The warriors are born when their parents give in everything to support their child and their dreams. Indian cricketer, Hardik Pandya too became a marvel when his father had decided to motivate him and had allowed him to follow his passion. Hardik’s father, Himanshu ji had a small car finance business in Surat, but he had shut it down and had moved to Vadodara to help his sons, Hardik and Krunal follow their dreams. He had enrolled his both sons to Kiran More’s cricket academy in Vadodara so that they can get better training facilities and refine their cricketing skills, and rest as they say is history!
