The young Indian team has seen the rise of many potential superstars, which has enriched the national team with wide number of choices.
Cricketers like Yuzvendra Chahal, Hardik Pandya and Axar Patel are an evidence of that. And with the rise of such youngsters, the energy of the team has lifted, resulting in brilliant performances on a consistent basis.
Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal and all-rounder Hardik Pandya are widely known to be best friends, with the pair never failing to take a dig at one another when an opportunity comes.
And recently, Chahal had a lot of fun trying to joke about Hardik’s Instagram post.
On 2nd January, Pandya posted a picture on his Instagram handle, promoting the headphones of a particular brand.
The 24-year-old captioned the picture with, “#MyEssential. Can’t imagine my life without music and @boAt.nirvana helps me #PlugIntoNirvana #IAmAboAtheadToo.”
The post was in harmony until Chahal saw the picture and thought of having some fun. Joking about his interest in music, the leggie commented, “Really, Hardik Pandya?”
The 27-year-old is currently in India, as he was not included in the Test squad to face the Proteas in South Africa. However, Chahal will travel for the limited-overs leg of the series.
On the other hand, Pandya has already made the trip to South Africa, after being included in the Test squad. Cape Town will host the 1st Test on 5th January between India and the hosts, before the ODI series begins in Durban on 1st February.
The tour to South Africa will mark Chahal’s maiden international tour, as the leggie has played all his international cricket thus far at home.
With the South African conditions aiding seamers and pacers more than spinners, it will be a test for Chahal to adjust to the conditions and adapt accordingly.
