The Baroda lad did not put an end to his surprise spree with his on field heroics but also took his father by surprise gifting him a car. Hardik's elder brother Krunal, who also plays for Mumbai Indians, took his father to a car showroom. Hardik, who was on a video call from Sri Lanka, was assisting his father and brother in selecting the car. Hardik took to Twitter and shared the video.
"So glad to see his face lit up like that this is the guy who should get all the happiness in life and deserves all the credit, my dad!," the tweet read.
