Newbies Gujarat Titans (GT) won the Indian Premier League (IPL) title in their maiden season with all-rounder Hardik Pandya leading his team to an emphatic seven-wicket victory over the 2008 champions Rajasthan Royals (RR).
After the cricketing action was done and dusted in Ahmedabad, Hardik’s wife Natasa Stankovic came down to the field and embraced her husband. Natasa was visibly emotional after witnessing Hardik lifting the coveted trophy.

Speaking at the post-match conference after IPL 2022 triumph, Hardik said: “She is someone who is very emotional, she gets very happy when she sees me doing well. She has seen me go through a lot of things; she has kind of seen me putting hard yards no matter what happens. I have worked genuine hard; I do not speak much about it but she knows how much hard work goes behind the scenes.”
“My family has always been my strong pillar. My brother Krunal, my sister-in-law Pankhuri and my other brother Vaibhav. A lot of people who have been part of me and my wife, and my son, they have been fantastic in making sure that I stay in the best frame of mind and you know, whenever the crunch situation comes and whenever I am playing, it kind of helps me because I know my family is there to support me no matter what happens. My brother as well cried when I called him, my sister-in-law also cried, they are the tears of happiness which is something fantastic. I live on and I feed on love which I keep getting from my family,” he added.
