The Story Back Then And The Trolls
India’s controversial all-rounder, Hardik Pandya has always hogged the limelight in the most flamboyant fashions. Be it his exploits with the bat on the field, his bowling adventures, his hairstyles or his behaviour off the field, Pandya loves to have the spotlight on him. His personal life and romances have also been of keen interest to the media and fans and they follow him around wherever he goes.
Keeping that in mind, it is not just limited to his physical presence, which is seen in the games or on the news. His fans and other audiences follow him around on social media as well. He is quite a popular figure amongst the fans and he is mostly liked by them.
Recently, the Mumbai Indians star shared a photograph of him wearing the new Byju’s jersey of the Indian team. In case you did not know, Byju’s has replaced Oppo as the primary sponsor of the Indian Cricket Team. From India versus South Africa series, educational application, Byju’s will be superseding Oppo on the crest of the national team jersey.
Hardik Pandya, who proudly confessed on the ‘Koffee with Karan’ show that he had failed to clear the 10th standard, shared an image of him donning on the Byju’s jacket only to be trolled by the cricket fans.
Here are some of the best trolls post this event, as the fans on social media just couldn’t having fun at his expense-
Byju’s branding on Hardik Pandya who is actually proud of failing 10th class is another level ironic https://t.co/DoSSAC9A5x

What Next For Pandya?
Though Hardik Pandya has been a match-winner for the Indian team and a probable finisher that India is looking up to after the valediction of Yuvraj Singh and Mahendra Singh Dhoni, his off-field antics have fomented conflicting sentiments about him.
Hardik Pandya will be in action playing for the Indian team against South Africa in the T20I series which will start from today. South Africa’s tour of India includes a 3-match T20I series which will be followed by a 3-match Test series. Pandya and his brother, Krunal Pandya will be the key to India’s success in the shorter format.
Hardik was out with an injury after the recently concluded World Cup and this series will mark his return soon. He further had a successful surgery and is slowly recovering to regain full fitness in the days to come.
It will be interesting to see how the Indian audience reacts when Hardik Pandya actually wears a Byju’s India jersey on the field. Recently, Hardik became the nexus of several memes that took the social media by storm after he donned on the Byju’s jacket.
Besides, Virat Kohli recently stated that MS Dhoni is not retiring from international cricket after the rumours that had flooded the internet because of his throwback tweet. This is a good sign for the Indian team because they need the experience that Dhoni has. Both Dhoni and Kohli have been influential in shaping Pandya’s career in one way or another. It will be really good for the upcoming talent to have them both around.
