India’s all-rounder Hardik Pandya yesterday clicked a selfie with his love. Now before your mind comes up with all the names that the stylish cricketer has been linked to, then hold your horses! Hardik who is currently in England for the five-match test series was seen bonding with wicket-keeper Dinesh Karthik.
The all-rounder took to social media and was seen chilling with Karthik. But what caught our attention was the caption of the snap which read, “My no. 1 love.” Karthik who appeared on the show Breakfast with Champions a few days ago, revealed that he and Pandya became friends during the Champions Trophy last year.

“I spend a lot of time with Hardik [Pandya] and KL [Rahul]. The first time we played together as a team was in the Champions Trophy last year. He observed me initially but we didn't talk. Just exchanged pleasantries. One day I was just in the gym and he comes to me and says, ‘You're not that bad a guy. Everybody said you're a horrible guy but I think you're a decent guy. And that's how it all started from there’," said Karthik.
Both Hardik Pandya and Dinesh Karthik will play a vital role in the test matches which are scheduled to begin from tomorrow i.e. August 1. Karthik in an interview said that he was excited and nervous to the whites once again. “There is some nervous excitement; it is obviously a big test series for both the teams... Really looking forward towards it. I am sure with two good teams; it will be a good contest,” said the wicket-keeper.
