On January 1, Pandya had announced his engagement with Serbian actress Natasa Stankovic on social media.

Pandya had shared the news with a few pictures and a video on Instagram, saying: "Mai tera, Tu meri jaane, saara Hindustan. 01.01.2020 #engaged."

The cricketer-actor pair never fails to charm their fans with lovable pictures and wishes for each other on social media.

Pandya, who underwent a surgery last year, was left out of the New Zealand tour after failing a fitness test.

Playing for Reliance 1 against CAG in a Group C encounter of the 16th DY Patil T20 Cup on Tuesday, Pandya scored 105 runs off just 39 balls, helping his team post 252/5 in 20 overs.

With the impressive knock, Pandya made a strong case for his inclusion in India's squad for the upcoming three-match One-day International series against South Africa.

The HPCA Stadium in Dharamsala will host the first ODI on March 12, followed by matches in Lucknow and Kolkata on March 15 and 18 respectively.
