The former India cricketer and one of the best fast bowlers the country has ever produced Zaheer Khan celebrated his 41st birthday on Monday. The cricketing fraternity was busy wishing him on the special occasion and many of the Indian players came up with wishes thanking Zaheer for mentoring them. However, Hardik Pandya‘s message to the birthday boy stole the limelight in the end.
The star Indian all-rounder hilariously posted a video of smashing Zaheer Khan out of the park in one of the matches. And Hardik quirkily also hoped that the speedster also hits it out of the ground someday. The wish was definitely a unique one and it left the Indian fans in splits. In the video, Hardik had as usual gone back to his crease to slam the length ball from Zaheer over the deep mid-wicket boundary.
“Happy birthday Zak … Hope you smash it out of the park like I did here @ImZaheer,” Hardik Pandya wrote in his birthday wish for Zaheer.

Pandya gets a perfect response from his senior mate
Well, the shot from Hardik Pandya was definitely a superb one and no wonder it went for a six. But Zaheer Khan also came up with a fantastic response while thanking the 25-year-old. Zaheer duly admitted that he can never match Hardik’s exceptional batting skills but didn’t forget to remind his junior about what had happened off the very next delivery in the same game.
“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,” Zaheer’s response read.

While Zaheer Khan is being honest with Hardik Pandya stating that he can never match his batting skills. But the pacer was never a mug with the bat and boasted a high score of 75 in Tests. He also scored three half-centuries in his Test career and also played a few valuable knocks for India in the limited-overs format. No wonder, he was the best left-arm bowler of the world during his playing days and his 610 international wickets prove the same.
