The Mumbai Indians have had a near perfect season. One area where MI have always stuttered his perfecting their team combination, taking almost half a season to figure it out. But things have been different this time round. A lot of thought went into how the team should shape up, and the management wasn’t afraid to make some bold calls right at the start, rather than waiting for a slump to ring in the changes.
And the results are for everyone to see, Mumbai have topped the group stage and will be playing a home qualifier in their bid to reach the final. But all is not well in the Mumbai Indians camp, as the Pandya brothers indulged in a ugly twitter spat following their last group game.
It all started with Hardik tweeting about how the ones closest to you are sometimes the ones who hurt you the most.
Sometimes in life, people closest to you end up disappointing you the most. Not cool, bro!

While nothing seemed to be conclusive from this tweet as to whom it was addressed to, Krunal Pandya’s reply sparked a controversy, as it almost seemed clear that Hardik’s tweet was directed towards his elder brother Krunal.
Krunal tweeted saying that “I am bade bhaiyya for a reason. Let’s not make this a big issue”
.@hardikpandya7, this shouldn't have happened in the first place. I am bade bhaiyya for a reason. Let's not make this a big issue!

While there was nothing conclusive from the tweets of both the Pandya brothers, as to what the fight was about, Virender Sehwag somehow reached to the conclusion that it could be ‘money’ that the Pandya brothers were fighting about.
He then urged them to stop making a fuss about it and move on, as greater things awaited them.

The reason for Hardik’s tweet is still an enigma but we hope that all is well in the Pandya camp.
