On the New Year’s Eve, Hardik met Union Home Minister Amit Shah at his residence on Saturday ahead of Sri Lanka’s Tour to India. All-rounder’s brother Krunal Pandya too accompanied him for the meeting.

Pandya was recently made captain of India’s T20 team by the BCCI for Sri Lanka tour. A three-match T20 and ODI series will be played between India and Sri Lanka. The limited overs series will start from 3rd January, 2023.

“Thank you for inviting us to spend invaluable time with you Honourable Home Minister Shri @AmitShah Ji. It was an honour and privilege to meet you,” tweeted Hardik Pandya.
