India’s former left-arm seam bowler, Zaheer Khan celebrated his 41st Birthday on 7th October 2019. He received kind wishes from the cricket fraternity, but India’s all-rounder, Hardik Pandya came out with a cringy birthday wish. He posted a video of his batting in which he smashed Zaheer Khan for a six in a local game and said, “Happy Birthday ZAK, hope you smash it out of the park like I did it here”.
Zaheer Khan came up with a countering reply to Hardik’s birthday wish and said, “Thank you for the wishes Hardik Pandya 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”. Zaheer took his wish on a very lighter note but the public took jibe at the Indian all-rounder.
They mocked him for wishing the Indian legend in a very odd way as the fans did not like this approach from Pandya. Zaheer Khan was a great servant of the Indian cricket. He acknowledged himself in the cricket world with some exquisite seam bowling throughout his career, therefore the legendary cricketer has some respect to be given.
