Hardik Pandya’s engagement announcement becomes a meme material

The New Year started on a joyous note for Hardik Pandya as he announced his engagement with girlfriend and actress Natasa Stankovic. The duo confirmed the news of their special moments on social media by posting pictures and videos.

The Indian all-rounder posted a video in which he can be seen proposing to Natasa. He captioned the video, “Main tera, Tu meri jaane, saara Hindustan. 01.01.2020 #engaged.” The duo got engaged in Dubai while taking a ferry ride.


Natasa also shared some photos from the day and the couple seen spending some quality time on a ferry.

As soon as the pictures and videos surfaced online, the netizens were quick to congratulate the cricketer with quirky comments and memes.

Here are some memes that were trending on Twitter after the announcement:





Indian skipper Virat Kohli also extended his warm wishes to the right-hand batsman and noted that this was a pleasant surprise from him.

Youngest of the Pandya brothers has not played a single game since last year. He suffered a back injury which kept him out of the game after the World Cup. The right-hand batsman underwent surgery and is now keeping up well. Pandya’s last game for the Men in Blue came against South Africa in September last year.

Pandya would be looking to make a comeback in the team for the upcoming tour of New Zealand. The Indian team would love to have a genuine all-rounder like Hardik in the side. His explosive batting skills can prove to be quite lethal for the opposition. Indian team would also want their ace all-rounder to get into the groove before the T20I World Cup starts in Australia later this year.

India will start their T20 World Cup journey against South Africa on October 24, followed by the matches with England on November 1 and Afghanistan on November.
