Hardik Pandya struggled with injuries throughout 2019 and it was a year that never really got going for him. Since 2018, he hasn’t played a Test and to make things worse, he failed to score runs in the ICC World Cup 2019 semi-final. Ever since then, he didn’t play in any further ODI games for the team and he was last seen donning the Indian colours during a T20I match against South Africa a few months ago.
Since then he was nurturing his injury and was waiting for his turn to play for India. Besides all unfortunate events in Hardik Pandya’s cricketing career, there was something else that kept him in good mental condition and that is his love life. He was spotted with Natasa Stankovic a few times in the last couple of months.

Hardik Pandya came up with a special post on social media. He also shared a lovely picture with Natasa where they were seen holding each other hand-in-hand. By posting this, he made his relationship public.
‘Starting the year with my firework,’ an excerpt from Hardik Pandya’s post read. He also shared a string of pictures and videos on the micro-blogging platform, Instagram. In these images, both Hardik Pandya and Natasa Stankovic can be seen showing their engagement rings.
