Indian international cricketer Hardik Pandya is celebrating his 25th birthday today and wishes for the young sportsman have been flooding the interwebs. The cricketer, who shares his birthday with Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan, seems to be celebrating his 25th birthday in style. He posted several pictures and videos of the newest member of his family - his pet dog Bentley. Pandya's cute furry baby has been posing for his dad's camera as the former smiles away to the double celebration of his birthday and adding a new member to his family. "My new Bentley.. Sustainable, environmentally friendly, runs only on love.. Welcome to the family Bentley Pandya. We shall share our birthday now," said Pandya on Instagram about his very first picture with his four-legged companion. It looks like Pandya kick-started his birthday celebrations with too much sweetness - and we're not just referring to the dog.
Hardik Pandya's love for high-end brands is well known and his 25th birthday cake was all about them too. The flashy polka-dotted cake had a figurine of the good-looking sportsman, surrounded by bags of several luxury brands. "Happy Birthday Hardik", was scrawled in golden frosting along the base of the beautiful cake.

Here's Pandya cutting the cake with his family:
Doesn't that look absolutely amazing? Compared to last year, Hardik's birthday this year seem to have been celebrated in relative peace and quiet. Remember when a video of the entire Indian cricket team plastering Hardik Pandya with his birthday cake, had gone viral online?

Now, that is one crazy birthday party! This year, an unfortunate back injury prevented Pandya from getting too wild on his birthday. The India all-rounder was stretchered off field after sustaining an acute lower back injury, during the Asia Cup group league encounter against Pakistan, and he is currently at home, recovering from it. His fellow cricketers also wished him a happy birthday and a speedy recovery. Well, we wish you recover and get back on the field soon to do what you do best - enthral and entertain us! Here's wishing you a very happy 25th birthday, Hardik Pandya.
