Cricket is like a religion in India. The immense following of the sport has left many overseas players in awe and the fans go the distance to even get a glimpse of meeting their favourite cricketers, let alone meeting them. And one of the Indian fans has won the hearts with his gesture towards the Indian cricketers whom he spotted in a restaurant in Melbourne.

The start of the year 2021 was at its best for the fan with the name Navaldeep Singh (according to his Twitter handle) who spotted the likes of Rohit Sharma, Navdeep Saini, Rishabh Pant and Shubman Gill while he was at the restaurant at the same time. He was overwhelmed after looking at the superstars and paid their bill worth AUD 118.69 (INR 6683).

Firstly, he was quick to post a video in happiness having spotted his favourite cricketers and then ordered something for himself just to sit and watch them.

Indian players click a picture with the fan

When the players got to know about a fan paying the bill for them, Rohit Sharma asked him to take the money with even Rishabh Pant hilariously telling that the photo will be clicked only if he takes the money back. However, even then the fan (Navaldeep Singh) didn’t agree. Pant even hugged the fan before the players clicked the picture with the fan and his wife.

Known for his humour, Rishabh Pant even thanked the fan’s wife saying, “Thank you bhabhi ji for the lunch.” The fan narrated the whole incident on his Twitter handle and social media is busy praising him for his wonderful gesture towards the cricketers. No wonder the fan was overwhelmed after meeting the Indian superstars and clearly, 2021 has begun on a great note for him.

Here is the thread of the tweets:

As far as the Indian team is concerned, they are currently enjoying their stay in Melbourne and will be soon reaching Sydney where the third Test is scheduled to take place from January 7. The four-match Test series between India and Australia is poised at 1-1 and if the visitors manage to win the crucial Sydney Test, they will retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
