Indian cricketer Hardik Pandya faced backlash from the cricket fans after he tweeted wishes for former bowler, Zaheer Khan. However, in a cheeky reply, Khan came up with a witty response to Pandya’s tweet.
Former left-arm pacer who turned 41 on Monday, was flooded with wishes on Twitter from his earlier teammates and current Indian players, including Pandya’s wish. But Pandya being Pandya, once again got trolled by Zaheer’s fans. This is what Hardik had quoted on Monday along with a video of him smashing Zaheer for a six during a match.
Happy birthday Zak … Hope you smash it out of the park like I did here Zaheer Khan

A large number of netizens found Pandya`s wish ‘disrespectful and embarrassing’. However, the very sporting Zaheer Khan responded to Hardik Pandya’s birthday wish the next day, which read,
Hahahaha….thank you for the wishes @hardikpandya7 my batting skills can never be as good as yours but the birthday was as good as the next delivery you faced from me in this match.
