Natasa Stankovic cries while hugging her husband Hardik Pandya
After Gujarat Titans’ win, the power couple hugged each other in delight but Natasa broke down in tears during the moment. Hardik could be seen consoling her as the couple hugged each other.
Hardik Pandya went through a lot prior to the IPL 2022 as he didn’t play any cricket post-the T20 World Cup. He struggled with injuries and spent the time away from the game before Gujarat Titans announced him the skipper for the newly-inducted team ahead of the new edition of the mega-event.
Not only did Hardik Pandya make an outstanding contribution with his performances, but his captaincy also stood out throughout the tournament. Knowing all the struggles his husband went through, Natasa Stankovic probably broke down after getting emotional.

With the T20 World Cup lined up later this year, the biggest positive for the Indian cricket from the IPL 2022 is – Hardik Pandya, the all-rounder, is back.
The destructive all-rounder looked very assured with the bat as he amassed 487 runs in 15 matches at an average of 44.27 and a strike rate of 131.26. While he didn’t bowl a lot, his performance with the ball in the final comes as a breath of fresh air for the Indian faithful. Pandya scalped 8 wickets in 10 innings at an economy rate of 7.27, including the match-winning spell of 3/17 in the final.
