, we have not stopped drooling ever since the pictures surfaced on the internet. Pandya's rich and decadent-looking birthday cake had a cake topper that read 'Make a Wish' in gold colour, apart from the sparkly birthday candle. The bling factor does not end here. Hardik's snazzy silver jacket is grabbing many eyeballs on the social media platform too.
