Cute Scene Caught Between Hardik Pandya and his Son
In a heartwarming video that has taken the internet by storm, the two-year-old son of Gujarat Giants' skipper Hardik Pandya, Agastya, can be seen giving an epic reply to his father when asked if he wants to bat.
The video (which was shared by the Gujarat Giants on Thursday) shows the father-son duo playing cricket in their hotel corridor. During that time, Hardik and opener Shubman Gill was present for an ad shoot.
In the video, Agastya can be seen bowling to his father, who then asks him if he wants to bat. However, the little champion replies with an innocent yet hilarious answer: "It's too big bat." He then goes on to say that he would like to continue bowling instead.
The caption of the video sums it up perfectly: "Like father, like son." The video has since gone viral on social media, with fans being quick to praise the Ahmedabad-based team for sharing the adorable video, some dropping hilarious comments.
One fan even suggested that Agastya could be the replacement for top Indian bowler Jasprit Bumrah when he retires!
